2010-01-09 Tutorial on Canary butterfly pop-up


Here is one way to use up some more of the canary colored card stock…make a tutorial with it.

These are the instructions on how to score and fold THIS CARD.

Start with a piece of card stock that measures 8 1/2 x 5 1/2″

Score at 2 1/8″ and again at 4 1/4″

Next make the score’s for the pop up that will be in the middle of the card.

On the center fold score (4 1/2″) measure 1 1/2″ HORIZONTALLY to the left of center and put a small pencil mark.
Now from the same center line measure 1 1/2″ HORIZONTALLY to the right, placing another small pencil mark.
Now on the center measure 1 1/2″ VERTICALLY down from the top edge and right on the center line, placing a pencil mark.

Using your score tools, add two score marks as shown to form a triangle.

Fold the card in half to make a standard greeting card then reopen.
push the center fold forward and pinch and hold the other triangle creases to create a V fold as pictured.

    Beautiful cards, I love them! I have enjoyed making cards for the past 19 years. I tried to give it up once but I can’t seem to go very long without paper crafting. I love it too much!
