Here we are Wednesday’s WOW! #50. I really didn’t even consider I would get to that number when I first started just this year. How fun it has been sharing fun projects and videos with you. Have you enjoyed them?? Today for #50 I have a special project that I have been sitting on for a few weeks waiting to share with you – and Today is the day! And since it is such a big milestone I thought I would have a little giveaway on my blog. It’s been a while since I have done that so be sure to read all the details below.
So today’s project is … A Pyramid Card. Have you made one of these before. I thought it would be fun to make one and share it with you.
This is the front view.
This is the back view.
I have put together a video for you and have some photos too below.
Apologies in advance for the video quality. I am working on that. 😉
CREATE YOUR OWN PYRAMID CARD
The Pyramid card can be made to any size. The principles to make them are the same. Work out the approximate height you would like and the size of the card squares will be approximately three-quarters of that height.
Tutorial and measurements for the Pyramid card above.
Cut 3 squares of card to 10.5 cm (Just over 4”).
Cut 2 squares of Designer Series Paper (DSP) slightly smaller than is 4mm or 1/8”. Squares for this one would be 10.1cm or 4”).
1) Score each card piece diagonally once. Fold on the scored line.
2) Cut both squares of DSP in half diagonally. Flip one triangle over to use the opposite pattern. You may choose to use a completely different piece of DSP for a different pattern choice. You may choose to have each piece the same. Adhere the DSP triangles onto one panel of each card
3) (NB: In these photos I didn’t adhere the Designer Series Paper before assembling). Position one of the squares behind another square underneath the other square. Before applying adhesive, check the position so you only apply adhesive to where it is needed. Repeat this for each card piece.
Be careful where you place the adhesive as you won’t want to place it all over your card.
4) You can choose to adhere the third square to the first square to assemble it permanently or you can add a Velcro dot to the edge piece, or add ribbon to tie it together so it can come apart to lay flat for posting.
– Decorate your Pyramid card as you like.
