Twisty Technique with Dorlene!

Hey there, Dorlene here and ready to share my Club Q project with you.

Not only does Club Q pre-design layouts and project kits, but there's so much more you can do with them. I love the Spring Showers paper collection. It's so pretty and I just had to create something that shows it off so I pulled some papers and die cuts from the kits and made a couple of Twisted Pop Up cards.

I made one for my sister-in-law's 60th birthday and the other for my mom for Mother's Day. I can't wait to see their reaction to this fun, interactive and pretty card!

Before adhering the patterned papers, I inked all edges in Key Largo PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

Check out my instructional video and then make your own twisted pop up card.


  • Cut three pieces of card stock at the following measurements:
    • Card Base: 4 1/4 x 11 (score at 5 1/2)
    • Mechanism: 3 x 8 (scored at 1 1/2 on short side and 4" on long side then mark at 2 1/2" from the right and left on the top and bottom. Score an "x" to connect the marks)
    • Twisted Base: 3 3/4 x 11 (score at 2 3/4 at each end; flip it over and score at 5 1/2; fold it into a "w")

Patterned Paper:

  • Three pieces cut at 4 x 5 1/4 (mark at 2" at the top and each side then cut the corners off on two of these pieces)
  • Four pieces cut at 2 1/2 x 3 1/2

I said it in the video, but I can't stress this enough, be sure to decorate the four panels before adhering the twisted base to the mechanism. It will make your life so much easier!
