Pop Up Banner Card

Pop Up Birthday Card
This is a simple pop up  card to make.It is ideal to pop up the sentiment in your greeting card. You don't need templates and that is the fun part of this technique I am going to show you as you can tailor it to suit the card you are making.

1.Cut a piece of card to form the base of your Banner.
Shape:It can be any shape square,rectangle,trapezium.
Width: Wide enough to hold your Banner  + can be as wide as your card
Height:The height of the folded base + the pole piece of the banner + Banner height should be such that the whole mechanism fits in your folded card.Go ahead and experiment a little here.
2.Fold the base in half

4.This is how the cut out top looks like

5.Fold up 0.5 to 1cm of both ends of the base piece
6.Cut the pole piece width to easily fit through the slot in the top of the base piece.Its length should be long enough to pop out of the folded base piece but not too long as to go out of the folded card.
