Pop-out Card Making!

I enjoy making greetings cards for different occasions, but sometimes find it difficult thinking of new, creative designs. So, I decided to try my hand at pop-out card making, as they always look so bold and exciting!

I used a craft manual in order to understand how the folding system needed to work, however I soon found that it was best to half follow the instructions and half make it up as I went along. Experimenting allows you to find what works best for you; you may even find that books and online instructions do not give you the look you desire anyway.

It took me lots of refolding and changing the lengths of the cuts before it folded down flat and I was happy with how it looked.  I was pleased with how it turned out in the end, however next time I must make some alterations as part of the pop out sticks out of the card slightly when it is closed. I look forward to trying out another pop-out soon! 🙂
