Today I am sharing a pop-up Easter card I made together with my son. It is not the typical project I share on my blog, but we used some Sizzix dies and I thought it was a bit clever (and he loved it), so I thought I would share.
Sized Ovals, from yellow cardstock. I started hand-cutting a pop-up beak, but then suddenly got the idea of using Karen Burniston's Evergreen Tree pop-up die instead. I die cut just the top of the tree from orange cardstock and trimmed it a bit to only have the top piece, which formed a fun scalloped edge beak. Very easy.
I cut the arms, legs and crowns from cardstock, and we glued everything in place. Adhere one side of the pop-up chicken first, lining it up with the fold of the card, apply adhesive on the other side and fold the card over, so that it sticks.
Mini Butterfly die. The butterflies ended up looking pretty funny with eyes on their wings.
Thank you for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a vintage interactive mini-book tutorial.
