Simon’s 40th Birthday Pop Up Card

My brother Simon turned 40 in November and I made him a pop up card with balloons, cake and a fab outfit for him.

I scanned my drawings then coloured them and arranged the pop up tab design in photoshop. I printed the card and the pop up pieces then assembled by hand. The card is approx 125mm square when folded.

I also made a gift box for his present as I couldn’t find the right size and they were really expensive to buy. So I used this simple tutorial with a cereal box and power pritt stick. Then I covered each half with a sheet of A4 printed with a design I made on photoshop. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.

    That box looks so professional! I am inspired.
    Love the card – He looks chuffed, that cake looks delicious and I love the colours in his tank top. Another fine creation, Mrs Creative!
