Print out your template on heavy paper or card stock.


Cut out the cake and the candles.
Fold your candles and cake according to the directions.

Decorate the outside of your card if you wish.

Pop up cake
Simple wave shapes in different colours decorate but do not detract from the inside surprise!

Glue your candles and cake to the inside of your card. Allow the glue to dry and then carefully fold in the candles and cake. After a couple of times opening and closing, the paper will loosen and the cake and candles will "pop up" easily.
Write in a message for that special person and surprise them with their own pop up card!
