Free printable 3d Love Card for a pop up Valentine card craft

I love kirigami technique, which consists in cutting and folding paper, for example to get pop up cards.

I already created a two hearts kirigami Valentine card last year (you can see and print this “two hearts card” on my french blog), so this year, I decided to write the word “Love” with this kirigami technique to get an original homemade Valentine card. Here are the pop up cards I finally did.

First of all, I began to draw and cut a draft of what I meant to do.

Then, I traced this pattern on the back of the sheet, placing it on a window, to get a symetrical design of the word I had drawn.

I scanned it and printed it on a thick paper (and you can print my 3D love card too :-) ).

Then I browsed the horizontal dotted lines to mark the folds.

I cut every vertical lines and every letters, and cut out the entire card.

Then you just have to push the letters towards the inside…

folding the letters

and fold the middle line of the card with “mountain folds” too.

Turn the card to look at it the right way and fold the small lines at the top of the letters.

Your “love pop up” is ready to be glued in a half sheet of paper. (Better choose a contrasting color for the cover.)

Then you can decorate the inside of the card the way you like. :-) (I used several heart punches)

You saw that I found this craft so pleasant that I made a second card ! :-) Here are both of them.

I decorated the cover as well, with a quilled Valentine design. I’ll show you soon, in a further post… 😉
