POP UP BOOK CARD

GREETINGS FELLOW CARD MAKERS…

 DAWN’S POP UP BOOK CARD.. THIS CARD GOT ME SO EXCITED… my youngest granddaughter is turning 21 the end of this month and I just thought how cute would this card be with two photos for the book pages..one of her as little girl and one of her now…I hope to get it done in time… but you can use stamp images or whatever you want for the book pages…..I have to measure it but I think you could even do this as a mini desk type calendar with the calendar pages on the right side of the book and an image or postage stamp on the left side…. I need to check the measurements of the tiny calendars…where you tear a page a day off..( impress cards and crafts).

Front Dawn’s pop up book card

Inside pop up book card

It’s hard to see in the green but there is a about a ½ in that allows the book to part to sorta pop out rather then up.. in any case you have the measurements to use to make the little pages for the inside of the card…you can use your stamps or you can use photos which ever you have or whatever very you want…

I did notice when I was looking at my page I printed with her measurements …there was no measurement listed for the what I am calling the liner (inside) card which is the green.

So here are the measurements as well as the scoring numbers that you will only find on the video and here on my blog…so I am calling this my HINT: SO the liner (green ) is cut at 4 x 8..then put on trimmer the 4 inch width at and place it at 1″ then cut from 1″ down to 7″…then flip the card over again with 4 ” width and repeat …cut at 1″ in and then start at 1″ and cut down to 7″…

Next flip the card so that you are at the 8″ width and from the left hand end score at 1″ just between the cut lines not all the way across…then again at 1 ½ inch again between cut lines …NOW JUST FROM TOP TO THE CUT LINE SCORE AT 2 ½ AND REPEAT THAT AT THE BOTTOM FROM THE BOTTOM UP TO THE CUT LINE NOT ALL THE WAY ACROSS.

SCORE ALL THE WAY ACROSS AT 4 ” AND FLIP THE CARD OVER AND AND REPEAT SCORES..from the end 1″. And then 1 ½ inch inside the cut lines…and the outside cut lines from top down to cut line at 2 ½ and also from bottom up to cut line at 2 ½ . Now you have all your score lines set so you can begin folding with the valley then mountain on the ends of the book..and valley in the center of the book then fold the card in half to get other folds in place so that booklet pops out.  Then use her video to see about gluing the card in rather than tape just because it may get opened and closed a lot and the glue will hold better than the tap…..ok that should help and I printed the first two pages of he post and then wrote these measurements on my print out so I would have them when I wanted to make the card…

I am certain that she just forgot to list that liner card size due to just getting back from THAILAND and probably she has jet lag… I know I would … but I really though this card was extra cute and would work great for birthdays….if you have younger and current photos…lol… otherwise its great with sentiments or image stamps… balloons and cake etc.

Ok think that is all for now so enjoy.  AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY…wire headed cyber toad..aka kath
