Bendi Card Step by Step Tutorial
Embellishments of choice
Step by Step Guide:
Cut three pieces of white card:
One @ 5.5″ x 2.75″ (right panel)
Score both smaller pieces at 0.5″ on one side
On the opposite side to the scoreline, measure in 0.25″, and trace a line
Repeat for the other front panel.
On the 5.5″ square, measure across to 4″ and trace a line from top to bottom
On the left panel, measure across 2″ and trace a line from top to bottom.
Take the left panel and lay it on top of the back panel, lining up the the pencil lines. On the trace line on the back section, mark where the the top and bottom of the tab is, with your pencil.
Place the right panel on top of the left panel, and again, on the bottom trace line, mark where the tab is
Using a craft knife, make a slit between the 2 pencil marks you just did. Repeat on the back panel.
Fold the 0.5″ score lines and apply strong adhesive
Adhere the 0.5″ section to the underneath of the back panel.
Fold the left panel in and insert the tab where you made the slit in the back panel.
Repeat for the right panel, inserting the tab into the slit you made on the left panel.
Cut 4 pieces of white card:
Adhere the 5.25″ panel to the inside back of the card and add a layer of patterned paper slightly smaller.
Turn the card over and, using the existing slit as a guide, cut through the card and paper layers so you can insert the tab.
Repeat for the left and right panels. Adhere the 5.5″ square of card to the back to reinforce it. This will complete the card structure.
Adhere the image to the front right panel and the sentiment on the inside back.
Decorate as desired.
