flying by pop up box

Morning all I have been asked to blog this pop box card I made by a couple of friends so here it is - a bit belated but my blogger fell out with me and I got so fed up and trying to make it play I decided to leave it alone to sulk for a few days - but I think it must have got over whatever was upsetting it cos it seems to be playing to day - long may it continue.
Anyway here's my instructions - now I can't take the credit as I was given a link to a youtube video but this is my version of things - they used a piece of scrapbook so I adapted it to suit myself!

Before I get into the workings I should say that all the stamps are from Clarity and you will see further down that every surface has been covered - a proper labour of love but I did enjoy making it .

I started with an a3 piece of card and used 10cm measurements but you could use a4 or scrapbook and use 7cm measurements ... basically you need to score 4 sides and leave a bit for a flap - hence the A3 4 x 10 leaves 2 cm for a flap to stick.

lay it landscape and score at 10, 20, 30 and 40
turn 90 degrees and score along the first three sections at 10 cm. LEAVE THE SECTION NEXT TO THE FLAP UNSCORED so that it forms the back of the project that doesn't fold over

Cut across at 20 cm and then discard the top bit of the flap, and cut down the score lines at 10, 20 and 30

 the section that you cut off is now used to form the sections inside so cut on the solid lines and discard the scribble out bits.

fold on the score lines and stick as shown

Butt one piece up to the front and one piece up to the back

These sections are used to stick your bits on.

Decorate all sides and be careful about the sticky out bits as you want it to fold flat - hence no bottom to it

Hope you can follow what I have done - give it a go I had great fun .

by the way I made all the panels at 9cm square and the mats and 9.5cm square.
