Twist & pop-up card with video tutorial + 1 steem giveaways !!!

in #craftlast year (edited)

Hello! Hello and welcome back to my craft blog! I’m glad I made it at this time despite my hectic schedule. So today, I’m gonna share another DIY tutorial that even non-crafter can do it. This is just a very common interactive card that I made for the baptismal occasion, and I’m using Illustrator for the layout design and laser printer for the printing.




So let’s jump to the materials! All you need for this project is ordinary card stock or any type of paper that you can grab on your stash.


  • 2 pieces of black cardstock ( 160 & 300 GSM )
  • Stick glue
  • Photo paper ( glossy)


  • Trimmer & scoring board (optional)
  • Ruler
  • Pen or pencil

Let’s get started to our tutorial!


Step 1: Cutting

Get your cardstock and cut a piece of 11 3/4" x 4 1/2" for the main cover which is the 300 gsm and 11" x 3 3/4" for the interior pop-up card. And lastly, for the mechanism cut a piece of 8" x 3 1/2" with 160gsm cardstock. The mechanism of the card serves as the big role to pop the card.

Step 2: Scoring and folding

Get your main card and fold in a half using a bone folder to have a nice crease or other option by using a ruler or any tool to avoid cracking.

For the pop-up card, position in a landscape then scores at 2 3/4" - 5 1/2" and 8 1/4". After the scoring is done, fold in the center, and do the same in the two flaps towards the center. It must be a W or M shape.





Lastly, for the mechanism, it’s quite confusing but you can check in my video for a more detailed tutorial. So for scoring, position your card in a landscape then score at 4" then make a notch or guide at 2 1/4” and 5 1/2” this will be the guide for folding in a diagonal position. Rotate the paper in a portrait position and score at 1 3/4” then fold. Let’s proceed for the folding, fold the paper in a half by the long side or landscape side. Then for
the confusing part, fold each diagonal line and it must be formed as X. Make sure the cross lines and X lines are meet at the center for better result. Hold together the two flaps then press to the center to form a structure of a house. The two flaps at the bottom must be aligned. You can cut the excess part if not in the same measurement.








Now let’s proceed for the assembling the 3 parts of the card. 3B7B24EF-C06C-4838-A589-3254E341F481.jpeg

Step 3: Assemble the pieces

Now it’s time to assemble and stick all the 3 parts of the paper. Get the main card and measure the center. Paste the triangular shape of the mechanism then do the same in the other sides. Use a ruler or eyeball it for sticking in the center of the main card. Press gently and wait a few seconds before opening the card.








The skeleton of the card is already done! We can now stick all the designed printed details to the designated rooms or space of the card. I'm using illustrator for the layout and laser printer for the printing using photo paper glossy type. Since I started using illustrator, I enjoyed the software perfect for my invitation home-based sideline.



For the envelope, I customized using 160gsm plain white paper and WRMK (We are memory keepers 1-2-3 punchboard tool).



So that's it! A simple and common type of card making. Here's my link for my youtube channel for a more detailed tutorial. Hope you like my tutorial and see you next time!

I’m so grateful and lucky to be curated again! Thank you thank you so much for always believing in my content! @curie

ehy dear @tonie, you did a really great job !! and I understand your little frustration in learning that your child (like all children) prefer the simple empty box to your long and serious preparation !! do you know why? because they are free to experiment and imagine anything with their imagination. like when they build something with your help and then they destroy everything in a second, and you would scream in despair ... but for them it's just fun, they build and destroy, and then build again. we are the adults who want things that are well defined, clean and clear. because our imagination has been limited in time. but not yours, that you can still imagine beautiful things with magic boxes !! it's nice that even when you grow up you have this passion !!
congratulations on your curie vote and I'm sure many steemians parents are already building many houses around !!! .-))

Hello and thank you so much for your inspiring words @road2horizon...

I was laughing while reading the lines between the kids coz it’s real that kids just want to have fun, they don’t care the mess while parents get tired LOL!
