Instructions for pop-up cards...

I had several nice comments about my pop-up cards, and a few requests to share the instructions, so here goes:

1. I used a five inch square card, and decorated the "upper" side with patterned paper , and the "lower" side with a stamped greeting.

2. I cut a strip of card 4.5 inches long, and scored and folded at 1", "2, 3" and 4" (see above)

3. I overlapped the half inch section and glued it  to form a square (see above)

4. Finally I glued that square into the fold of the card, and stuck the cup-cake (but of course it could be anything ) to the third side.

They are so easy to make, but so effective. I hope these instructions help...I'd love to see what you make!
