Family Art Night Activity Sneak Preview - Pop-Up Card and Cut Out Templates Test run

I have prepared a few greeting card pop-up card templates with "Mother's Day" and "Happy Easter" themes along with a few options of cute cut outs that will actually pop-up when the cards are opened. Will have markers and foam stickers for further customization at an upcoming Family Art Night event at the Boys & Girls Club on the 13th of this month. For a quick test run, I used them on a recent art class for a High School group.
Trying out different coloring approaches.
Sample finished card.
Once students completed their first pop-up card and understood its simple mechanics, they started designing their own backgrounds. That's the main idea: get familiarized with the pop-up card creation process, and then let your imagination loose and create your own cards for different occasions.
