DM is a huge Star Wars fan. Munchkin had watched all of the movies (mainly through closed eyes) before she was 5 months old. So for his birthday, it seemed appropriate to make him a Stormtrooper birthday card. And carrying on the theme from last year, it needed to be a pop-up!
As I’m sure you can imagine, life has been a little like riding a rollercoaster this past few weeks. So I was exceedingly happy to carve out a little time to myself to put this card together for DM. His birthday was a low-key affair, but a perfect one. The sun came out over the weekend and we got to relax and enjoy what felt like some of the first Spring days in Lausanne. I also took him to Funky BBQ in Geneva and bought him copious amounts of American BBQ. So he was a very happy man!
I created this card using my cutter/ plotter. Then cut out black cardstock and glued it behind to add the details.
I’ve included all the templates you may need to create your own below. There are PDF, SVG and JPG files with the birthday text and without. This way you can do whatever you like with him!
Customise him to your heart’s content for your Star Wars nerd. They’d make great birthday invitations for a themed party.
You can use a cutter plotter, or print out the PDF version and cut them out using an x-acto knife. For a customised version, insert the .JPG file into your prefered software and add the text over the top.
If you need a more detailed tutorial, he goes together exactly like the heart pop up card I created.
And of course, Munchkin did her part too. She decorated the outside of the card with all her favourite stickers and crayon colours. She is fascinated with the black one at the moment, which whilst being perfect for the project at hand, posed problems when she overshot the paper and scribbled on the table. I think I’ll be investing in a play mat soon!
Now I have to get to work creating an egg to go with this one I made for DM a few Easters ago. I’m hoping to eventually have the full cast!
Note: I’ve no affiliation with Star Wars, Disney or Lucasfilm. Please only use this template for personal, fair use, as I have.
