POP-UP ORIGAMI GREETING CARD – ODE TO AUTUMN THEME

POP-UP ORIGAMI GREETING CARD – This card has a twisting motion that is so amazing to see!  When you open the card a 4-panel folded card twists horizontal from the card and opens up!  When the card is closed, the 4 panels twist to become vertical and flat so the card can close flat!  Pretty amazing eh?!  I wrote down instructions with measurements and all so you can make your own.  The “pop-up” mechanism is simply made up of mountain and valley folds and then folds down to become a house shape.  The paper with the 4 panels is then glued to the pop-up mechanism and voila!  A magic card that you made yourself!  I decorated my card with leaf prints made by rubber stamping real leaves & then water coloring them.  An Ode to Autumn!
