Today I taught eight ladies how to create a pop up panel card . Once you've figured out the mecahism for this card its really quite easy !
These are the two we created in class
We figured out that you do not need to use 12 x 12 paper for this card and i have a bit of a tutorial for you but urge you to go to Collette 's you tube because its a great tutorial ! Thanks so much for freely sharing Collette !
Start by cutting a piece of A4 cardstock at 4 inches with the short end to the top of the trimmer . it will measure 4 x 11 11/16
31/2 x 10
3 1/2 x 8
9 1/2 x 1 for belly band .
Fold your card base ( largest piece ) in half and burnish .
Adhere DSP to front of card and two pieces to inside of card.
Take your 10 x 31/2 piece and score at 2 1/2 , 5 and 7 1/2 inches in the landscape position.
Valley , mountain , valley fold this piece
Take your 8 x 3 1/2 piece and score at 1 3/4 down the centre in the portrait position . Then lay it in your trimmer in the landscape position and place a pencil mark at the 2 1/4 mark . Flip and do likewise on the other end.
Line up diagonally in your trimmer and score from pencil mark to pencil mark
Burnish the two long score lines and valley fold them .
Take your diagonal score lines and gently fold into peaks until you have a little house shape.
Line up to the centre placing strong adhesive on the v part on both sides , just a smidgen below the fold line of the card .
Then open out and lay the other piece and close the two side pieces so they meet in the centre, line up with the centre of the base and mark the top square piece and opposite bottom square pieces which is where your adhesive goes , unfold and hey presto you have your pop up mechanism !
