Prepare the card for “popping up”. This is how you make a basic Pop Up Card DIY.

To star your pop up card, make sure your background paper is approximately 1cm smaller than your A5 card.

Fold your A5 Card in Half.

Fold your coloured background card in half. Around the centre of this sheet, cut two 1.5cm strips into your back ground paper.

Fold the strips back onto themselves.

Open up the background paper and push the little square you have created through. As mentioned you can check this Pop Up Snowman Card post for information. The same principles apply to this Pop Up Star Wars card.

Get your YODA PRINTABLE HERE

Now make your Pop Up Yoda.

As mentioned you can either download your a Yoda to cut and colour or cut and stick… OR You can follow our instructions that easily “deconstructs” Yoda for you and helps you make your very own Pop Up Yoda from scratch!

To Make Yoda’s Head 

Cut a green oval and two pointy ears. The ears a bit like petals. Then cut a small green triangle for Yoda’s neck.

Draw on your face as per my illustration.

To make Yoda’s Robes

Next cut a long thing rectangle to make form the “underneath” clothing of Yoda’s Robs.

You Now need a beige or light brown robes. I cut a conical shaped beige piece out and made sure it fitted to our head and brown “bit”.

After that I cout out a small slice of circle to represent Yoda’s right harm (held behind his back) and another rectangle for the left harm. Yoda’s hand is made out of a circluar green piece of card.

Finally make a light saber out of your white card. I used a silver pen for the halter and a blue/ yellow highlighter mixed for the green light saber light (I didn’t have a green high lighter, ha!).

Now assemble your Pop Up Yoda 

Like a puzzle glue all your pieces together.

Start with the robes and work your way up.

Assembling your DIY Pop Up Father’s Day Card – Yoda Best Dad

Glue the bottom of your Yoda to the small square on the background paper/ light card.

Then glue the background paper onto your A5 card stock. Be sure NOT to add glue to the little pop out bit.

Make sure you smoothen the background down flat.

FINALLY… print out your YODA BEST DAD message, cut and glue in whatever space you like!

And you are finished!! Whoop.
