Christmas Tree Pop-Up Card

By Vera Shelemekh


“Hey, Graphic45ers! It’s crafty Christmas time, isn’t it? I’m sure you’d love to make something unusual for Christmas and I definitely have an idea for you.

Please, find my video tutorial with instructions on how to make an amazing pop-up Christmas card with flying angels inside. I made it of Joy to the World collection which has plenty of angels and is perfect for Christmas fun.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Make the form of angels equal from one and the other side of the Christmas tree.

  • The more space between the Christmas tree parts the more comfortable the movement of angels will be.

  • Use a lace or a ribbon to fix the pop up construction inside the card.” ~Vera

I am so glad that I watched the video. I didn't realize that pop up meant POP UP. This is one of the neatest projects ever. It reminds me of the couple of pop up books we had that went with records. They were Diney--like Pinocchio, and were just MAGIC. The pop ups were incredible, like your angels. I don't think that I would ever take the time to do this myself, I just know me. But I LOVED seeing you do it, and the final product is so cool!!! I hope that you give it to a really, really special person. Someone who appreciates hand work. I just love watching it pop up! This collection is one of my favorite Christmas paper collections. If not my favorite, then my second favorite. No, my favorite :). It is a classic Christmas look that I just love. And the angels are gorgeous. I love that they have different skin tones, too, which is different from the usual. Thank you for taking the time to make this AND make a video. GORGEOUS!
