LEARN HOW TO MAKE ADORABLE POP-UP CONSTRUCTION CARDS THAT ARE CUSTOMIZABLE!
My cousin recently turned six. He had a big birthday party but we were unable to attend. I wanted to send him something in the mail to let him know just how special he is! So, I immediately thought of how to make a construction card!
I wanted something super cool and super awesome! My son LOVES excavators and I knew Josh (my cousin) did too! So, I created this pop-up card that has an excavator digging in the dirt!
In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.
I will be using vinyl to attach the text to the card but it is totally optional. If you want to glue cardstock, you certainly can!
You can download the SVG file for this project at the bottom of this post.
You can customize the file for the age of your birthday boy or girl, too!
UPDATE 7/18/20: I have added PDF versions of this card in the download. So, if you don’t have a cutting machine, you can print out the layers and assemble the card!!
