14 Jun Dinosaur Pop Up Card Tutorial
I’ve always loved dinosaurs ever since I was a child. They are gigantic creatures that let your imagination run wild. It’s hard to believe that they once roamed the earth. For father’s day this year, I decided to make a dinosaur pop up card that has a daddy and baby Tyrannosaurus (T-rex). Originally, I was going to make one with a Triceratops, but I didn’t have enough room to fit one in. This card is also great to make as a birthday card for that kid or adult, who loves dinosaurs. So here’s what the card looks like:
I wasn’t sure what a baby T-rex looked like so I had to look it up. I made the dinosaurs brown, but I’ve also seen them in green. So you could make the dinosaurs green and the background brown. The design is simple, but it took me a few tries to get the jaw of the daddy T-rex to come out right. I wanted to design the card so you wouldn’t need glue, but the tabs became so fragile, that I decided that a little glue was ok.
Here is a view of the card from the top.
Here’s what the card looks like in action:
