Dinosaur Pop Up Card DIY

Dinosaurs are very masculine and make the perfect Father’s Day card idea! What better way to show Dad you think he is great or ‘dino-mite’ than a cool pop up dinosaur card.

By the way you can always change the message on this card to Happy Birthday so it can work for that occasion too.

We love dinosaur crafts for kids especially my cool dino finger puppets 

I do plan on getting lots more pop up cards for Father’s Day as well as other times of the year. 

Previously my kids made a gorgeous 3D Flower pop up card for Mother’s Day and it turned out so well!

This type of paper craft can take more time than some of my 15 minute crafts with fewer steps but it is worth the effort and is such a thoughtful gesture.

Mom needs to help with this step by step craft with paper and scissors. Luckily I have a free template which you will find at the bottom of this post. 

I have tons of great unique pop up cards for you to make yourselves!

Learn how to make a pop up dinosaur card below.
