Tips and Trick For Making A Pop Up Card:
The first mistake we all make when it comes to making pop up cards is selecting a small base for the card. Always make sure the length of the card must be twice the size of the item you want to place inside.
Don’t make the card before making the items you want to place inside. For example, I made the Christmas tree before making the card, so I could measure the tree and then cut out the card.
If you want a large pop up you have to make large cuts on the closed end. The longer the cut is the larger your pop up will be.
Always use thick paper or cardstock paper to make the pop up card.
