Make this great card for Father's Day, birthdays - or any occasion with a dash of DIY is the answer.

Father’s Day is just around the corner and we created this project with pop’s day in mind, but we think it’s perfect for any occasion where a dash of DIY is just the right ingredient. So check it out - the Light-Up, Pop-Up Greeting Card!

Creative Technologist Nick made this project by building a classic pop-up card and adding just a touch of geekery - some copper tape and a handful of LilyPad components. Specifically, here are the parts he used:

The results are pretty cool and certainly (we think) better than the sickeningly sweet poetry you might find in a standard grocery store greeting card. So this Father’s Day (or birthday - or graduation day) build your loved ones a card they’ll proudly display!

  • Very cool, great job! Is that an additional LilyPad slide switch towards the front of the card? Makes more sense than just the switch on the battery holder.

    I’m thinking I may make a simple slide switch with the copper tape, similar to those used in the commercial cards with sound chips. Thanks so much for the idea and inspiration!

  • sickingly => sickeningly

    But cool card and cool idea.

  • I like it and wanna build it.
