Steps- How to make a Heart Pop-up Card- DIY Valentines Day Card
Watch the video or follow the below steps!
Apply glue all over one side of the red card stock paper and stick the white paper (22 x 11 cm) over it. Fold it in half.
Fold the white square paper (11 x 11 cm) diagonally and draw one side of a heart as shown below. Get a heart-shape out of it by cutting it through the line we just drew.
Now, open it and you will get a heart-shape.
Place the heart-shape from step 2 over the cardstock paper and use it as a template to cut a heart out of it. Let’s keep it aside.
Fold three red square papers (8 x 8 cm, 7 x 7 cm, 7 x 7 cm) diagonally and draw one side of a heart on each of them with a small line connecting it to the diagonal crease. Cut each of them along this line and unfold them.
Cut each of them along this line and unfold them.
Cut a small triangle shape out of each of these shapes and you are left with what is shown below.
You can see a tiny triangle left in the middle of these shapes right? Apply some glue over that little triangle. Now stick the other wing over it.
Connect all the three together by applying glue to the back of one side of each of them.
Now, open the card we left at step 3. Stick both the ends of the red hearts on each side of the card. Add some decorative stickers and stick a ribbon using hot glue gun to make it look prettier 🙂

I always prefer giving hand-made greetings to my husband as it has so much more meaning than any card from the stores. And with a design like this, I’m sure he’s gonna love it when I make this one for his birthday. Thanks for the share.
What an awesome diy. I always make my own cards as is just so much more personal and they appreciate it a lot more too.
Great tutorial. I am a visual learner so your step by step photos really work for me!
