POP UP V-FOLD TABS AND SLOTS
How to Make Pop Up Cards, Tutorial Level of Difficulty: Medium
Tabs and slots work the same way on a v-fold mechanism as they do on a box (see lesson 5). You can glue the tabs so they are visible, hidden or slotted. You can make the mechanism flatter or taller by sliding the tabs further from, or closer to, the center fold of the card.
Sample 1: Basic V-fold (with visible tabs.) When the card is opened completely the V is flat against the card.
Sample 2: Tabs rotated toward the center of the card. When the card is opened completely the V stands up from the card.
Sample 3: Tabs rotated away from the center of the card. The V fold becomes flat before the card opens completely.
Bonus: Change the angle of the V or try an asymmetrical V-fold.
