Tip Template Tuesday: Cylindrical Pop-up

Cylindrical Pop-up

Start with a piece of card-stock 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" and the following template. Cut on the solid lines; Score on the dashed lines.

Decorate the front as desired. I stamped mine with a Snag'Ems stamp and colored with COPIC markers.

Fold on the score lines, and then add strong adhesive to the tabs as shown. (This mechanism is upside-down from the way it will be inserted into the card.)

Insert the mechanism into a pre-folded card that has been cut down to fit inside a standard card with a small border, placing the small tab side about 3/4" from the fold, but ensuring that the other side doesn't extend beyond the edge of the card. The long tabs should extend UNDER the mechanism and toward the left of the card.

Next, pull on the long tabs until the cylinder pops up as much as desired. Keeping the cylinder popped up, adhere the ends of the long tabs to the inside of the card.

Carefully close the card so that the long tabs fold as the cylinder slides back flat. Crease on those folds. With the card again opened, hand-draw the mug's handle.

Insert the smaller card into the standard sized card and decorate the left inside as desired, being careful not to cover beyond the fold in the long tabs.

Decorate the front of the card as desired.

Materials I used include:
COPIC Ciao Markers Y06, Y25, YR16, R27, E00, E11, E15
Paper and card-stock: by Bazzil and K&Co.
Stamps: "Encouraging Words" by Stampendous, "You make me smile all over" by Inkadinkadoo (modified by hand-writing word "hot"), and "three leaves" Snag'em Stamps by Imaginisce.
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellishments: 3 square mini brads, 12" of brown ribbon
Other: black marker, atc gun, strong double-sided tape

Hope you will give the template a try!
