Good Morning Ladies,
I have at last managed to finish and upload the tutorial for making these fantastic 'Twist & Pop' cards, they are so fun to receive and with this simple method they are really easy to make. I tried several different methods, some were so complicated you almost needed a degree in maths. I really enjoyed making this version, it makes it more exciting knowing how excited the recipient will feel when they pop in open!!
I will add the important measurements below, then leave you to watch the tutorial video to show putting the card together.
You will need 3 pieces of card to start this card .....
First piece measures 10 x 4 inches
Second piece. 10 x 3 1/2 inches
Third piece. 8 x 3 1/2 inches
Take the First piece (A4 x 4)
Score in half to create your front and back cover of the card.
Take the second piece
Score at 2 1/2 , 5 , 7 1)2 inches , then fold Valley, mountain, valley this gives you 4 panels to decorate. (Part of card that 'pops' out.
Take the Third piece (8 X3 1/2)
With short side at top of score board, score down the length of the card at 1 3/4 inch
Then make a small pencil mark at 2 1/4 & 5 3/4 inch, rotate card around and repeat on other side. So you have 4 marks.
Take your piece of card and line 2 opposite marks up along one of the grooves on your score board (I always mark one with a Sharpie so I know I am in same groove)
Line up marks along groove and score the first part of the 'X' , rotate to line up the other two marks and score again, you should now have an X, burnish all score lines well.
This is how it should look after you have burnished your score lines.
Put your fingers by those pencil marks and gently push so that the long score line goes in like a valley fold, bringing those two triangles down to form an arrow shape.
Burnish the folds well and this is the hardest part finished. Now you can follow video to see it happen in real time, it's easier to see the final fold that way too.
I hope you find it easy enough to follow, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
I can't wait to see your Twist and Pop cards, so please email me them to share .
Have a lovely day,
Love and Hugs
