Tutorial for Double Pop Out Card

Today I am doing a tutorial for Heather who asked if I would do one for the Double Pop Out card that I made as part of the design team for Crafters Companion using the Popcorn Pals CD-Rom. This card is really easy, but the decorating takes the time. You will need:

Ultimate Pro
7 sheets of A4 card
Backing Paper and Toppers
Popcorn Pals CD-Rom
Paper Trimmer
Martha Stewart Double Border Punch - Infinite Loops

You can make this card any size but for the above I left the length of the card but cut the width to 6", then
using my Ultimate Pro with the longest sides top and bottom I scored at the A4 gatefold line, then turning my card 180 degrees scored the same line again. You need to do this on all 6 pieces of card.

Now taking two pieces of the scored card stick flaps A & B together.

 You need to repeat this until you have 5 pieces of card stuck together in a row.

Now your two remaining pieces need to be stuck to the 3rd and 4th panels from the left. This is quite hard to show so I have done these to panels in a different colour. The easiest way I can explain it is if you start at the first small flap and say that is number one and the other side of that flap is number two, you need to stick your first piece of card onto flap 5 and the second one on flap 8. I really hope that this makes sense but please contact me if it does not make sense to you.

You now need to decorate each panel, then starting with the two middle pieces of card fold them both into the centre and then fold the outer panels towards the centre until it all folds together and looks like a piece of 6 x 6 card. I then add a piece of ribbon to use as a fastening and put my final topper on the front panel. I have tried to include as many photos as possible

Any problems please let me know.
