Having see the idea of a never-ending card on Wild Daffodils’ blog – HERE I had thought that I would like to try it.
Recently I needed a card for a Crafty Coffee friend’s birthday. She makes beautiful things out of many pieces of origami paper so I thought that she would appreciate that sort of card. (This appears to be called modular origami and the constructs referred to as Sonobe Polyhedra.)
I didn’t have much time but I managed to find some stickers in a shop when on the way to the cinema and thought my highlighter and silver pens could be useful. I made a demo model in paper to start with and scribbled on it as I developed my ideas. The final card was made with pieces of cut down postcard 3×6 inches as I had plain postcard sized pieces and it meant all the pieces could be the same shape.
Here is the first side which opens up to show Then lifting top and bottom gives which in turn opens to. If you peep through the gap in this side I think you can see the first side showing and if you open the card up top and bottom you are back at the beginning, all ready to start again.
I may have gone a bit overboard with the hearts but apart from the stars, which were an afterthought, they were all I could buy at the time.
I tried to make the card work both ways up as you can see.
The fact that the third one was in the shape of a cross gave me some ideas for Easter cards. So look out here come next Lent.
