Waterfall Cards   (or flip card)
Video, Template and Written Instructions Below

I love flip cards.  I like to print out all my own backgrounds and designs so I created a fillable template to use with my computer. Below is a copy of this template if you can't get it to work for you just email me.   Written Directions at bottom of section.  There is also a printable that has only the waterfall panel and bar and all the measurements on it, if you just want to use cardstock to make your card.

Below is the template to use if you are using plain cardstock to make you card if you want to decorate with stamps or stickers.

Keep going down for directions
Below is a card I made making the top layer of the flip card longer.
It still works just fine.
Instructions for A Waterfall Card

(Supplies: Card, Cardstock (1 piece doublesided), ruler, craft knife,  double sided tape or glue stick, 1/8” punch and two brads - Optional  paper punches- 2” punch, 2 1/2” punch, and a 3” punch (measurement is corner to corner),
1. Copy template and open on an 8 1/2” x 11” page.
2. Fill template with desired papers and graphics. If you are going to decorate in some way other than computer graphics you will only need the main waterfall panel.

3. Print out exact size and cut out pieces. (I use punches to cut out my squares to make sure they are exactly the same size. A 2 1/2" punch makes a square that is 1 3/4" x 1 3/4").
Also from cardstock (double sided is best), punch out 4 squares (a 3" punch actually makes a square that is 2 1/8" x 2 1/8") which is a perfect size for the waterfall squares.

4. Score lines on main waterfall panel. Fold each line to the inside then open all folds back up except for the one closest to the middle, that will be the top of your waterfall. (Lines will be on the inside which is why you need to score and fold first)  See fig. A below

5. Center the waterfall panel to the card stock panel and put glue or tape on the bottom of the outside waterfall panel and on the side area. See Fig B.  Do NOT glue waterfall panel down to back panel, it won't move if you do. This bar is the only thing keeping your waterfall on the card.
6. Place the bar over the tape or glued areas, press down.(Fig C) Punch holes in side area with a 1/8" punch and add brads. (Fig D)

7. Pull the waterfall panel down making sure it flows smoothly.  Leave panel down with only the first fold line showing. (also Fig D).  Put tape or glue in the dotted area and press down one of the large squares. Line up the top of the square exactly under the fold line. (Fig E).
8. Push up the Waterfall panel until the next fold line is at the top, glue or tape in marked area exactly as before and add next square. (Fig. F).  Continue pushing up the next two panels and attaching squares.

9. Use the large squares to decorate the tops of the flip squares and the smaller ones to decorate the back.  Words and/or messages also go well on the back side.
9. After panel is decorated  you can matt if desired.  I usually round off the edges and matt about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch.  Then mount to card.  Below is a link to view my video on how to put the Waterfall card together.
