How to make a Pop Up Father’s Day Card

Next weekend it is Father’s Day and also BB’s 4th Birthday weekend. Poor Daddy’s day will probably end up getting overshadowed by pirate parties, birthday cake and an over excited little boy, but we are determined not to let Daddy think he is not loved , so have made him a really cool personalised pop card. Do you like it?

Having multiple toddlers is tough! I know I have to keep up with them everyday so I’ve always tried to make my health a top priority. It’s hard to find time to workout as a mom, but if you start the habits while you’re still pregnant, they will carry over into your schedule after your little one is born. Of course you want to eat healthy for yourself and your growing baby, so check out this article on eating healthy during pregnancy. You might find that you’re too tired in the 1st trimester to exercise, but you’ll want to start a pregnant work out routine and make plans to transition into postpartum workout plan after you’ve recovered from delivering. Besides, it gives you an excuse to go shopping for postpartum fitness pants!

To make this card you will need:

  • 2 pieces of A4 card
  • scissors
  • glue
  • ruler
  • 1 pipe cleaner
  • 2 little pom pom balls
  • A print sheet (that I will give you if you email me!) or you can make your own graphics.

How to make! 

Print out the graphic sheets I made (add your photo’s in the spaces)

Firstly fold one of your pieces of card in half.

Cut out the insert print and stick inside the card. Fold the card back over.

Measure 4cm down from the fold on the front of the card and make marks at 5cm, 7cm, 9.5cm, 11.5cm, 14cm and 16cm – this is so you have three 2cm strips. (Or make new measurement if you have less or more children!)

Cut down the sides of these strips.

Open the car up and push and fold the strips so that they come through to the centre of the card.

Fold the second piece of card in half. Place on top of the first card inside and glue together so that you don’t have the gaps behind the strips anymore.

Cut out the front sheet and stick on the top of the card. (just change your photo!)

Cut of the bodies of the boys and girls you need from the print sheet.

Stick these to your inside strips.

Cut two pieces of pipe cleaner to come out the sides as arms and attach with sticky tape behind the strips of each edge.

Add a pop pom with glue (hold in place with a paper clip until dry!)

Print out a face of each of your children and cut out – stick them over the faces of the boy and girl cartoons.

Get your children to write their message!

Hope you have fun!
