Cute 8-Bit Pop-Out Cards - DIY
CUTE! These handmade 8-bit pop-out cards (that are easy to make) are a MUST and completely handmade! CUTE!

Supplies Needed:

Rainbow paper (letter size)
Craft knife
Ruler (preferably a metal one)
Cutting mat
Needle or compass point for scoring
Tape or glue for securing envelope

Free Templates:

1. Print out the envelope and card templates. Set your printing preferences to ‘photo’ and ‘greyscale’. Cut out the outer card, popup insert and envelope (dotted lines).
2. Take your pop-up insert and using a craft knife and ruler cut along the black lines. Next score along the grey lines using a ruler and sharp point (a compass point or needle for example). Take your time and cut and score as accurately as you can.
3. Turn the card over so that the printed lines are facing down, then fold the card slowly along the mid-line and start to fold the bottom of the pixel character. You will notice that the design starts to pop-out.
This is the trickiest step so make sure you take your time – you might even want to do a test run first using some cheap printer paper. If the shape does not automatically pop out then use a toothpick (or something similar) to ease the shape out as you are folding. When you have folded the popup insert completely in half, smooth down.
4. Score and fold your envelope template.
5. Glue or tape the pop up insert inside the outer card. I kept my outer card plain but you can use patterned paper if you fancy it.
6. Write your card. You can seal the envelope with some washi tape or a sticker.
You have to admit, even if you weren't a diy-crafter before you saw this, you definitely want to make these! It'd even be a great idea to make a bunch of these in advance for little kids' birthdays throughout the year. Make these once and you'll always have one ready to go when you need one!
I know that if I was still a kid, I'd go crazy for these!
