HOW INTERNAL STAND MECHANISMS CAN BE USED

V. Ryan 2010

 

Interesting pop-up designs can be produced by making two cuts to a backing card and bending the card inwards so that it forms a small stand (inside the card).

 
 
A slightly more difficult pop-up card can be produced by making the stand separately. This can be seen below. Remember to include tabs as these will be the surfaces that are used to glue the stand to the card.
The diagram with the tiger shows how an image can be added to an internal stand.

Drawings / images can be placed on the stand so that when the card is opened the image ‘pops’ up.
Internal stand mechanisms are normally glued on to the inside faces of greetings card. When the greetings card is opened the internal stand mechanism ‘stands up’.

This is a simple and effective means of producing a pop-up greetings card.
 
 
 
The sample pop-up greetings card, shown below, has an image of a tiger glued to the internal stand. As the greetings card is opened the tiger appears. The tiger has been glued on to an extra stand. The extra stand has tabs, which allow it to be glued to the original pop-up stand.

Graphics / illustrations and colour could be added to the rest of the stand. These could include a landscape such as a jungle habitat or of a zoo.
