So I finally recreated the 3D heart pop up card from 2009. I was traveling last week so I wasn’t able to work on the card. This new version of the 3D heart is slightly easier to assemble than the original one I made. This card is more difficult to make than the previous Valentine’s Day cards and will take a little more patience to make. But, my tutorial will walk you through the steps. It’s critical that all the parts are cut out very precisely. Otherwise, the heart will not fold flat or will be warped. Here is what the card looks like:

Here is a video of the card in action:

The tutorial for this design can be viewed here: 3D Heart Pop Up Card Tutorial.

You can purchase the template for this card here: 3D Heart Pop Up Card Template.

      Hi Chrl, I’ve updated the template to show the letters. The new file is called “”. Refer to the first PDF page for the letters. If you watch the tutorial video (16 seconds), you’ll also see the locations for all the letters.
