Folding card

Hi, welcome back! 

Today is the birthday of my little guy and I've made him a 'never ending' card!  He likes to fold paper, a lot ... a picture is worth a thousand words, I'll show you what he made for me for Mother's day, and you'll see what I mean.

Mother's Day 2012

He used lined writing paper, torn, folded, coloured and assembled to make this 'pointed sphere'!  So I made this card for him.

'Front' of card

after open vertically

flip horizontally
flip veritcally, flip again you're back to the 'front', and you start over...

open flag to reveal secret messages

view of half open card

This card is really fun because you could just flip and flip and flip; thus the name.  If you want to make a 'never ending' card, just so a search on the web.  There are many sites/blogs that provide instructions of the 'how to'.

Have a wonderful day!

Very pretty Cindy. Love the folds on that card. Neat way of adding movement, interaction to your card! Thank you for leaving a sweet comment on my Moxie Fab post. :o)

14 isn't "little", Cindy! But he will always be your little one, eh? He did a great job on Mother's Day. Your interactive card for him is just great - know he loved it. Nice job, both of you.
