Super-detailed instructions on how to assemble the Day At The Beach Pop-up Card, sold at my shop.

Final part 05: Adding the blanket, the hidden note, the beach ball and sealing the envelope

Blanket

We use 3 pieces: the blanket, flip-flops and hidden note. Fold the blanket in a Valley fold. Fold the note in a zigzag so you can see both markings "Glue" and "Flip flops"
