How to make Pop Up Flowers:
Start by making the stand for the master piece you’re going to do. Take a hard board box like the one shown below. A mailing box is easier to use for this purpose.
Cut the side into diagonals. (Adult supervision required)
Turn the box upside down and glue it as shown below. Ensure that you use hot glue or any other good adhesive to hold the stand well.
Take a color of your choice, and paint the box with the color. Have at least 2 coats so that the stand looks complete and stokes aren’t visible.
Now take a colorful empty and relatively less thick carton box. Cut out flowers out of the box. Cut flowers of different shapes and sizes. Since the thermocol sheet will be the background for the image, the size of the flowers will depend on the size of your thermocol sheet.
Take the buttons and paste a button with glue at the center of each flower.
Cut out stems out of a part of the box which is of the right color. The flowers would look as shown below.
Now take a bright color acrylic paint and paint the thermocol sheet. Here again have atleast 2 coats and have nice shades with a good color composition. Let it dry.
Stick the flowers to the thermocol sheet. While pasting, paste it in such a manner that the center part of the flowers are stuck the background so that the flowers are sticking out from the background and have a pop-up effect.
And there you go…. spring in summer! Surprise your mom with this piece of pop up flowers craft she will forever cherish.
