This lovely DIY pop up card with a gnome, winter forest, and mushrooms is easy and fast to make. It will be a nice Christmas present for your friends and loved ones or decorate your home or workplace. And of course, your kids will be thrilled to make it together with you or receive it as a gift. This 3D card folds flat, and you can put it into an envelope or a gift bag.
All you need to make this card is cardstock, scissors, and glue. After cutting the details, you need less than 10 minutes to assemble it! Just follow our video instructions below. To cut the cardboard, I recommend using a cutting machine (download SVG templates below). But you can also download and print PDF templates and cut them by hand with a craft knife.
