Floral Waterfall Card

Hi Everyone!,
I would like to share this Floral Waterfall Card. I also made my first video today. It’s only a 10 second clip, but it shows how this Waterfall Card flips when the handle is pulled. Sorry if the video is grainy, I don’t have a good quality camera yet!

Here is the waterfall card I made:

You can see the shimmer of the patterned paper better in this picture:

Here is the video of the flipping motion of this Waterfall card:

I used patterned paper, die cuts, a frame embellishment and ribbon.

This is the same paper I used to make the 4 Drawer Box Card Tutorial
.

Here is a walk thru of this Waterfall Card:

I cut 5 Circles with Circle Dies. My first idea was to make 5 different styles of wreaths, but I didn’t have the time to make 5 different wreaths, so I covered the holes with the decorative paper. (I cut the 5 circles but I only used 4 of them because I used a frame embellishment instead of one of the circles).

I cut a strip of white card stock paper 11 inches long and 1 inch wide. I folded it in half.

I flipped the paper so the fold crease was facing down. I used a ruler and a pencil to mark 5 lines 1.5 cm apart, beginning at the fold. I only did this to one side of the fold.

Here is an example of the lines I made:

I used a ruler to fold each line, to match the fold of the center.

I did this to every line except the last line:

I folded the the strip of paper in half

I used double sided tape and used it on the first rectangle.

I attached the edge of the first circle on the double sided tape – just under the fold line, not over.

Then I put double sided tape on the next rectangle, and attached another circle.

I did this with all of the circles:

I flipped the strip of paper and the attached circles over

I glued a rectangle piece of paper to the end of the strip where the circles were attached.

Then I put double sided tape on the ends of the rectangle piece of paper. **I did NOT use the double sided tape to the back of the strip** The flipping doesn’t work if that part is glued to the card!

I folded the strip in half again (making sure that no part of the strip touched the adhesive of the double sided tape on the rectangle. I attached the rectangle to the card.

This is what it looked like under the circles when the rectangle was attached. ***Pulling the 2nd strip will make the circles flip.***

I tested to make sure the flip motion works by pulling out the 2nd strip under the circles.

I decorated the rest of the card and it was finished!

Here is the video of the flipping motion of the finished card:
