At our office, one of our co-workers has been out on medical leave right before Christmas. To cheer him up over the holidays, I made this get well soon pop up card / book and had everyone in our office sign it to offer him their greetings. This was sent to him right before the holiday weekend. I hope he enjoyed it! There is a video of the card below.
Hope everyone had a safe, healthy, and joyous holiday!
Get Well Soon – Holiday Theme Pop Up Card
A couple days ago I did the video for this pop-up book I created, but here are some pics of the whole thing, scene by scene. This one took me about a full week to put together and some of the scenes took more than one trial run. It was tricky trying to figure out the design and mechanism for some of the pop-ups. I practiced some of the cut outs on computer paper that I took home with me from the recycling bin in my office. I was determined to use only my left over scraps from holiday card-making and not buy new paper for this project. A couple of stickers (made by Jolee) are also left over from card-making. I will admit that I did need 1 additional sheet of black cardstock paper in order to finish the cover, but other than that, this project was made entirely from scrapbooking and cardmaking scraps and left over paper. For all of you who love scrapbooking and paper crafts as much as me, remember to make good use of all of your paper and don’t let your scraps go to waste. I hope you like it!
Made from this pile of scraps:
This is a card I recently made for my parents! I wrote the rhyming verse. The stickers are made by Jolee and the paper is from Stampin’ Up. The design and craftwork though is made by me, Emily! I will post a short tutorial soon on how to create a basic Christmas pop up card.
Have a beautiful day!
