A to Z Crafts - G for Giraffe! Make your own 3D art!

3D or foam art is quite popular among the kids now, parents buy it because it is relatively cheap (around $1.50 to $3.50 per piece) and easy to do. But instead of buying, I decided to make my own.

It is very easy and cost saving to make your own 3D art / card, you may use a photo paper as an alternative to the foam.

G for Giraffe

What you'll need:
1) 2 pieces of photo papers
2) A colour printer
3) Double sided tape
4) cardboard (you may cut it from used carton box)
4) A pair of scissors

1)  Search for a colourful picture from the Internet, print it out on the photo papers.
For me I selected the following picture:

2) You will need to print two copies of the picture, one as the base and the other one for the upper layer.
As we only need a few objects for the upper layer, I took away the background colour of the picture to save my cartridges.
3) Cut out the objects that you would like to paste on the upper layer.
4) Paste a layer of cardboard below the cut-outs, to create the 3D effect when it is pasted on the picture.
The materials done:

5) Let the kid paste the cut-outs to the picture. They could do it like solving a puzzle, give the kid some hints on those small objects.

6) The 3D picture done:

 See his funny faces with his Giraffe 3D art!
