Thanksgiving Card

Transform patterned paper into wonderfully personal greeting card. One creative way is to make both folded card and pop-up.


Approximate Time: 30 minutes.


  • cardstock
  • patterned paper
  • double-sided tape
  • glue
  • paper trimmer
  • decorative scissors
  • craft knife
  • ruler


  1. Make a card out of cardstock.
  2. Cut patterned paper to desired size and fold in half.
  3. Using craft knife and ruler, cut two slits in center, 1/2 inch apart, that overlap the crease at one end by 3/4 inch. Close the card carefully so that center strip folds at each end and pops out.
  4. From coordinating cardstock, cut a small rectangle.
  5. Layer patterned paper. Glue to back of pop-up card.
  6. Print message on white cardstock; trim and glue to front of pop-up.
  7. Make a matching envelope.
  8. Then trace the top flap onto coordinating cardstock. Trim with decorative scissors. Adhere.
