you can get 3 cards out of one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 CS.- This is the inside of the finished card on the right. If you open and close the card really fast, he looks like he is clapping!
I have made this card with many different sizes but the basics of the mechanism is the same.
The base of this card is 11x smidgen more than 2 8/10 inches (1/3 of the 8 1/2) folded at 5 1/2 inch on the 11 inch side. (Long ways)
I added red gloves (hand cut from 2x2 piece of red carstock to fit) and glued it as shown to the 2 outer rectangle corners.
I attached money by putting on a little bit of tombow tape onto the wrist area of the gloves while it was flat and the money folds into the popup. It was a fun way of giving money for Christmas.
When you put the card on the tape it floats like this and looks like the snowman is holding it out.
I took some DSP 6 1/2 x 5 1/2 - you can get 4 sheets out of a 12x12 paper if you cut it carefully - score it at 3 inches and at 6 inches along the 6 1/2 side and 1/2 inch along the 5 1/2 side.-cut out the corner and one of the 1/2 inch tabs as shown on the right and then punch the top with the envelope punch to make a little groove to complete the package.
