How to create a penguin pop-up card using our penguin pop-up card template

What you need:

Step-by-step instructions

Print out the pop-up card template – you can choose a black and white template that children will have to color in first.

Or print the pre-colored version and you’re ready to go!

Cut card – cut along the outside border (rectangle).

Fold in half along the dotted lines on the card – the design needs to be on the outside.

Take scissors and cut along the full line running through the penguin’s beak.

You’ll notice two diagonal dashed lines along the beak – fold along those lines.

Makes the folds nice and sharp.

Open the card.

Push your finger inside the beak – from the back (the side without the design).

Slowly close the card (fold it back with the design on the inside).

Press down to make the fold nice and sharp.

Take the “background card” – it should be the same size or larger than the pop-up card.

Apply glue to half of the folded card and stick it on the red card.

Glue the other half of the card…

…and show a red card. Press down and wait for the glue to set.

All has been done! Your penguin pop up card is ready!
