Mother's Day Mini Pop-Up Accordion Card*

I am on a roll! I am feeling a little inspired lately, ever since I watched card-making videos on YouTube. I made a pop-up card today, especially for my mom. Mother's Day falls on 10th May this year, so why not prepare your gifts and cards early? I made a card last year for my mom and this year, I made another one for her.


I love this pop-up accordion card because it is tiny! It saves paper and it's definitely cute! The challenge you'll face when making small cards is to have patience when measuring and cutting your card stock, as there's very little margin for error.


This card is 100% handmade, except for the flowers and brad, of course. Lol! The letters M-O-M for Mom are cut by hand. However, it would help if you have die-cut machines; you'll be able to cut your alphabets perfectly. I tied a ribbon around it as a finishing touch. The ribbon also helps to hold it so that it won't pop-up. I hope you like it.


Basic material: White card stock, coloured card stock,
Embellishments: Silk flowers (Daisy D's Flowers - Bring Me Cheer
),
crystal brad (Making Memories - Crystal Lights Mini Circle Brads
), grosgrain ribbon
