Here's an Art Attack you can use to make some really distinctive celebration cards!

You will need:
  • Card
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Sticky tape
  • Felt tips
  • Stick glue
Fold a long rectangle of card in half.
Then, open it out again and place it face down.
Use a pencil to make a mark about 2cm in from each edge, along the fold.
Then measure 2cm either side of the fold, and use the pendil to make marks.
Join the marks up with a ruler, to make little triangles.

The idea is to fold down the lines. The easiest way to do this is to score down them.
To score, take a pair of scissors and use some sticky tape to keep them closed.
This allows you to safely run them down the edge of a ruler.
When you've scored the lines, you'll be able to pinch them neatly to make hinges.
Next, on another piece of card, draw and cut out two arms like these.
Open the card out and glue the arms onto the bottom half of the hinges, like this.
Bend one arm slightly back, and one slightly forward.
Then, when you close the card, the arms should hide from view.

If you can still see the arms, just reposition them while the glue is still wet.
Open up the card again and draw on an excited person, taking care to line the drawing up with the arms.

Make the drawing cartoon-like and simple...
Colour the drawing in and you'll have something that looks like this!

This one has had "Yippee Birthday" wording added too!
Here are some other ideas - how about a Yippee Halloween card?
