Bit of a Kinetics moment!
I had forgotten how much like playing with Kinetics.... ie movement on cards/ATC's. I have always been fascinated by pop up books ever since I was a small child. I have made several 'Double Sliders' one of which is here on my blog (scroll down a bit) bit fiddly but much easier than it looks.As I had a timely reminder that I had put my name down for a 'kinetics swap' I thought I had better have a play today. Here is the result!i have added the template so if you would like a play please do!Cut 'window' out along three sides and score where indicated. The small bit at the bottom is attached to a piece of card which is pulled out. Fold the ATC card in half and fold the flaps round and adhere to the back.Decorate how you wish, I suggest you do this before you stick it all together!!Top Tip... make a rough prototype first so you can see how the mechanics work and where you can decorate
