Ingredients

  • construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush
  • watercolor paints
  • Marker
  • Black pen
  • Adhesive stamp or double-sided tape

Instructions

1

For the Mother’s Day card, take a thick piece of construction paper and cut it to 19 x 26 cm.

2

Fold the construction paper in half and then set it aside.

3

For the flowers, cut 7 pieces of paper measuring 10 x 10 cm.

4

Take the square paper and fold it diagonally three times to make a small triangle.

5

Next, take a pencil, place the triangle in front of you, closed point down, and draw an arc on the paper.

6

Then take scissors and cut along the arc. Now unfold the triangle carefully and voilĂ : you have an eight-petalled paper petal!

7

Repeat with the remaining papers so that you end up with 7 flowers.

8

These blossoms are now lightly painted in the middle with watercolor paints. Here you can design it however you want. I painted a spot of color in the middle of each one.

9

When the paint has dried, you can use the marker to draw small details such as lines and dots in the middle of the flower.

10

The flower is folded into 8 areas. Cut out a piece from each flower so that only 7 sections are left.

11

Now glue the two areas that are adjacent to the gap on top of each other. This closes the flower again and creates a 3D shape.

12

To ensure that the pop-up effect works, you now have to glue the flowers correctly on top of each other. Note that in the photo instructions in steps XX, the crosses represent the sides that need to be glued in the respective step.

13

It is also important to note that only the upper edges of the flowers may be glued together. Otherwise, the bouquet will not unfold properly when you open the card. So don’t use too much glue.

14

Now glue the flower into the card and only spread glue on the spot, as shown in picture X.

15

You can now try opening the card and see if there are places where it is sticking too tightly or not sticking properly.

16

Now only details. You can cut out leaves from green construction paper, fold them in the middle and glue them around the flowers. Make sure that the card can still be closed properly after you have glued the leaves on.

17

With a black pen you can write details such as small candles, a frame, bees or a nice greeting to mom.

Your flower pop-up card is ready.
