Cutting Out the Card
Cutting this card is fairly simple. THe assembly is more difficult. The dark cut ot frames are optional, but I think it adds a little class to this card.
The fishing picture can be changed to suit your dad or you can put a picture of him in this spot.
Assembling this card
As mentioned earlier this card is a little tricky to assemble. First, the easy parts, glue the covers and oval frames to the appropriate parts of the base card. Make sure you line up the ovals. Each cover piece will only fit properly to one of the base pieces.
Before starting to glue the base card together, re-crease all the folds. Then glue the piece with no cover and the small 1/4 inch crease to the back of the piece with the two ovals only at the small area. See the picture below.
Next Glue the piece with the one oval to the back of other side of the piece with two ovals making sure to line up the ovals.
Fold the smaller section over to behind the other oval. It won’t cover that second oval. Then fold the back of the card over with the small section in between the parts of the card.
Put glue between the back of the card and the ovals, but do not go past the ovals. This helps hold the card together but does not impede the “slider.”
Glue the two pictures to the card inside the ovals. You can see them on the above pictures. Press hard to seal all the glue. Lastly, work the card a few times to make sure that everything is lined up properly. During opening one picture should slide over the other covering it up.
Yor’re Father’s Day Peek a Boo Card is done. Enjoy!
