Pop-up lotus flower wedding invitations #Invitations#custom invitations#diy invitations#invitations July 12 2010 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin OBT member Stella hand made her wedding invitations and added this beautiful pop-up lotus detail which is freaking AWESOME! Here it is in all its glory… Pretty cool, right!? I've never thought of adding a pop-up element to wedding invites before so these just got me all excited. Stella was also kind enough to include a link to a template for the pop-up flower and a ton of other nifty pop-up templates for all sorts of occasions. (I wish we had used the pop-up shark for our invites now!) Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

Who wouldn't love getting a pop-up wedding invitation?! 6 agree Reply amazing job stella! 5 agree Reply Cheers JE$S! I really enjoy typing the dollar sign in your name! lol 6 agree Reply My eyes popped out when I opened OOB and this was at the top! I love it, it looks great! 5 agree Reply OMG. I am. SO. Doing this. Thanks so much! I'm obsessed with lotuses. 5 agree Reply Thanks ladies! Lotuses are the best, I'm making a heap of origami lotuses for wedding decorations, favors & centrepieces! I'm also trying to grow some in a little pond in my yard……its easier to make 'em out of paper! 5 agree Reply I really want pop up invitations but can't find anything suitable for our wedding in templates. If anyone sees any tree pop ups, or lanterns.. please let me know!! 5 agree Reply Hi Fate! I had a quick look through some templates on the net, I couldn't find a tree (except for Christmas trees http://bucarotechelp.com/expressions/93010201.asp) or lantern pop-op template, but I did find a video that shows you how to make a pop-up card with any image you like! http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to-make-pop-up-card-for-any-occassion-317206/ I didn't get to watch the full vid (my internet is slow), but I'm sure some experimentation with the tute will get you close what you want.. I reckon you local library might have some books on the subject as well 🙂 Happy Popping! 5 agree Reply Woah, what a coincidence! I just made a card using the same template a few days ago (for a family member's birthday). It's super-easy and really pretty. If you look up "pop-up card" on WikiHow there are a bunch more, too. 5 agree Reply Awesome! How funny 🙂 I was a little intimidated as the template had like 30 steps, but your right it is super easy. I'm going to have a look on Wikihow right now! 5 agree Reply great touch! 5 agree Reply This is so cute! We're loving it. 4 agree Reply I love what you did! The colour looks terrific too. We have a popup invitation which we artwork to suit the colour and theme of the day, I haven't seen one like this though – well done. 4 agree Reply I know this post is 3 years old now, but I really love this idea. I'm a bit disappointed the links are broken. 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
