Pop Up Heart Card Printable – Materials
- Per card you will need 2-3 sheets of paper* – however, we used light cardstock for the “outside of the card” and normal paper for the inside. It is totally up to you
- Colored pencils or markers or crayons for colouring and decorating
- Glue stick for assembly
- Your free printable heart card (The “Blank” version is available on Gumroad for free. Simply add $0 – the full set is available on TPT)
*if you wish you can print these on light cardstock paper.. but ordinary paper works just fine!
How to assemble your Pop Up Heart Card Printable
We have a quick video to show you how to assemble your cards! However, the printable above comes with printable instructions for assembly.. or you can read the written instructions below!
How to make a pop up heart card – step by step instructions
Print and colour the heart template
Print your “outside” of your card on light card stock (optional)
Then print your “inside” hear and the instrucions and optional stickers onto normal paper.
Colour to your hearts content! As mentioned you can do this as simple or detailed as you like. You could even experiment with watercolors!
Cut and assemble the pop-up heart
Cut out the inside heart RECTANGLE along the dotted lines.
Fold in half – so the heart is on the outside and you can see the dashed lines for cutting.
Cut along the dashed lines – NOTE – you leave a section intact – ie you do NOT cut out the hole heart.
Crease the top and bottom of the paper in the opposite direct on the heart crease. So you will need to make a mountain fold at the centre of the heart and a valley fold at the edges.
Glue down this sheet (do NOT add any glue to the heart).
Your pop up heart card is finished. You can now add “stickers” or your own embellishments to decorate if you wish! Write some lovely messages and pop it in an envelope and give it to your loved one.
I hope you found this tutorial and free printable heart pop up card fun! And that you give it to a special person!
