Fun Fold Friday #14 - Pull Tab Flip Card Using Birthday Bonanza


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Week 14 of Fun Fold Friday. This week I have made a Pull Tab Flip Card and it's easier than you might think. I chose the Birthday Bonanza suite of products because I just love the cute animals but the koala is my favourite.  There is also a video tutorial on my YouTube channel, just click the link below:

Materials

1 piece of card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" (I chose Bermuda Bay)
2 pieces of whisper white card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of dsp 3 5/8" x 5 3/8" and a 7/8" strip for the inside (Birthday Bonanza)
1 strip of Bermuda Bay 6 1/4" x 2"
1 squares of Bermuda Bay approx 2 5/8
1 each squares Bermuda Bay and whisper white approx 2 1/8"
1 square of whisper white approx 1 5/8"
Scrap of whisper white for the koala
Bermuda Bay ink
Basic Gray ink
Memento Black ink
Stitched Square dies
Scrap of Daffodil Delight ruched ribbon for the pull
Delightful tag topper punch
Classic label punch
Bonanza dies
Bonanza Buddies stamp set
Multipurpose adhesive
Dimensionals
Tear and tape

Instructions


Score the large piece of bermuda bay at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Stamp a sentiment on one of the larger pieces of whisper white for the inside of the card and adhere the strip of dsp along the bottom.  Add to the inside of the card.

Adhere the other large piece of whisper white to the card front.

Die cut the 4 stitched square pieces for the front mechanism and stamp sentiments on the two whisper white ones. Then add these to the two remaining bermuda bay squares with adhesive.

For the pull strip, score the strip on the long side at 2" and 2 1/4" and then fold and burnish.  Use the detailed tag punch on the end of the longer section of this strip.

To make the hole for the mechanism to go through, centre the classic label punch along one of the longer sides and punch, this will leave the label shape in the middle(ish) of the dsp layer.

With the strip of bermuda bay lay flat on the table with the shorter end on the top, add two pieces of tear tape to the short section and one piece in between the two score lines.  Stick the smaller of the two bermuda bay squares centrally over this section and then add the larger one, over the top but attaching it to the strip of tear tape in between the  score lines.

Feed this section through the hole in the centre of the dsp and arrange the top square so that it sits centrally on the card.  Add a piece of tear tape to the back of the smaller bermuda bay square and when you have the whole thing situated centrally press down and stick the smaller section to the dsp.

Now add dimensionals to the back of the dsp layer but not too close to the mechanism and add it to the card front leaving a border all the way around the edges.

Stamp the koala on the scrap of whisper white and then die cut him out (or fussy cut) and add him to the front square with dimensionals.

Here is another version that I made on the video

I hope that you like it and will give it a try.
