How to make a shark pop-up card

What you need:

Step-by-step instructions

Print out the form. We have black and white and full color versions, both available in two sizes.

We’ll show you a smaller black and white version.

Print on cardstock Once printed, color the scene with your favorite coloring supplies.

Cut out the card.

Place the card on top of the red paper and cut around to get a red rectangle the same size as the card.

Fold the red rectangle in half.

Also fold the shark card in half – along the dotted line. Leave the image outside.

Cut in a zigzag pattern between the teeth, be careful and cut slowly.

There are diagonal lines on the shark’s body. Fold along those lines. Makes the folds nice and sharp.

Open the card. Push your finger through the opening, from behind, and gently begin to close the tag, this time with the shark inside.

Slowly close it, still gently pushing your mouth and teeth with your fingers.

Once the card is closed, run your hand over the folds a few times.

Paste the picture card inside the folded red card.

Press down to secure the glue.

All has been done! Your shark pop-up card is ready to bite.
