Free-standing Pop-up Cards

Now I know some of you have been waiting ever-so-patiently for this, so here we go!

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, we made these cards at a workshop on Friday night and I promised the ladies who attended that I would put them on the blog with all the measurements.

I have adapted THIS tutorial on to work with our A4 paper and metric measurements. When folded up it fits into our standard C6 envelopes!

So the new measurements are:

Base = 1/2 A4 sheet cut lengthways (29.7cm x 10.5cm)
Tag = 13.5cm x 6.5cm
Tag mat = 14cm x 7cm

Score base at = 2.4, 7.4, 9.8, 14.8, 19.8, 22.2, 27.2

For anyone who hasn't had a go at making these yet, just follow the tutorial on Splitcoast (see link above) but change the measurements to those I have provided just here.

If you are wondering about the recipe for the cards in this post, here they are:

Thanks Bec for showing us how to make these, and for converting them to fit to A4! Also for the lovely one that I got to keep xo
I showed some of my ladies who come to my workshops and they can't wait for me to teach it to them!
