Most people enjoy receiving greeting cards that are out of the ordinary, such as pop-up or pull-out cards. Moving cards such as these will surprise and delight their receivers, and can add excitement to any celebratory event or holiday. Although you could buy a premade pop-up or pull-out card at a store, it can be more exciting to create your own handmade moving card using a few craft materials that can be found at any art supply store.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Cut out a shape from construction paper that you want to be pulled out or to pop out of the card. You can make the shape anything that you wish, such as a balloon, animal, heart or smiley face. Glue the shape onto a construction paper rectangle that is roughly 1 inch wide by 4 inches long.

  2. 2

    Fold a sheet of construction paper in half widthways.

  3. 3

    Fold a second sheet of paper in half widthways.

  4. 4

    Cut the second sheet in half along the fold.

  5. 5

    To make a pull-out card, cut a slit into the middle of the half sheet. Insert the rectangle holding the shape inside the slit. Glue the half sheet onto the inside of the folded page, leaving about 2 inches unglued to allow the receiver to move the shape in and out of the card.

  6. 6

    To make a pop-up card, fold the rectangle holding the shape back and forth in an accordion-like style. Glue the end of the accordion rectangle inside the folded card. When the receiver opens up the card, the shape will pop out.

  7. 7

    Write a personal message onto the front and inside the card before giving it to your loved one.
