nursery rhyme pop up card

Here is another fun filled nursery rhyme inspired learning card….Do you remember this one?

Little Miss Muffet

Sat on a tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey;

Along came a spider,

Who sat down beside her

And frightened Miss Muffet away.



Here is my functional card with pop up features inside, a ribbon scroll to roll up and play with, some learning for the little ones and loads of imagination.


Every word in the nursery rhyme is used to the fullest and there is a clear transition. The Ms Muffet sketch cut out is stuck with spring (aligned to the tuffet) and appears bubbly enjoying her curd and whey (hope the kids get less fussy about food watching this!). Her tuffet is 3D, made by wrapping a matchbox with patterned paper. I have cut green polka dotted patterned paper (stuck on cardstock) in thin strips and twirled it for fun grass effect. Well you can also use is as an handle to open and shut the card!

For the face of the card I used a combination of yellow and orange card stock, cut out birds, a cat, grass and trees from various patterned papers. I have used pearl embellishment to decorate the brick wall.

 For a wall (brick) effect, I made my own stencil (from an OHP sheet) and an home made modeling paste

For writing the poem, I have simply used a piece a ribbon attached to a straw wrapped in glitter paper. Got my kid to write the poem on it to  personalise the card.


Inside the card is the fun part. Again, have used a combination of yellow and orange, but instead of modelling paste have misted with stencil for brick effect with white ink (or else it would become too thick).

Note the pop up spider web (have used the traditional origami technique for cutting the web) and a big black spider  (have dabbed it with white ink). The other pop up features are simple pop up cuts, so when you open the card, Ms Muffet, curd bowl and the startled cat stand up.


Once again to create the effect and fallen curd and whey I have used home made modeling paste mixed with some colors, and used a paw punch to create and effect of pug marks of the frightened cat.

On top don’t miss the ribbon scroll to which I have attached a small piece of Velcro. Firstly it is thrilling to open the scroll , secondly since I cut out the patch for creating a 3D tuffet, this scroll functions as a cover for the cut out patch. Once done, you can simply stick it back and fold the card.  
Lastly I have cut the polka dotted patterned paper in semi circles to create a scene.

Here are some other pics depicting transition after the spider appears and Ms Muffet shouts
