This adorable little pop-up card was one of the projects that we did at Kristen Bryant’s demonstrator meeting on Sunday. It’s a little one with a finished size of 3″x3″.

And here’s the surprise inside:

How to make the Spiral Pop-up: 

  1. Cut out a circle with a circle punch or die. If you want to make a bigger card, you might want to go with a larger circle.
  2. Cut the circle into a spiral with Paper Snips.
  3. Glue the center of the spiral to the middle of the bottom inside of the card by putting a dab of adhesive on the end of the spiral. (I used glue dots, but Kristen used Tombow Multi-purpose Liquid Glue, so use whatever you prefer.)
  4. Add glue to the other end of the spiral and close your card to glue the top of the spiral to the inside top of the card – that way you know it will close properly.
  5. Add stars or other little punch-outs to the spiral.


Tips for making the stars:  For the large stars, punch out a SMALL star FIRST, leaving enough room to punch a large star around it. Turn the large star punch upside down to center around the small star cut-out.


Add a fun spiral pop-up to the inside of your next handmade card.

Happy Stamping!
