Action 2

The next step is to make the card by itself with the uncomplicated pop-up mechanism.

To do this, first fold your white piece of letter sized card inventory or paper into 50 %.

Transform your paper so that the crease is along the base and then attract two vertical traces, around 4cm extensive from the creased edge.

Our two strains beneath are roughly 5cm (while this does not definitely make any difference, as lengthy as the hole amongst the two strains isn’t broader than the sunshine photo).
