POP-UP CARDS - HOW TO MAKE A BASIC FACE
V.Ryan © 2016
 
 

Making a basic face with a opening and shutting mouth, is quite straightforward. It requires a limited amount of folding and cutting.

The stages are shown below.

 
 
 
  1. Take a piece of card and fold it in half. Apply pressure along the fold.
     
  2. Using a scissors, cut a line, as shown in the diagram, halfway across the folded card.
How will you find the middle / centre of the card?
     
  3. Fold each of the ‘sides’, to create a ‘V-fold’.
     
 
     

4. Open the card and flatten the two V-folds.

Then push the two V-folds out the opposite side of the card.

 

     
 

5. This produces a mouth that opens and shuts, as the card is opened and closed.

Try opening and shutting the card.

     
  6. To produce eyes, shut the card and cut two lines, as shown in the diagram. The cuts should not be too long.
 
 
 

7. Fold the eyes back to create a crease in the card.

You can add further decoration, such as large cartoon eyes.

Add backing card.
