|A great way of making things pop out at you!|
You will need:
|Look through some old magazines to find a big photo of someone’s face, and cut it out carefully.|
Stick it to a piece of thin card.
|Take another piece of thick paper, and draw two silly eyes on it.|
|Cut them out, colour them, and you’ll have two silly eyes like this.|
|To make this even sillier, you must make it look like the eyes are popping out of the face.|
To do this, you need to make some paper springs.
Cut two strips of paper, about 30cm long and 1cm wide.
|Lay the end of one strip on top of the other so that they are at right angles, and tape (or glue) the strips together.|
|Fold the strips alternately over one another. This is the first fold.|
|And this is another fold from the other side. |
Eventually you get into a rhythm of fold and lift, fold and lift, etc.
Keep folding one strip over the top of the other.
|When you get near the end, put some glue on the end, fold the last one over and press it together.|
|And there you have a waggly paper spring. |
Make another one in exactly the same way so that you have two.
|Then put some glue on the back of one of your drawn eyes, and stick it onto the end of one of your springs.|
|Then glue the other end of the spring, and pop it onto an eye of the photo. |
Hold it in place until the glue has dried.
|If you do likewise for the other eye, you’ll have something that looks like this! |
And there you have it - pop up eyes!
Try it yourself!
