3D Alien Pop-up Card

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a simple cut and paste paper card that can be done "just for fun", a space theme or a Halloween theme.  After carefully folding it, this card will "pop up" when you open it!

I did the photo in black and white because I think it's a little easier to see the folding I did.

Quick tips:  Color before you cut.  Fold before you glue!



    valley fold   Valley Fold:  fold so the picture is inside the fold (you can't see it anymore)

    mountain fold   Mountain Fold:  fold so the picture is outside the fold (visible after you fold it)


(An instructional video is available to help create your pop up card.)
