Clare’s hints & tips
Follow Clare’s helpful hints and advice to master these fun corner pop-up cards
Take your time when measuring and scoring the card to ensure that all of the folds line up neatly. Use a bone folder to get crisp lines, and practise the folds for these designs with some scrap card before making your base.
Don’t use card that is too thick for your base, or it will be very bulky, especially after you add the panels and decorate it.
Avoid adding too many raised embellishments inside the card, as they might get in the way of the folds. Try to keep the design inside of the card fairly flat.
Use a Velcro dot on the corner of the open folding square if you would like your card to stand straight when open.
If you don’t want to write a message inside your base, add a square of white card to the back to create space for a message.
You can decorate the front of these pop-up cards in any way you choose, but you might prefer to keep them fairly simple, as there’s quite a lot going on inside!
Keep the front of your cards simple to complement the busy insides
