Materials used:

Now we put it all together:

-          Cut out shape’s provided for you

-          Tape the 4 1/2x61/2  brown card stock to the front of the already made card

-          Take the 4x4 pink card stock, trace and cut out the Mommy bird out of it.

-          Take the 3x3 blue card stock, trace and cut the baby bird with it

-          Take the 3x3 green card stock, trace and cut the both arms out of it.

-          Place 3D foam squares at the neck and bottom of the Mommy bird and place onto the card

-          Place double stick tape on the back of the head, and a 3d foam square on the bottom of the Baby bird. Then place the head under the neck of the Mommy bird.

-          Using the double stick tape, place the arm without the tab on it over the mommy. When looking at the card, it will be on your right hand side.

-          Place double stick tape on the tab on the arm, insert the tab behind the baby bird’s head.

-           Make sure the arms are overlapping and tape. If they are off a little, the cut to match.

-          Attached is a Diagram of the placing for the bird’s and arms.

-          Take the Sharpie and draw in the eyes and legs.


                       All that’s left Is to write a message and sign the card and give it to Mom.
