Pop Up Party Invitation

I created these surprise party invitations for my future father-in-law’s 65th birthday. A couple photos didn’t come out very clear, but I no longer have them in my possession to take addition photos. I wanted to show you how you can make a very simple pop up card.

I didn’t do much drawing or serious x-acto knife work here,  and the pop up itself is very simple. It is an L shaped pop-up mechanism that creates a step coming out of the page. I created the balloons on the front cover, and many of the embellishments on the inside, on my own. This was mainly because I was too cheap to buy the already made scrap-booking birthday party embellishments by Jolee, and so I took a picture of the ones I liked on my phone in the store, and then used them as inspiration to make my own versions at home.

The pop-up balloons in the center are simply cut out using scissors and drawing the shape of a balloon and I added tiny strips of ribbon for the balloon strings. And as always, I hand wrote all the text in the card.

If you don’t have the time or patience to create your own embellishments, you can easily make these exact invitations by purchasing some ready-made scrapbooking party stickers, using some pinking shears for a little pizzazz or any other paper punching device to make the paper look pretty, and a couple sheets of paper. I’ll show you soon how to make the L shaped (as well as a V shaped)  pop up card and how you can easily decorate a pop-up that will make any occasion fun and special.
