How to make a Pop Up Chick Card for Easter – Step by Step Instructions
Preparing the Paper Chick’s body features
- You will need to cute some wings, beak and feet, as well a some grass. As mentioned, you could also add some (Easter) Eggs and Hearts, depending on seasons and how you want to finish it all off
- The wings are cut from the same coloured paper as the body – I cut a “heart shape” but with three humps
- The beak is just a thin triangle
- And the feet are made of two orange hearts
Make your Paper Chick Body
- Cut 9-10 white circles (you can use our template for size or use small cup/ lid)
- Fold the circles in half.
- Add glue to one half of the circle and lay a second circle on top. When you have half your circles stuck together, add the beak and then add the remaining circles.
- Continue until all half circles a stuck together.
- Add to small circles for eyes on either side of the beak.
Final Assembly of your Chick Pop Up Card DIY
- Make sure you have NOT closed the paper bauble “in on itself”.
- Position the paper bauble in the centre of the card and glue the bottom half of it down (not the top, as you still want to slide “bits” in)
- Now you can add glue to your paper chick’s wings to the top and the bottom “circle”.
- Draw some straight lines and add your paper chick’s feet.
- Finally add your grass!
