How To Make A Personalized Pop-Up Card For Any Occasion
Hi friends, it’s Vero from @verobujo on Instagram and Youtube, and today we are making the pop-up card below!
It’s a simple and fun way to elevate your next card for any event/occasion!
What you’ll need
- Two pieces of colored paper (about A5 size), I’m using the black for the outside and pastel green for the inside notepad papers from @archerandolive
- White card stock to create the design, or wrapping paper, or the free printable that I have included here
- Glue Stick
- Scissors, find my favourite ones from Archer and Olive here

Take the outside paper (mine is black) and fold it in half, then take the inside paper (pastel green for me) and mark the pastel green so that you can cut it down a fraction. The idea is for the inside paper to be slightly smaller than the outside card.
We are then going to fold the paper in 4. You can choose to have each fold the same width or create them slightly uneven, as long as the mirrored folds are the same.
The folded result should look like an M or W.
Next we are going to cut out the pop up section where there'll be two windows peeping in to the decorative paper of your choice.
I chose to cut 2 and a half squares from the borders, but you could do it a bit less or a bit more.
Next, I'm going to place the decorative paper down on the black card. You need to fold the decoration in half and glue it so that the creases of the black card and your paper match up.
Then place the pop up paper over the top and glue the two sides that don't have the cut out on to the paper. Your end result will look like this
I've added some other angles below:
I hope you enjoyed!
