    Tips:

    • Be sure to practice the cutting first before doing the trick! YOU MUST CUT the spine as directed or the paper will not open up.
    • Open the cut card up slowly. The paper is fragile and can easily tear.
    • Once you have mastered the cutting method you can do this with any holiday card!
