The printable template for the Clown Fish Pop-Up Card includes a pre-written message – “Dad, I love clowning around with you!” – as well as an option to download a blank version for your kids to add a personal message. This of course also means that the pop-up card can be sent to anyone for any occasion.

As a small side note, for our family, ‘clowning around’ pretty much sums up the relationship between Daddy and the Arty Crafty Kids…hehe!

Preparing the Pop Up Card

Step 2:

To give the card an ‘under the sea’ feel, we need to create a sandy bottom and a gorgeous blue sea.

Use a piece of yellow card stock as the base of the pop-up card.

Cut a piece of blue A4 paper in half.

Take one of the halves an cut out a wavy line.

Step 7:

Unfold the card to a 90′ angle.

The inverted selection of folded paper should now stand upright and ‘POP’ out from the page.

Create two further (and smaller) paper folds, one either side of the central area.

I hope the Arty Crafty Kids love making their father’s day card!

In the last week, we’ve also made a Daddy Shark a doo doo 3D Father’s day. It’s what some would call quirky, but lots of fun to make and it will certainly make everyone smile!
