How to make a 3D spring picture
Spring is edging near and we cant wait for all the colour and flowers to emerge, we usually take our home education outdoors and do allot more walks and nature becomes our favourite theme to explore! We have raided our cupboards and got out our colourful card and cake cases to create a spring themed 3D picture.
This would be ideal as a group project, or to make a gift for friends and family, we have made a few so lots of fridges are going to look very pretty indeed.
To make a 3D spring craft
You will need:
- A4 blue paper, green paper (2 shaded)
- cake cases
- foam stickers
- sticky pads
Cut a grass shape out of the lighter shade of green paper by simply cutting a zig-zag pattern and glue in place, leaving the spiky bits unglued.
Draw and cut out some stem and leaf shapes out of the darker green paper. Stick down behind the grass blades, then glue the grass blades down on to the blue paper.
With your cake cases fold in half and then again creating a quarter. cut the above shapes, one curved, one heart and one bumpy and then open up to create the flowers.
Glue down the base of the flower shaped cake cases on to your paper stems. You can now add a few foam stickers to add detail to your 3D spring picture.
To make a butterfly you will need to fold your cake case in half and cut out two winged shapes, when you open them up it becomes a butterfly shape. glue on to your picture then make a butterfly body by bending your pipe cleaners, stick them down using sticky tabs.
Here's some close ups of my pictures we have made quite a few versions now, which shows its an enjoyable craft for kids.
