Add a fun interactive element to your handmade cards by making DIY pull out cards and envelopes. Your recipient pulls out a part of the card in order to read the sentiment or complete the scene.

Interactive cards are so fun to make. They can also be easy to create. In this DIY greeting card, I use an accordion style piece to build a fun surprise into the paper craft.

Once that part is complete, you just need some fun cutouts or die cut pieces of paper to create your pull out card. For this kind of cardmaking technique I highly recommend creating your own envelope or notecard and using lightweight cardstock.

  1. Thank you J.D. for this fun idea: I ´ve never taught of it!!! You gave me a lot of nice ideas on your youtube this year and I bought a lot of craft tools based on your recomendations. Here in Québec I cannot find everything, so I sometimes had to go far to find them 😉
    You should know how important you are for us! your creative finds and videos made me look at my craft as a funny hobby : not another “thing I should do PERFECTLY OR NOT AT ALL. This is SO NICE of you, You are adorable and I’m sure I am not the only one who would want you as a friend! BE YOURSELF :, you are adorable . Hug

  2. I loved this tutorial and blogpost (actually, so far all of your videos I’ve really enjoyed; you are so open and real). Thank you for making a mistake and leaving it in there – it helps to know professionals aren’t perfect & aren’t afraid to show it. Thank you for sharing your sense of humor and your ideas.
