How to make an easy heart chain Pop Up Card

Pop Up Heart Cards – Step by Step instructions
Making your pop up hearts
Concertina your white paper in aproximately 3.5cm folds. They need to super neat with each edge aligning perfectly. You need a total of 6 folds!
Draw a half a heart – make sure the “outside” of the heart is on the side that “flaps open” and also that it goes right to the edge – you will need a straight edge there so the hearts do not fall apart, a bit like a Paper Doll Chain. The centre of the heart should be on the closed side.
Cut out the hearts. When you open it up you should have 3 hearts connected together.
Decorating your hearts
Time to decorate! We used our white hearts to trace a stencil and cute a slightly smaller second heart in red. But you can also decorate the hearts with pens, add photographs or do whatever grabs your fancy.
In our case, we glued 3 red hearts to the centre of the white ones. Making sure the “centre” of the hearts “fold in” and not out.
Assembling your pop up heart card
Add glue to the back of the two “outside heart” HALVES and carefully stick down on your card!
Your card is finished. You can decorate with additional paper hearts or write some lovely messages to mum!!
Such an easy pop up card idea for Mother’s Day to make!!! Hope you like it too!
