Origami Tree Pop Up Card

Origami Tree Pop Up Card

Hey guys Paper Chaser TO here! This is a video of me cutting the Origami tree pop up card template. Make sure you take breaks while cutting this out as it can be a tedious task if you are not up to the challenge. I was able to cut it out all at once with the help of music and I complete zoned out perfect meditation for me.

If you want to make it a much higher quality paper card, you’ll have to go buy card-stock at your local craft store. I get my craft supplies from Michaels. By going out and buying higher quality material your projects will most likely last a lot longer.

Written Instruction:

Step 1

I start but printing the template out.  You can re-size the image to your liking.

Start by taping the template onto cardstock or any thick paper you have.  I like to de-stick my tape by dabbing it on the back of my hand a couple of times, this ensures my cardstock won’t peel off with the tape once I’m done cutting.

Using a ruler and an x-acto knife I like to cut all the straight edges first.

Step 2

I then move on to scoring the dotted lines. Scoring the lines ahead of time make folding the card a lot easier.

Step 3

The most difficult part in my opinion is cutting out the island pieces. They tend to be a bit finicky and if you don’t have a sharp x-acto like I do, you’ll need to retrace your cuts.  I like to flip to the cardstock side and retrace the cuts there – this just ensures I don’t double cut.

Island pieces are the pieces that are not connected to the main piece

Step 4

Switching to good old pair of scissors makes cutting the rest of the template a breeze.

Step 5

Along the scored lines, fold the pieces upward, respectively.  I find folding the shortest sections first the easiest.  Then fold the base piece upwards as well.

Grab another piece of cardstock, fold it in half and glue the tree cut out along the centre fold line.

Let the glue dry and give your card a test run. Close it and open it to see if everything pops up as it’s supposed to.  It takes some precision to get it just right but the end result is magnificent.
