DIY Handmade Cell Phone Message Pull Out Card Tutorial

CELL PHONE PULL “WOW” CARD 

I’m thrilled to share with you a craft project that’s bound to leave a lasting impression – this interactive Cell Phone Message Pull Out card. Whether you’re a tech aficionado or not, this interactive card is sure to captivate your friends and loved ones. 

This isn’t just any ordinary card with a simple pull, a string of personalized text messages emerges, mimicking the experience of checking your phone for notifications. It’s so lifelike, you might just forget it’s made of paper!

Timing and Occasions:
I chose to set the “phone time” to 11:11 for its significance as a moment of synchronicity and positivity. However, feel free to customize it to match special dates like birthdays, anniversaries, or any occasion close to your heart. This card is versatile and perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, or any celebration that deserves a touch of handmade magic.

Envelope:
While this card fits perfectly in a standard envelope, if you’re sending it through the mail, I recommend adding extra protection with a bubble wrap and opting for hand-canceling to ensure it arrives in pristine condition.

Instructions:
Ready to dive into the crafting process? I’ve got you covered with step-by-step instructions accompanied by clear photos to guide you through each stage. Additionally, I’ve prepared graphics for the messages, perfectly sized for printing on cardstock. For those familiar with Canva, I’ve even included a link to a customizable template, allowing you to effortlessly drag and drop your own photos into the template. Simply switch out my images for yours, print on white or balmy blue cardstock, and let your creativity shine!

Video Tutorial:
Prefer visual guidance? Look no further! Below, you’ll find a video reel demonstrating each step of the crafting process, making it even easier to bring this unique card to life.

Inspiration:
My inspiration for this project came from the talented Quintal Malara – Quinsarte from India. 

Crafting this Cell Phone Message Pull Out card is not just about creating a beautiful piece of art; it’s about infusing your personal touch and love into every detail. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or a novice, I hope this tutorial sparks joy and inspires you to spread happiness one handmade creation at a time.

Happy crafting!

  1. Debra Anderson says

    Do you anticipate doing a you tube video of this masterpiece for us older “visual learners”? It is an amazing card!

    • Thanks so much! Glad you love it and I have good news I DID create video tailored for those who learn visually (aka all of us 😜), situated above the accompanying photos. Additionally, I incorporated images into the step-by-step instructions to further assist visual learners. Enjoy.

  2. Love the cell phone card.

  3. Well that sounded like the cell phone is all I liked. I like them all. Just the cell phone was so unusual. Would love the measurements.

    • I’m thrilled you love it!! I have more than measurements for you. I made step by step photo instructions along with the short video above. Enjoy!

  4. Love the idea of your card. You come up with such amazing ideas and new twists on old ideas. Thank you so much.

  5. Very cute!

  6. I absolutely love this card but can’t seem to get the QR code to work. It says you have to give permission? I have to have someone help me navigate Canva as I’ve never used it before so I would like access for a few days until I can get to my guru.

    • Hi Terry, I’ve provided all the necessary details in the PDF so you can recreate this yourself. It includes the fonts and sizes I used. This should help you make your own version using any program you’re familiar with. The Canva link was primarily for those who prefer using Canva to easily drag and drop their photos, but you don’t need it for this project.
