  • Step 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.

    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!
