Make This Easter Flip Card

Impress everyone with this dynamic Easter Flip Card.  It is simple to make but kids and grown ups will sit and play with this card for a long time.  I made a newer version of this card with gnome bunnies.  You can see it here.

What you need:

      • Very heavy cardstock for the base (purple)
      • Scraps of cardstock (lt blue, dk. blue, yellow)
      • liquid glue
      • tape glue (optional)

Paper Selection

The base card for this card must be very heavy so that the card can flip multiple times.  Use at least 100 lb weight for the base.  It also needs to be double sided because you see the back.  The embellishments can be any weight and can be patterned.  If you use patterned paper, the pattern must be small because the pieces are small.

Cutting the Card
This Easter Flip card uses a print then cut image (the basket).  If you need instructions on Print then Cut, it is included in the There is Nothing to be Scared of video tutorials.  Print it on white, light weight cardstock or whatever is in your printer.  The rest of the card is fairly easy to cut but be careful when you pull the little pieces off, especially the scroll work.  It tears easily.  You can move things around on your mats to cut it quicker.  I have a video that shows you how.

Assembly

Once the base card is cut, re-score the folds with a Popsicle stick. Fold and work the card a few times to male it easier to operate your Easter Flip Card.

Then you want to assemble the embellishments before gluing anything to the card base.  Use liquid glue to glue the flourish to the eggs.  You can use tape glue on everything else, if you would like.  Happy Easter goes on one side of the center box, the basket goes on the other.  Look at the pictures above for help if you need it.

Your Easter Flip Card is done.  Enjoy!
