Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
This interactive pop up card features an egg that cracks open on pulling the lower flap!
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
The egg in the basket cracks apart by an ingenious yet easy to make pop up mechanism!
Would you believe me if I told you my 5 year old helped me make this card! 
Well seeing all colors of the rainbow I think you will believe a little girl definitely  had her hand in making  this special pop up card!
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
Here is our bunny peeping out through the cracks in the egg! And on completely pulling down the lower flap--taa daa---little bunny in a pop up basket with spring flowers!

The Rose is a punchcraft flower and here is how I made it: Punchcraft Rose Tutorial

The Cala lilies are punchcraft flowers too and were quite easy to make..shall share its tutorial another time! Added some quilled leaves and buds to give company to the Punchcraft flowers.

Egg Pop Up Card Tutorial
This pop up card was inspired by a card on Canon site which has some elaborate pop up cards--I simplified the interactive mechanism to make this pop up card tutorial.
First make the egg for your pop up card
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
Draw and cut out an egg shape from sturdy card stock.Our egg measures 3 x 4.5 inches.Stick some pretty paper over it if you wish.Cut your egg into 2 halves in a zig zag as shown .[Click on the photo to better see the pop up card tutorial ].
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
Take 2 strips of card approx 1inch x 3 inches [ I didnt measure and you need not either!].Fold the card strips as shown in the photo and apply glue to the part shown and stick the lower part of your egg.The last photo in the collage is how the egg- card strips should look to make your egg pop up card!
Make a pedestal for your egg Pop up Card
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
I scored a 2.5 x 5 inch card at 1, 2.5 and  4 inches. Mountain fold all score lines.Parts A and D are tabs of your Pop up card pedestal.
Stick your egg on the Pop Up card Pedestal
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
Apply glue to the  front of the egg-card strip [green part only] as shown and stick it on surface B of the pedestal of your Pop up card .Stick the 2 egg halves such that the edges are  snugly fitting each other.
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
Surface B measures 1.5inches and excess part of the egg-card strip stuck on it can be cut off .[Click on the photo to better see the pop up card tutorial ].
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
Apply glue on the surfaces A and D, fold them under and stick to your card base aligning the score line between B and C with the fold line of your base card.My base card is 9 inches long with the fold line at 3 inches.Surface D should be stuck to the shorter flap and surface A to the longer flap as shown.
Attach a basket to your Pop Up Card
Egg Pop Up card Tutorial
Cut out a basket to cover the whole of surface C and jut above it to cover the lower part of the egg by 0.5 inches or so so that your egg cracks open correctly! Here is my little one applying glue on surface C to stick on the basket for the easter egg!
Felt Rabbit
We made a  bunny by hand cutting some felt. Gave our bunny some quilled ears and a rhinestone nose!

As always I find myself saying dont be daunted by the number of photos in this tutorial-- it is a fun card to make and play with.

  14. Hi Sonia

    This is such a cute card ,but then most of your cards are very cute.Love the idea of using the stencil on the cake,very pretty.

    Feeling a bit envious that you live in India. One of my favourite places to visit .India has such a rich history that included many Countries leaving their mark.My favourite state is Assam ,it's very different from other parts of India.
    Thanks for visiting my blog ,enjoy your day.
