Supplies needed for Pop Up Card:

  • tulip flower template <—- Get the template here
  • 8.5 x 11-inch green cardstock (65 lb.)
  • 8.5 x 11-inch red, pink or purple cardstock (65 lb.)
  • extra strength glue stick

Step 1

Start by folding your green card reserve paper in half the width. Open it up and cut it in half along the crease. Fold the cardboard in half lengthwise to create your card.

Optional: To create a larger card, simply fold the 8.5 x 11 inch keycard in half to the width to use for your card.

Step 2

Use scissors to cut two slits in the center of the folded side of the card, 1 inch apart. Make each slot about 2 inches long.

Step 3

Fold down and fold the center part of the card created by cutting the slots.

Step 4

Carefully reopen the green card. Flip the piece of paper you just folded down and close the card along the fold. When you unfold the card, the reverse should stay upright in the fold of the card to accentuate your tulips.

Optional: If you choose to make a larger card for multiple flowers, you’ll need to cut two slits for each flower you include. Take a look at the photo above as an example.

Step 5

Download the tulip template. The pattern’s petal page creates three pop-up flowers. You will need three of the petal pieces for each flower. The leaf page of the template includes enough leaves for 6 flowers. You will need two leaves for each flower.

Print the leaf page on green cardstock and the tulip petal page on red, pink or purple cardboard. Cut out floral pattern pieces for your pop-up flower card.

Step 6

Double the two petals for each flower. Add glue to the right and left edges of the unopened petal and attach your folded petals to it, with the folded edge of the petal facing inward on both sides. This gives your tulip a 3D flower effect.

Step 7

Use a glue stick to add glue at the top of the pop out on your card. Stick your 3D confetti on the pop-up window. If you have multiple flowers, stick each flower on the opening of the card.

Step 8

Complete your pop-up card by sticking two leaves underneath the flowers on the stem.

Step 9

If you want to personalize your card for a Mother’s Day card, a Valentine’s Day card or a simple spring card, use a marker to write

You can be as creative with this card as you like. You may want to make some extra flowers out of paper and glue them to the back of the card. This will make it look like many layers of tulips in a garden.

We also used a lighter leaf color for one of our cards to add color and dimension to the pop-out flower. You can even mix and match different colors of the petals to form colorful tulips. Make your card unique and special to you.
