Sliceform Card Stand

Here's how to make the frame stand for the sliceform heart as shown in my Valentine's Day post.

The sliceform heart can be purchased from Rich at Creative Pop Ups. (Regrettably, it's not a free file anymore.)

However, I now have a free file for a solid sliceform heart here.

The finished dimensions of the frame are: height approximately 7.5", width: 5.75", depth of the base: 1.5".

How to make the frame

Cut two pieces the same, following the diagram for dimensions.

Score and crease on red lines.


 
Before assembling the frame, you may want to reinforce the sides or the top bar with glued-on card stock strips if your hanging piece is heavy.

Overlap the bottoms of the pieces, aligning the creases across the centers of the bases. Glue one on top of the other.


 
Heavily crease the fold across the center of the base. Fold up the frame sides.


 
Tape the thread of your hanging piece to the wrong side of one top bar.

Glue the top edges together.

I had to link this to my tutorial becuase I'm sure other people would like this too. I'll have to use this for other slice forms in the future. Cool idea!

The heart is available from Creative Pop Up Cards, here: http://www.creativepopupcards.com/valentines-day-pop-up-card-3d-heart-tutorial/

A little deceiving. Obviously the heart is the key. This is the hook to get you to Creative Pop Up Cards and pay $4.99. No problem .... I found a free download site for the heart....I've made several cards already....really great idea. You should make it more clear that the heart is not included before people spend an hour trying to find it. Let me know if you agree with me, or if I am missing something here

The heart file was free when I wrote this post.

I am not affiliated with Creative Pop Up Cards in any way. It is owned by a really great designer named Rich, who has decided he can no longer afford to give away his work.

Thanks for investing so much time & patience in your blog. I find you & many others to be generous in sharing & completely understand when one chooses to start chargeing. I can't imagine the hours you put into your craft! Thanks, again!
