Step 1: Cut out the “Pop Up”

Fold your inner piece of construction paper in half. I chose white because its easier to write on, but you can choose any color. Cut two slits in the middle to make a wide ‘tab’, and fold it up. Then create two smaller ‘tabs’ on the ends, as illustrated below.

Then open your card, and fold these ‘tabs’ inward. This is what you’ll glue your character and shapes to! It creates a pop-up effect when you open the card.

Step 2: Create Your Characters and Shapes

For Minnie Mouse, I used a roll of Minnie Mouse Duck Tape and a votive candle to trace circles. You could use a small bowl and quarters, or anything else around you that’s a similar size! I also hand-drew a bow for Minnie. Trace, cut out, and and glue your pieces together. I opted to add a few hearts to the side of Minnie Mouse, but you could do any shape!
