If you can’t spend New Year’s Eve with someone, do the next best thing and send them a pop-up New Year’s Card! This card is fun and festive and you can whip up one or two (or more) in a limited amount of time – which is exactly how much time we all have during the holidays! Here’s a look at the card – then keep reading for details to create your own!
Start by cutting the year (numbers) from two different patterned papers:
Cut one set of numbers in half
And glue the half piece onto the whole piece for each number
Add foam adhesive dots to the back of the numbers and set them aside for a moment
Now gather the pieces to make the outside of the card
Assemble the pieces as shown:
Wrap white twine around the white piece and tie a bow
Add the numbers and attach to the card front:
Now for the INSIDE!! Gather these items:
Use scissors to cut the cute girl illustration from the tag:
This is what the inside piece will look like before everything is added:
And here’s how it looks after the pieces are added (the phrase was printed and trimmed):
Attach this piece to the inside of the card:
And that’s it! The card is complete!
Repeat as many times as you want!
Happy New Year!
