Made these at a stamp club for local demos our make & take this month.
Folded 4 Ό x 5 1/2 card
4 x 5 1/4 cardstock in another color for the flipper
2 1/2 x 5 cardstock for the tag
Stamped and layered image at least 2 1/2 wide - it must be wider than the flipper.
Images/greetings for the surprise opening on the front of the card
Optional - images/greetings for the tag. We did not do this at the make and take, but I thought it is more fun to have one there, too.
1/4 or 1/2 circle cutter
Ribbon or fiber
Red liner or double stick tape
Corner rounder or tag corner punch
Stamp a background on the a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of cardstock. This will be your flipper.
On back of this stamped piece of cardstock, draw lines with a pencil as follows
1 from each side
3/4 from the bottom
1 1/4 from the top - I draw a dotted line to remind me to fold, NOT cut.
Cut the RECTANGLE that is formed by these lines - sides and bottom only - do NOT cut across to the edges of the card. The cut rectangle is your flipper.
Score top line.
Apply scotch tape along the top of the score line ( the side away from the flipper section) and past the cuts to help strengthen the card
On the flipper you just made, score 5/8 from the bottom.
Then score halfway between these two scorelines.
The top and bottom are valley folds the middle is a mountain fold.
Now your need the 2 1/2 x 5 cardstock. Punch top two corners with tag corner punch or corner rounder.
On the BACK of your flipper, apply tape to the bottom 5/8 section. Attach the bottom of the tag so that it is lined up with the bottom of the flipper.
Turn the piece around and apply tape to the FRONT of the flipper between the 5/8 fold and the middle fold - keeping it away from the folds.
Attach the your stamped image to this section. Your flipper is done.
Apply tape to the side and bottom edges of the flipper layer, not the flipper.
Attach to the card front.
Pull the tag out. Stamp images on the front opening and tag.
Punch a half circle in the middle of the top of the card front, for a thumbhole.
Punch a small hole at the top of the tag, and add fibers or ribbon.
