How to make a Twist and Pop Mother’s Day card

What you need:

Instructions step by step

We have prepared a couple of different versions, one more suitable for home use and one more suitable for classroom use. We are presenting the home version.

Print the template, the card page on colored cardstock, and the instructions page and some of the template parts on white (or other light colored) cardstock.

Color the letters (and the background if you want).

Cut out the pattern pieces (both sheets).

The card is ready to assemble.

Start by folding the largest rectangle in half (the one with two triangles). This will be the base of the card (the triangles should be on the inside).

Next, take a rectangle with 3 parallel dashed lines.

Fold along those dashed lines (w-shaped).

Fold along all the dashed lines on the final rectangle. Make the folds crisp. Unfold.

Grasp the two ends, pinch them slightly and start weaving them together. This movement may seem difficult but it’s actually very easy.

This is what you will see when you put the ends together. You can watch the video to see this step clearly.

Now apply glue to the triangular part of the folded paper (one side only)…

…and glue it to the card base (in the designated places marked with triangles). Apply glue to the other side of the folded paper (in the triangular area).

And close the card. Press down and wait for the glue to set.

Take a piece of paper folded in the letter W and paste a ❤️ MOM picture on it.

Open the card base (you will see a cross). Apply glue to the areas marked with the word glue (see image below). If you don’t see the word glue – help yourself with the image below.

Make it stand out

Glue the W-fold onto the card. Set aside to let the glue set.

Draw two rectangles on scrapbook paper (both 2 times).

Decorate your card with these images.

The larger one goes outside.

All has been done!
