  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Pen


  • 2 Sheets coloured card or construction paper
  • 1 Fathers Day card printable
  • Double sided sellotape optional


  • From your two pieces of coloured card or construction paper take one piece and fold this in half.
  • With the second piece take your scissors and cut a small amount off one long side and one short side. This is so when you stick the two pieces of card together the inside part doesn't stick out. Fold the smaller piece of card in half as well and then check that they fit ok but placing the smaller piece of card inside the larger one and closing them. If you can't see the inside card then you cut off enough!
  • Take your inside piece of card and cut four slits into it from the folded side towards the outside. These will be the parts that you stick your Batman and Robin printables on so it's best to do these in two groups of two cuts. Opening your card back out push the two cut sections outwards and pinch the edges so that they will stay put when you open and close the card.
    how to make a pop up card
  • Write your message in your card. We went with the one from DC Comics "To Dad, Thanks for being the (Batman) to my (Robin). Happy Fathers Day"
  • Put glue on the back of the inside par of your card - except on the pop up bits you just cut out - and then carefully stick it into the second piece of card, ensuring that the folds on both cards line up and the the pop up part of the card is popping outwards.

We've used different colours for the inside and outsides of our cards but you could use the same colours if you prefer. Just make sure that the inside is a light enough colour for you to be able to write on.
We found it easier to write the message int our cards before we stuck them down.
We've used double sided tape to secure our Batman and Robin symbols in place as we wanted to make sure that we didn't get glue on the inside of our cards at all but if you don't have any then of course you can use glue instead.
