For the POP-UP element, cut a 40cm piece of string or ribbon, and stick your chosen shapes & phrases to it. Important: Only decorate the middle 16-18 cm of the string.

stick some cute super hero shapes to the string with cellotape on your  homemade fathers day card to create the pop up effect

Tape your shapes to the string by applying cellotape to the back of the shapes.

Punch a hole in each top corner of your card. Tie the string to the holes. Important: Make sure the string is the right length (approx 20cm) so you can open the card – but not fully – thus creating a pop-up effect!

TOP TIP: We didn’t do this, but – in hindsight – it’s probably A LOT easier to write in the card at this stage, while the string has not been tied onto both corners..

To make the pointy bunting shapes: mark the centre of the panels at one end – then mark 2cm up each side, draw a line and cut (see picture above) I cut three at a time. You can also omit this step – or cut the bunting any other shape you want!
