I’m finally finished with my thank you cards! It takes only 4 steps to create this simple pop-up, here’s how:
1. Trim liner to fit inside card as desired:
2. Fold liner in half and make 2 parallel cuts perpendicular to the fold line (size and location as desired, I chose 1/2″ to 2/3″ cuts with matching lengths apart):
3. Open liner and push in fold from the cuts:
4. Glue on desired cut out on the fold’s front face:
The front of a couple of our cards:
They open up like this (yes, one of them says ’many thanks… for being Awesomest Prime!’):
Photo+Quote cards from the Marriage Celebration Tree were also included with the corresponding TY cards:
I recycled as many materials as I could from the wedding. The signs contributed much to this project:
I used tape instead of glue to secure the signs so that I could reuse the paper and ribbons:
I tried several looks before I ended up with the relatively-easy-to-mass-produce versions you see above. Sewing paper is a huge pain in the butt!
We sealed them with some leftover wedding stickers from my cousin’s wedding.
Paper is my least favorite craft so I procrastinated on these forever (in hindsight, I really should have outsourced this). It’s 5+ months after the wedding and I’m just now sending these out! I once heard that I had up to a year to send them out, so I’ve been holding on to that excuse all this time. It ain’t pretty, but it’s done! Woot!
