This card is not a real pop–up, but it comes very close to one. Once opened, the flower pot reveals the greeting phrase and has a three-dimensional effect.
It’s quite easy to do, although you’ll have to have the patience to cut the various pieces and color the flowers.

FLOWER VASE CARD
colored cardboard – white cardboard – thick bi-adhesive tape – various coloring and cutting elements (pdf below) – glue stick – black marker – colored pencils or markers – scissors
First, download the pdf documents. Cut out all the pieces and color them.
First, let’s see how to create the base of our floral card:
Cut three pieces of cardboard in the following sizes:
a. 28 x 11 cm
b. 11 x 2 cm
c. 8 x 7 cm
On the bigger piece (28×11 cm) make two folds, one at 14 cm and one at 20.
On the longest side of piece c (8×7 cm) marke with a pencil 1 cm from the edges and cut so as to have the shape of a vase.
On the second fold of piece a, apply the vase on the base and attach the strip so as to get to the edge.
Now attach the flowers to your vase.
Inside the card, attach the the written greeting card with bi-adhesive tape so that when you open the vase it remains standing.
