This past weekend we made pop ups. We had received a pop up card and C was intrigued how the card was made so I decided to show her how to make a simple pop up. As an Elementary Art Teacher my students would always love making any type of pop up art. Keep reading to find out how to make a simple pop up.
9x12 construction paper
Construction paper scraps
First fold the construction paper in half like this, but keep it folded.
On the fold, create two cuts that are about an inch apart. You can create more cuts if you want more pop up elements.
Open up the folded paper and reverse fold the part you cut like this.
This is what the pop out part looks like from the side.
In our finished pop up, C connected two papers together and the caterpillar was popped out with two pop out pieces.
ENJOY MAKING POP UPS!
