How to Make a Neverending Card

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

Looking for a fun and easy project to do with the kids that won’t get put on the shelf (or in the trash) afterwards? Try this Neverending Card! Think homemade card meets fidget meets origami. But waay easier with a Cricut machine in your tool box!

A neverending card is a fun card that moves! Think homemade card meets fidget meets origami. It's a perfect paper craft for kids and adults and totally customizable with card stock or your own designs. A Cricut machine makes it even easier.

Neverending Card Supplies Needed

The card itself is just made of some double-sided card stock and a glue stick. Don’t have double sided cardstock? You can draw your own designs or glue together some single sided cardstock.

How to Cut a Neverending Card

Making a neverending card with a Cricut is so easy!! Just two sheets of cardstock and a few minutes and you’ll have your parts ready. My 8 year old daughter loved making this on her own, even.

    1. Download the Neverending Card template HERE. This includes an SVG you can upload into Cricut as well as PDF and instructions you can use as a template at home if you don’t have a Cricut machine.

      1. Hop over to Cricut Design Space and upload the shape SVG. Then make a copy as you’ll need two of these. Make the color for one of the shapes different so it will prompt you to change cardstock.

      1. Hit Make It and select the type of paper you are using. I used Medium Cardstock. By the way, I love using the mobile app for my Cricut Maker. My desk where my computer lives is a little tight for my machine, too. So I upload my designs and then move over to the dining room table for cutting with my phone.
      2. Place your first color of double-sided card stock on a LightGrip Machine Mat and load.

      1. Next, insert your scoring wheel. The scoring wheel is what makes doing a neverending card on a Cricut instead of freehand absolutely amazing. It pre-folds your pieces exactly where you need them to make the card neverending. And my design has that included for you.

      1. Let the machine do it’s thing and then swap in your fine point blade and let it cut the pieces into parts. This is what you’ll get…

      1. Now repeat with your other cardstock pattern. And you’ll have the 4 pieces you need to make your neverending card.

How to Assemble a Neverending Card

Now that you have your pieces cut and scored, it’s time to assemble the card. Grab your glue stick or double-sided tape and the four pieces.

      1. Lay out two of your cardstock rectangles with the pattern matched in the middle and the folded lines running vertically, like the template diagram below. Place some glue stick in the areas with the purple rectangles on the image below.

      1. Lay out the other two of your cardstock rectangles with the pattern matched in the middle and the folded lines running horizontally. Grab the right piece and place over the right side of the glued cardstock, lining up the edges. Repeat with the right piece on the right side.

      1. Let the glue dry. If you play with it before the glue dries it will just fall apart…
      2. Now it’s is time to play with the card and add some more solid folds where you have crease lines.

And be sure to watch the video to see how the card works!
