Lift the Flaps

Hi crafty friends! It’s June. 

It’s time for new monthly project with me. Today I am going to share a Slimline Lift the Flaps Card. Lift the Flaps is a most simple pop-up that hide messages and other images behind the flaps. My card hide another images under flaps too. And of course this is a light-up card using Chibitronics stickers.  Because the flaps are switches, lifting the flap will light-up the sign of heroes, closing the flap will lights go out again. 

If you want to make the card, please watch my YouTube video tutorial about it. And follow these instructions. This video tutorial show you how to make this light-up Lift the Flaps Card step by step.
This is the cover image.
If you lift the flap, you can see this village scene from underneath it.
In addition, if a battery is inserted, you will see the building’s sign light-up like in the picture above.

1. Stamping & Coloring

 To begin, I stamped, colored, and cut out the images with scissors from Lawn Fawn VILLAGE HEROES, HAPPY VILLAGE and ALL THE CLOUDS Clear Stamps.

2. Cutting Paper

I cut a card base to 8 ½” x 7″, thick board to 8 ½ x 3 ½” and using the Lawn Fawn LARGE SLIMLINE WITH SLIDERS and SMALL SLIMLINE WITH LIFT THE FLAPS Die Cuts.
Mark it in that position on the flaps like in the picture above and cut out it. This is a process for attaching three switches under the flaps.
Then prepare each part as you can see in the picture above.

3. Download Template

Then make a circuit panel using the template you downloaded and cut out the three rectangle holes of the second panel.

4. Creating Background

I ink blended first and second panels with Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citroen, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot Distress Oxide inks for the background. Then I splattered it with blue and white inks mixed with water, stamped the sentiment.

5. Creating Scene

I attached and layered on my colored images on front panel for the scene.
And then, I attached another stamping images under three flaps that is second panel.

6. Circuit Composing

Make the Circuit Panel with 1mm thickness board for switch and battery. And then draw the circuit according to the three marked positions.
Attach copper tape and chibitronics white LED stickers along the template as shown in the picture above.

7. Assembly

After composing the circuit, attach the cover tightly on the circuit panel.
I finished this card  by checking that insert a battery(2016) into the battery holder and lift flap to ensure proper operation.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a safe and joyful day!
