Peter Dahmen's Peony Card

CharoCharo Member Posts: 678
I have seen and admired this card many times on Pinterest etc but until @Crazy_Mr_Zing mentioned one of his YouTube videos I didn't know he was sharing his file.  It is an amazing card and the creative mind that dreamed this up is amazing too.

    The Long Great , Well Done
    I not sure i would have the patient to assemble that I tried similar complicated form like this all i manage to do was get frustrated and add to my waste paper bin

    Peter Dahmen make so wonderful creations
    I rather inspired by this butterfly card it was a commercial consignment Limited addition of 200 card
    I Think i have figured out the basic mechanics of how it works
    I think it could work with other shapes too maybe christmas baubles ?? just have to get motivate to nut it out



    Another one the really blows my mind is this concept design of a ring box



    and this amazing popup
    which i watched many time and think oh i see how the bit works then realise no I don't?

    Oh my - those designs are mind blowing.  Haven't even tried to get to grips with this sort of thing.  Maybe one day a lightbulb will go off until that day I will just admire.

    I was sure the some mathematical concept to the angles on V fold which the butterfly bottoms section is but yet I've not found any documentation

    Wow!  @Crazy_Mr_Zing it took me three tries to get that flower sliced together and if I hadn't cut the pieces in alternating colors I don't think it would be done yet.  It is so simple but the first time around putting it together is not easy.  That jewelry box is incredible.  I saw a popup kind of village he did and I just can't even imagine how he comes up with such things, much less makes them happen.
