Another version of the Pop Up Presents card I shared yesterday… I am not sure that the photos do this card justice – it is a real WOW in the flesh…
More papers from the NEW Fresh Prints DSP stack. This time in Real Red & Crumb Cake – so more suitable for the males and teens in our life!
You can see the little part-punched pieces more clearly in this colourway – check out the extra embellishments on those little banners in the Glimmer Red– straights, chevrons; and layered banners – I can use any tiny scrap to add layers to my banners …. you never need to throw away a scrap of card or paper again!!!!
Remember just a £45 order will get you this Banner Punch for free….!!!
Here is the detailed imperial version by Lisa Young that I used . But I converted the measurements to a metric version for use in a standard European A6 card...
So for the inner insert - you will need…
Whisper White Cardstock 8” x 140mmW
Scored & Folded at 4”
You can mark & cut as Lisa has - but I used a trimmer to do the cutting – I find that much easier – so the folded edge of the insert is placed LANDSCAPE up to the top horizontal ruler bar of the trimmer , lined up to a measurement and then you use the vertical cutter bar to make the cuts!
A quick tip though – I found that cutting 2/3 times ensured that my trimmer went all the way through the 2 layers of card neatly – though maybe that was just a sign of me needing to replace my blade!!! Going back to repeat when you discover that the blade hasn’t quite cut through makes for a messy cut!!
So for the first cut – line up your folded edge LANDSCAPE on the top ruler bar at 2 cm – locate your blade at 5cm on the cutter bar – and cut up from 5 cm to the top – ie 0
Then at 6cm on the top - cut from 5 cm to 0
Then at 9 1/2cm on the top - cut from 3 1/2cm to 0
Then at 12cm on the top - cut from 2 cm to 0
And a quick pictorial for those of you that prefer a visual.
The paper strips are of course a different size. As Lisa says though – do measure the lengths you need for each section and then trim – no 2 presents were ever the same. For class – I cut my pieces a bit longer so people could then trim to suit the width on their own creation. So these are the measurements with ( hopefully) a bit of overhang….. about 1/2 cm
