How to…Make a bendy card
Include a curved panel on your card front to create a shop-counter effect, surrounded by toys and gifts
Create a 17x13cm, white card blank. Score vertically at 1.5cm in from the left-hand side of a 5x13.5cm piece of white card. Cut a tab into the right-hand side. Add doublesided tape to the scored section and attach it to the left-hand side of the card front.
Trim a piece of present-patterned paper to 16x12cm, and another to 4x10cm. Layer both pieces onto slightly larger panels of green card then attach to the card front and the tabbed panel.
Cut a 1.5cm slit in the card front, 3cm in and 3.5cm up from the bottom-right corner, then slip the tab into it. Fussy cut toys then glue to the bottom-right corner.
Attach a fussy-cut Santa to the top of the curved panel. Use sticky foam pads to attach Santa’s arms, leaving his hands free. Trim white paper to 14x2cm, curl it up then adhere the end into Santa’s hands.
