Everyday Pop-up Cards: Onesie and Flower

Still loving the designs on Everyday Pop-Up cards, but I think the mechanism on this card is the trickiest I've done so far! I made this Onesie card for a friend who recently had a beautiful baby boy:

The mechanism is really hard to see, but here's the pinwheel inside:

I made a tutorial with one of the other cards using this mechanism of turning to open. I hope this helps, but it is a tricky card, and it doesn't always collapse to close smoothly!

Thanks for coming by! Let me know if this post and video helped you!


  1. This was incredibly helpful!!!! I have read lots of your posts on the cricut MB and it was fun to hear your voice! :)

    So nice to see that spinning mechanism and I really like your tip to use a post-it to write notes in the books that come with cartridges!
