Hello bloggists and welcome!
One of my earliest YouTube projects was a pop-up cube card. I'm fascinated by kinetic and pop-up cards and paper engineering in general, and I was dead pleased to find instructions for this sort of project.
That was almost two years ago. My channel has grown since then and I hope that I've learned something as well. At the time I was only posting once a week and the camera I was using wasn't the best. I wanted to revisit the project to try and make it a bit easier.
The tricky part is getting the elastic that makes it pop into position. The original instructions said to sew it into place but that was fiddly - and also created a weak spot right where you needed strength.
When I made the Baby Shower card, I wondered if the method used to hold the elastic in place would work on the popup cube - and it does!
Here it is in action!
(I've also learned how to make a GIF animation - cool, eh? I will have to stop myself from putting them into every post though!)
Here's the tutorial -
That's it for now, but I'll be back again soon - please do join me!
