Recently I discovered some beautiful “hallmark-like” pop up flower bouquet cards online. I absolutely loved the look of them but as a crafter, my thoughts had me scheming how to DIY the project – just like I did last month with my new Floating Teacup Tutorial!
I received tons of requests inside my Facebook group for me to design a similar concept that could be handmade. Nine failed prototypes later, I finally came up with a design that worked.
In today’s tutorial, I will teach you how to make these pop-up flower cards. These pop-up flower cards are perfect for Mother’s Day or any occasion!
Sure, these pop-up cards may look less “perfect” than the store-bought ones, given I am not computer or machine manufacturing them. However, I still am happy with the results and I think you will be too!
The best part is these templates are completely free for a limited time! Be sure to download them inside my Freebie Vault.
