Butterfly Pop Up Card Paper Craft
- Paper (colored, black, orange)
- Cardboard Paper (green)
- Glue Stick
Get started by cutting out the blades of grass – use your glue stick to glue them down on the inside of the green card. Then, fold your black paper like an accordion and trace a butterfly on the front.
The edges of the butterfly should match up with the edges of the fold, so that when you cut the butterfly out, it unfolds like an accordion.
The video tutorial shows each step one by one. Paste your orange cut-outs on the butterfly with your glue stick.
Then finish by gluing the butterfly on the inside of the green card – check out the finished card, below:
