Pop Up coffee card

Anything Goes with a Fun Fold for Creative Creases #51

I saw a version of this kind of pop up on Pinterest and I thought that I had to try one for myself. The post calls the design a Bijou Pop & Flip Card and you can find the tutorial HERE.

Funnily enough, my local coffee shop had the words I’ve included on the inside on a small plaque and I got permission to use them. I found the saying amusing and in a way this is another reason the card was made. I did this on the computer and printed it onto CS.

Basically I followed the tutorial so I won’t go into the ‘how to’ here. Suffice to say that I adapted a couple of things because I used a smaller circle so the inside pieces needed to be a bit smaller. I learned that using a scalloped edge is probably not the best idea as they stick a bit when opening it. Next time I will use a straight edge circle or oval. There will be a next time as I like the result a lot and it is a cute way to make a card. My stamps are from a new set called Coffee Characters and came with dies, purchased from Your Next Stamp here in Canada. (Thank you Lisa K. for the link). I stamped, coloured with various pencils and Sakura Glaze pens, then die cut the image. The paper is from StampinUp and I really like these marbled papers a lot. The other small change I made was adding a frame around the edge of the die cut as I didn’t like the impression the die had made during the cutting process.

This is my first entry into the Creative Creases challenge and it is fun to participate in a new to me challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Double thanks Gayle. I obviously forgot to check the link. Think I’ve fixed it now. I had fun making this one, and will definitely try another. Have several ideas floating around.


    1. I like making 3D fun fold cards although getting measurements right can be challenging at times. Glad you like this one.


    1. Thanks. It isn’t a hard card to make but definitely a smooth edge on the pop up would make it easier for the operation of the pop up part.


  1. Thanks – In some ways that sentiment generated the card although at the time doing it as a pop up wasn’t in my head. I wish I could think of amusing lines like this on my own. The stamp set has a few good images with a coffee theme so I shall have fun doing a few others.


  2. Oh, I am so happy to see your wonderful card in our gallery! This card is adorable and has such a great fun fold technique. Thank you for playing at Creative Creases Challenge. I hope you can join us again soon.
