Turning your Carousel Card into a Model

Card are great fun, but after a while we have to put them in a draw or even recycle them, so I created a card with the potential to be turned into a model so it becomes it's own unique gift.

Here is a step by step on how to turn your concertina card into a little model you can keep. You can watch this video or follow the simple instructions and picture below. If you do get stuck drop me an email and I can help you out!

Step 1: Draw tabs on the right side of each roof top and the very right edge of the model.

Step 2: Cut your card around these tabs.
