Okay, so I did not know we had puffins in British Columbia. I thought they were located only in the North Atlantic. There is a breeding colony on Triangle Island, located off the northwestern tip of Vancouver Island, and has BC’s largest population with 26,000 breeding pairs. Puffins are sometimes referred to as sea parrots and when you look at their beak, you understand why. Puffins live together in a very large group called a raft. There are four types of puffins and the beaks vary. Do a Google search for yourself and learn more about these cute but odd-looking birds.
The fun fold I’m showing you today does not seem to have a name. When in a zoom meeting with my team lead last week, she referred to it as a picnic table because when it lies flat it does look like that, which you will see in the video below.
This would be the cutest set to use for creating kids birthday invitations. I was attracted to it because of a friend’s fascination with puffins so this card is for his birthday.
Cutting & Scoring Measurements
- Basic Black cardstock, 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 2″ and 3-1/8″ from each sided
- DSP, two pieces, 1-3/4″ x 5-1/4″
- Basic White, two pieces, 2″ x 5-1/4″
It’s very simple to make having only two score lines to make from each end of a half sheet of cardstock.
The majority of the supplies used for this project are listed below save for those coming out in the new Annual Catalogue.
