Pop Up card Making Tip

Pop Up card Making
Pop Up card Santa
Pop Up card making is fun and not that complicated once you master a few tricks.Sharing a small tip or trick to make a pop up card more gorgeous !
This Santa Claus Card is a recycled card. The Santa on the front of the card has been pieced together from paper scraps ,felt and  tissue paper!

Pop Up card Santa
I made Santa Claus pop up from a chimney on the inside of the Pop Up Card.
Pop Up card Santa
I recycled a Santa Claus image to create my pop up card.
Pop Up card Santa
The simplest way to make an image pop up in a vertical V fashion is by folding it in half  and folding the lower part to form glue tabs.In the Santa Claus image shown ,the black dotted line would be mountain folded and the white dotted lines mountain or valley folded depending on whether you want the lower parts which will also form glue tabs hidden or visible
Pop Up card Making
The problem with this simple pop up card construction is it would make the central fold line run through Santa's face and poor Santa would look a bit cramped!
I am sharing a simple tip to make Santa or any other similar image look more gorgeous in your pop up card 
Pop Up card Santa
Decide on your central fold line [shown as a black dotted line] but dont crease it just yet.
Use a craft knife or scissors to cut along one side of the face to reach the central fold line [shown by the dotted white line]
If you want you can also avoid the central crease in another part of the image [as I have done here with Santa's belt]by using the craft knife to cut around to meet the central fold -- [Dotted white line]
Now score and mountain fold your central fold [ black dotted line], valley fold the lower part and glue the lower part .You have a fun Santa Pop Up card!
