How to…Make a bendy card

Papercraft Inspirations - - PRINTABLES -

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.
