Hey everyone! It’s the drea! Welcome back! It is not the 14th yet so I have another Valentine’s day themed video for you. If you thought the I ♥ U pop up card we made last time was cool you’re going to love the magic or never ending card we’ll be making today. It is extremely easy to make so lets just get into the video! The things you’ll need are: construction paper you can either use two colors or just one ruler, pencil scissors, scoring tool (like an empty mechanical pencil or a small dotting tool) and glue or double sided tape. I’ll be using a glue stick.Lets begin! Start by measuring and cutting out 4 15cm by 7.5 cm rectangles of paper. If you’re using two different colors of paper cut 2 from each color to make 4. Put 3 rectangles aside and leave one to work on. Place the rectangle in a standing vertical position and with your ruler mark and score a horizontal line 3.75 cm away from the top edge and 3.75 cm away from the bottom edge. Then fold and crease both of these lines. It’s best if you crease them forward and backward. It should look something like this. Repeat to the other 3 rectangles. Now take a rectangle and place it vertically once more with your ruler mark a vertical line at 3.75cm running from the top edge to the top crease mark and at the bottom running from the bottom edge to the bottom crease mark.It should look something like this. Repeat on the other rectangle of the same color. Once that’s done place both rectangles vertically next to eachother, make sure they’re aligned and leave a tiny gap in between them, this separation should be a small one but it still must be there or else it’ll be difficult to open the letter. Add glue or double sided tape on the top 2 outer squares. take another rectangle which now should be of a different color and glue it horizontally on top of the 2 vertical ones. It should be aligned with the top edge. Press down firmly to make sure it’s well secured, and repeat at the bottom, add glue or double sided tape on the bottom 2 outer squares. Take the last rectangle, and glue it horizontally on top, it should be aligned with the bottom edge.This way there’s a small gap between these two rectangles as well. Press down firmly to make sure it’s well secured. And it should look something like this. At this point you can go back and erase the undesired pencil marks. Now open the letter and crease down on the folds. If there’s any excess paper sticking out
anywhere use your scissors to trim it off. Open the letter again and crease down on the folds once more. If the paper happens to overlap use your scissors to trim a bit of the edge off so it doesn’t overlap anymore, continue opening the letter making sure to crease the folds and checking that no excess paper sticks out and the paper doesn’t overlap. Meanwhile fixing it if does. At the end the letter must open without any problem. I think this is a good size but if you want to make it bigger you can use 20cm by 10cm rectangles, mark the horizontal line 5cm away from the top and bottom edge and finally mark the last vertical lines at 5cm to make the outer squares.Repeat the process as normal. And you’re done! Write your message and decorate to your heart’s desire and it’s sure to make an awesome letter. I hope you liked this idea did please don’t forget to give it a thumbs up.
