Video Tutorial | Birthday Flip Flap Card + Template & Instructions (for Download)

Hello everyone,

I am one day late in posting this, but believe me, the rains have not been helpful :( Anyway, I am here now and today, I have for you a Flip Flap Card with a video on how I made it. I've covered most of the steps on video, but for parts I haven't covered, I have drawn a template and there's a document with all the measurements and steps to create this.

This was made in 2014 for one of the students at the Coaching Classes where I taught. Here's what the card looks like.

I've used Patterned Papers from Fancy Pants Designs' As You Wish 6 x 6 Paper Pad. I loved the Brown, Yellow, Blue, and Orange combination.

The die cuts are from Simple Stories' Good Day Sunshine Collection.

I added some cute buttons, some fussy cut stars and lots of stickles glitter :)

Inside, I made a small window that could be lifted to read the message underneath. Now that I think about it, I think I could have added acetate under the window frame and given it an actual window-like look. Maybe next time.

Here's a closer look at the inside flaps.

And here's the back of the card.

Now for the video! Watch how I made the card, below :)

Measurements and other details to make a similar card

As I said earlier, I've created a document with all the measurements and steps on how I made this card. I've also created a template for the card base and the window, and you can use that to recreate this card or create a similar one.

All of these documents are available at the Resource Library. If you're on my subscriber list, you'd have already received the access details. If not, enter your e-mail address below to receive those details immediately. :)
