How To:

Cut four pieces of white card measuring 6″ x 6″. Score all four pieces at 3″, flip 90 degrees and score again at 3″. Score diagonally once.

Turn the card so that the diagonal is running from top left to bottom right. On the bottom left 3″ square, score at 2.5″

Cut away the bottom left panel, to the 2.5″ scoreline, and make a tab by tapering in the edges.

Cut the angles to the same angle of the scoreline. I like to nick a little piece out of the very corner, for a neater fold.

Fold the diagonals mountain and the vertical/horizontal lines valley. Crease with a bone folder.

Apply glue or double sided tape to the inside of the 0.5″ tab and adhere to the outside of the panel beside it.

Ensure the tab isn’t overlapping the diagonal scoreline. If it is, just trim it away with a scissors.

Stamp, colour and cut out the dragons using the coordinating dies. If you don’t have the dies, you can fussy cut around each one.

Adhere each of the smaller circles to the larger ones and then, using 3D foam, stick a dragon on each one. Stamp and cut out the sentiment, either with a paper trimmer or die.

Use the ribbon to tie the card closed, booklet style, and to keep the card open by tying the back and front together. Ensure the centre of each section is pinched up slightly so that the card will spin when pushed.
