Super quick post from me today as I really should be doing a million other things and I just had a freak out moment when I just found out the last hour an half of computer crunching was wasted when the colouring video I was processing had the WRONG settings!! argh! Yes the frustration!
Anyhow, I was inspired the other day when I came across THIS video. You have probably all seen it, and yes I have seen heaps of them before but it was the ‘flowers’ that got me.
And well I couldn’t get it out of my head! I wanted to make a pop up card like these. LOL
So when I should have been doing other stuff I just couldn’t help today (well it is Sunday… that’s what I kept telling myself) I decided I had to design up my own.
It closes flat!!
And pops right up!
OK I know it isn’t all pretty, AND I know it isn’t as exciting as the ones you just saw in the video. But I was just trying to wrap my brain around it. Have to start somewhere!! hehe
So I thought you might like the template so you can play too! Which is why I am quickly creating this post before I have to send my machine churning through that video again!
The card base needs to be quite big to accommodate the height of the gazebo once it lays flat. I also recommend using a stiff cardboard as my paper tests were really flimsy.
I best run along and get this video happening again. Let me know what you think of the gazebo!!
