8-Bit Pop Up Cards Invade Birthdays and Other Special Occasions

 |  |  |  |  |  |  May 21, 2012


Hallmark cards are fine, but they usually aren’t very geeky, so stop giving them your hard earned money. Make some cards yourself like these 8-bit cards instead!

These pixel art cards were created by Kate Lilley, a blogger and author of crafting books for kids. Obviously she loves retro video games. After getting a ton of positive feedback for an 8-bit heart popup that she created, she was inspired to make these cards. There’s the alien from Space Invaders and the skull from The Legend of Zelda. These beat store-bought cards any day and besides, I’m a sucker for all things Space Invaders.

If you want to make these yourself all you need is a sharp crafting knife, and be prepared to supervise your kids if you plan on letting them help. A sharp knife is being used after all. Check out Kate’s blog for the templates and directions.
