Downscale Carded A.S.P. Part 4, Fin Fold and Skin Gluing
The through cut was made on the other side. The other side of the fin (shown here) is oversize to insure there is color coverage when the fin is cut out.
Here's the (larger printed area) back side of the fin. You can see how the cut is inside the ink bleed area.
Cut the root edge first.
Turn over the fin to cut the trailing edge.
Cut lightly only through the top skin and card stock center, leaving the spin tab still attached on the other side.
This is not as hard as it sounds.
Start the cut using a straightedge. Finish with light cuts.
You'll feel when the center layer is being cut off.
Apply a glue fillet on the spinneron edge.
