  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Trim cardstock to 6" x 3"... You will need 4 pieces of them in total to start with...

    Step 2

    Score 1.5" at both ends of the cardstock across the 6" length (indicated by the dotted lines)... Repeat for all 4 pieces of cardstocks...

    Step 3

    Apply glue/adhesive tape (I'm using ScorTape here on the purple cardstock as an example) at the corners of 2 of the cardstocks as indicated - approximately 1.5" x 1.5" square along the score lines...

    Step 4

    Position 2 cardstocks (the ones with glue/adhesives) with the horizontal score lines together side by side... Then position 2 of the cardstocks with the vertical score lines on the top & bottom...

    Step 5

    Bring down the top cardstock down and adhere to the upper corner ends of 2 adjacent cardstocks as indicated by the plain box...

    Step 6

    Repeat by bringing up the bottom cardstock to the lower corner ends of the 2 adjacent cardstocks... You will get a 6" x 6" card after assembly...

    Step 7

    You can start flipping the card vertically as shown...

    Step 8

    And give a good burnish using a bone folder along the score lines...

    Step 9

    Flip the card horizontally, revealing a cross as shown...

    Step 10

    Again, give a good burnish using a bone folder along the score lines... And now you are done with an infinity card, ready to be decorated...

    Step 11

    There's 4 different views you can get from the infinity card... Keep playing around with the mechanism to get the view you want to get started with...

    Step 12

    TIPS: There's 2 of parts (as indicated by the white regions) that can be seen from 2 of the views, so you need to take this into account when comes to decorating...

    Step 13

    Decoration Tips: You may add some dimensions to your card which I had on some parts, but do ensure that whatever you add will not interfere with the mechanism...
