HOW TO: Make Dad an 8-Bit Pop-up Card for Father’s Day

by , 06/12/12

The 8-bit cards dreamed up by Minieco’s Kate Lilley are relatively easy to make (younger children will need help from an adult) and when multiple layers of colored paper are used, they can give the appearance of a lo-fi three-dimensional image.

After you make the card, have the kids write a note in one of these these super fun retro DIY cards. Say “Happy Fathers Day!” or something more random and surprising  such as “Coin detected in pocket!”

Dad will love that the images look like characters from the arcade games he used to play when he was a kid (and that some dads have yet to give up). The designs feature a heart, a skull and the iconic Space Invader. Dad will be so moved that he might grab a roll of quarters, pack the kids into the mini-van and set out in search of the closest arcade.
