This is one of those craft projects that can definitely be done without a template, but since we’re asked a lot, we think it’s best to include one (you can read about it at the end of the tutorial) and also explain how to make it one without using the template. It’s really easy.
This card has enough space to scribble your personal message. Kind and warm words for a friend. Silly and adorable for the secret crush. Love and warm words for Mother’s Day. The options are many and no matter the occasion, these tulip pop-up cards will always be a hit.
How to make a tulip in a heart card (with or without our template)
What do you need
- our printable template (you will get it at the end of this tutorial)
- Craft paper for the heart (pink, red, or really any color)
- Flower paper (any color), regular printing paper, or construction paper are fine
- green paper or green marker
- the glue
Paperclips are great for holding cards closed.

Step by step instructions
Once you have decided to work with our model, print it out on regular printing paper. You can also print it out on heavier printer paper and color all the parts for this project.
*Trace the large heart template onto construction paper.
If you’re working without our template, I recommend folding a piece of construction paper in half and cutting out the heart. Draw half of the heart shape next to the fold and cut out so the entire heart shape is symmetrical when you unfold it.
*Cut out the heart shape from the construction paper.
*Glue the white heart (the smallest heart on the model) into the construction paper heart.
If you’re working without a template, make a heart smaller than the first and glue it inside.
*Trace the leaves or draw your own.
*Cut them. Also cut off the stalk.
*Glue the stick into the inner heart, bottom center.
*Glue on two sheets.
*Let the glue dry. Fold the heart in half. Depending on the quality of the glue, you may need to fix some things ;).
let’s do the flower
Trace the shape of the tulip flower onto the paper. You have to trace it multiple times, the more shapes the better (we had 6). You can use the same color for all or make them multicolored.
*Cut out the tulip flower.
Without the template you make the tulips the same way as the hearts because the most important thing is that they are symmetrical. Fold the paper and cut out the “half tulip” shape. Use the first as a template for the others, or if you are working with thin paper (printer paper) you can cut multiple layers at once, creating more tulips at once.
*Once all are cut, fold them in half.
*Glue the halves together.
*Once you’ve glued them all together… Apply glue to one end (half) of the tulip…
*Touch it on the map. Apply glue to the other half.
*And close the card to fix the glue.
