How to make a 3D spring picture

3D spring picture

Spring is edging near and I simply can not wait for all the colour and flowers to emerge. I spend allot of time outdoors and do have plentiful walks and nature becomes my favourite theme to explore! I have raided the cupboards and got out our colourful card and cake cases to create a spring themed 3D picture.

This would be ideal as a group project, or to make a gift for friends and family, I  have made a few so lots of fridges are going to look very pretty indeed.

Cut a grass shape out of the lighter shade of green paper by simply cutting a zig-zag pattern and glue in place, leaving the spiky bits unglued.
