Swing Through Assembly Tutorial with Corri

Hi everyone! Corri here today sharing an assembly tutuorial for the new swing through cards. These cards feature a cool swing through motion when opened….your friends and family would love to receive one.

When you cut the file this is what you will have.

I decided to cut an extra one of the red panels so I could have a different pattern paper on the front of my card.

First, apply your panels to the interior of the card.

 Apply the tree cut outs to the interior of the card.  Everything is laying flat on your desk right now.  Do not twist anything yet.

Next, apply the panel on the front of your card.  You’ll notice you can’t see the die cut tree that you adhered.

Now you’re ready to flip your trees.  You can see that they are scored.  With your card open flip the tree on the left side of the card to the left.

Flip the tree on the right to the right.

There is small glue tab on the left side tree.  Fold on the score line and apply glue.   Adhere the tab to the back side of tree on the right.

There you have it! Such a fun and interactive card!

Love this design, it turned out so well – with help of the very easy to follow instructions. Thanks Corri!
BTW, I figured the lovely cover paper used might have been one of Lori’s own design, and it was. You can find it at Echo Park under The Story of Christmas. It’s a lovely pack. ~ chris

I’ve had the Cricut Explore for over a year but just a few months ago I found Lori’s website for SVG files. It felt like Christmas. I have downloaded many files. Thank you for such a variety. I feel like a little kid on Christmas.

I appreciate your instructions. It makes it look easy to do. What patterned paper did you use?

Your instructions make this swing through card look so easy to make. I love the patterned paper you used on the front – so cheery!
