Materials List

  1. stamps
  2. stamp pads
  3. colored paper
  4. markers
  5. scissors
  1. Gather your materials. Protect your workspace with newspapers or a paper bag.


  2. Fold a rectangular piece of colored paper in half (short sides together).

  3. Decorate your card with stamps and write a message with markers. Try decorating the edges by cutting zig-zags, semi-circles or squares.

  4. Or, try making a pop-up card! Start by making two cuts along the folded edge of the paper. The cuts should be about 1-inch long. This will make a little flap; push the flap inside the card.

  5. Cut out a heart, star or any shape you like. Decorate it with stamps and glue it to the flap. When you open the card, your shape will pop up!
