How to make a Pop Up Dress Card DIY
First you will need to make a little Origami Dress!
We have a great post about how to make an Origami Dress, here.. or you can watch the following video!
How to make a paper dress origami
If you are using an A6 Card – then 12cm x 12cm paper is a great size to get a lovely paper dress to fit just inside your card.
Assembling your Pop Up Dress Card
Once you have your origami dress all ready, it is time to assemble your pop up card. Watch the video on auto play on this page to learn how to assemble the card into a pop up. Or read the written instructions here!
First fold the dress in half – right side out. You should have a crease running down the middle of the skirt already. You are just accentuating it! It needs to be very neat! Also, if the back of the dress (where the sleeves are) doesn’t fold flat, you may wish to glue these parts down.
Make two small folds to either end of the skirt – a bit like a thin triangle. These will be the parts you need to glue down into your card.
Add glue to the back of these paper triangles.
Place your card flat and place your dress on top. Hold the triangles in place and check that the dress folds as the card folds, as well as that it doesn’t peep out. If you are happy with the placement, press down to help make the paper dress stick!
Take a length of Baker’s Twine (I did not measure ours, but it is approximately 20cm long).
“Peg it” to the top of the dress.
Then loops the ends and glue on to your card stock. I used glue stick for both the dress and the bakers twine and it was just fine.
Let it all dry and your Pop Up Dress Card for Mother’s Day is finished. Isn’t it adorable? I do love how these paper dress cards turned out. So very cute. As mentioned, I think these would be great for a fashion orientated birthday card, as wedding card or as a DIY Prom Day card…
