180-Degree-Open Snowflakes Pop Up Card



Last year’s holiday cards were another Glowforge production. These featured the jig-in-place technique, assembly with dry-transfer adhesive and the wondrous glue eraser.

If you would like to see one made, I did a short video:

Wonderful paper craft! Easy to see your hands are well practiced, further evidenced by the scrap piles shown at the end. Thanks for the demo!

That is beautiful. Thanks for the video. I used to do several popup cards but have not for quite some time. My goal is to make my grandchildren all the same popup card about a story handed down to me from my grandfather that they love!

It looks so routine, how easy it is to do it. A very nice job. Thanks for the video.

I love the card and the video is wonderful. I have never made a pop-up card, but it is definitely on my to do list. I am still just learning about papercrafts. I can see that you are very experienced. Thanks for sharing your process and tricks with us.

Fantastic cards! Thanks for the video, it shows great techniques.
One of the reasons I got a Glowforge was to make pop-up cards and I am still learning.
If you don’t mind sharing, what is the glue paper you are using? It seemed to make it much simpler and cleaner than what I do.

That is Artist-Tac (formerly StudioTac), produced by Grafix. Here’s a link to it on Amazon:

Artist-Tac Permanent Dry Transfer Adhesive

For some things, I also use a glue stick. UHU makes one that is blue when you apply it but, dries clear. It makes it easier to see whether you got good coverage.

They are both acid-free, which is a consideration if you hope for your piece to last more than a few years.

Thanks for the kudos!
