Butterfly Pop Out Card with Tutorial

Today I have a surprise pop out card. As you can see from the following picture, it looks very ordinary from the outside. Keep reading for all the measurements and instructions on how you can make it.


  • This pop out card is based on one that I made many years ago.
  • I die cut the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou paper. Sadly it is now retired. The butterfly stamps and dies are still current so you could make this card with the stamps.
  • Add the Designer Series Papers to the inside of the card – the smaller pieces 0.5cm from the outer edges and the larger piece across the middle of the card lining up the score line on the paper with the score line on the card base.
  • Die cut the scallop circle in the middle of the inside cardstock. Use some scrap pieces of cardstock to attach the twine in the centre of the die cut circle. Ensure that the twine is taut before attaching.
  • Add butterflies or other images to the twine (one on each side of the twine).
  • Fold the inside cardstock score lines mountain, valley, mountain. Place inside the card base and close ensuring that none of the butterflies can be seen when the card is closed. Add adhesive to the pop out.
  • Decorate outside as desired.
  • Measurements:
    • Card Base: 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm

    • Designer Series Paper: 14.8cm x 9.5cm (front), 2 pieces 14.8cm x 3.5cm, 14.8cm x 8.5cm scored at 4.25cm
