Tips tricks and techniques Tuesday Party Puffins

 Today I'm  sharing a super simple technique for a fun card that has a hidden surprise! Of course the card features the Party Puffins but I have also used one of the pattern papers from a fantastic pack that is exclusively available with a qualifying order from Stampin' Up!. Called Pattern Party it is one that will certainly be popping up in future projects!!

The card starts with a simple piece of patterned paper and a simple image from the Party Puffins stamps. Aren't  the colours in the paper cheerful 😀?

Now the fun really begins when the card is opened....

The puffins are fussy cut out and set upon my super simple pop up mechanism.  The mechanism is so easy to create. It is a simple strip of card scored into 4 . The size of the strip dictates the stand stands out into the card it's self .

For today's card I have made 2 pop up stands.  One is a strip of card 10cm x 2.5cm scored at 2.5cm, 5cm and 7.5cm to create a stand for the larger puffin. The smaller puffin is on a stand made from a strip measuring 8cm x 2cm scored at 2cm, 4cm and 6cm.

You can create you strip any length and width but once scored should like this....

Now to affix it into your card all you have to do is reinforce the folds by folding them. Next fold the piece in half and offer it up to the fold of your card base. Make sure that the open ends are to the fold . In the picture below I have marked where to apply adhesive.

Once you've applied the ashesive to the tab carefully close the cards sandwiching it into the card then do the same on the other side see below.

Once opened you have your pop up stand!!

How easy is that??? 😀 it opens the door to lots of fun wow cards!! 

All in all I had great fun making this project and hope you like it as much as I do 😁
