We’ve got another awesome DT Thursday project from Sandiebella for you today! Enjoy!
Twist and Pop Card
Scoring board & bone folder
Ruler & pencil
1 piece @ 4.25″ x 11″. Fold in half to create A2 card base.
1 piece @ 3.5″ x 8″
1 piece @ 3.5″ x 11″
1 piece @ 4″ x 5.25″
2 pieces @ 4″ x 5.25″
4 pieces @ 2.5″x 3.25″
1 piece @ 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
To make the twist and pop mechanism, take the 3.5″ x 8″ piece of white card and score down the middle at 1.75″, on the 3.5″ side.
Measure in 2″ from each end, on both sides of the card piece. Mark with a pencil.
Score diagonally to create a X
Fold and crease all score lines, folding both ways to create flexibility in the card.
With the card folded along the 1.75″ line, press in the side and fold the side section back. Repeat for the other side to create piece as shown. Set aside.
To make the inside focal piece, take the 3.5″ x 11″ piece of card and score at 2.75″, 5.5″ and 8.25″
Glue down the 2 inside panels of patterned paper.
Apply wet glue or DS tape to one side of the pop up mechanism as shown and adhere to the card base, ensuring the point is lined up with the centre marking.
When you open up the card, it should look like this.
Stamp the image onto white card and cut out with a circle die, before colouring.
Adhere the circles to the card front using 3D foam tape. Embellish as desired.
