How to make a twister pop up card
Crease along center score line. (Add score line at center fold to SVG file.)
Lay the card on a flat surface and pull the circular motif (the part that looks like a snowglobe) upright.
Lift the card slightly and flip the entire right half upside down, rotating it around the center score line. Re-align the slit parts at both ends of the card. Isn't that an amazing effect?
Trim the card to size.
Because this card needs to open completely flat, the base card is made in two pieces, leaving a small gap at the spine.
Cut a base card to the size you want, then slice it in two where you would normally crease the center fold.
Lay the base card on your flat surface with the cut edges together. You may want to tape it down with repositionable tape (like painter's tape).
Lay the cut card on the base card. Align center lines. Check that the cut edges at the center top and bottom line up. Again, you may want to tape these together temporarily.
Glue the cut card into the base card, one half at a time. Be sure you glue all around the edges of the card, and the flower parts in the middle.
The split in the center of the base card helps the card to fold up nicely without wrinkling the cut piece.
