Hello! Here is the ‘new & improved’ valentine popup template as promised. As you can see there are only a few minor changes. Most importantly it now pops up the other way so it can be stood on a mantelpiece or windowsill. There is also an added ‘chink’.
Templates (+ cutting/scoring guide) are at the foot of the post. Refer to the old post for instructions but make sure you use the new cutting/scoring guide and templates below. As usual, if there are any problems please leave a comment.

+ Use good quality paper or card for the insert. I would say no heavier than 160gsm for best results.
+ Use the point of a needle (and a ruler) to score. That way you get really crisp folds.
+ Take your time and cut/score as precisely as you can.
+ Once you have scored and cut all the lines flip the piece of paper over before popping the heart out…this means the printed lines will be hidden from view.
+ Do make a test card because the second attempt is always better (there are two inserts on the pdf ^_^).
(Boxed geometric heart to come next week…)
