This Pop-Up Cupcake Mother’s Day Card is an adorable kid-made keepsake gift with a surprise inside!
The best Mother’s Day gifts are the ones that your kids make — even better if it is something that you can keep and treasure for yeas to come!
This Cupcake Mother’s Day Card features a pop-up photo surprise and a cute poem that kids will have a blast making and moms will adore.
It only requires basic craft supplies, and kids can actually make this one (little hands might need assistance with cutting and gluing).
Supplies needed for this Pop-Up Cupcake Mother’s Day Card

- printable free cupcake pattern (grab it here!)
- colorful card stock or thick paper
- kids photo
- large craft sticks
- glue stick
- decorations of your choice (stickers, markers, etc)
First, print the free cupcake pattern and cut out the pieces. Trace pieces onto two sheets on card stock: one for the cupcake and one for the frosting.
Cut photo into a smaller rectangle (about 4″ wide by 3″ high). Glue crafting stick to the middle of back of the photo. Attach cupcake frosting to the crafting stick, with a bit of the frosting overlapping the top of the photo. Set aside to dry.
Apply glue to the sides of the small piece of card stock, about 1/2″ on each side. Attach to the back of the cupcake, at the top. Tuck craft stick between cupcake and the tab you glued on the back.
Decorate the cupcake and topper with stickers, glitter glue, markers, or whatever you have on hand. (We used eye-catching foam alphabet stickers).
You’re welcome to use this poem we created on your card:
Because you are so sweet
we made you a special treat.
We put a surprise in the middle,
so you’ll always remember us when we were little.
