Pop-up Hand Card Step by Step
Prepare a rectangular piece of thick paper, keeping in mind that if you fold it in half, the resulting area should fit your hand.
Fold the cardboard in half.
From the fold side, place your hand and trace it without the wrist.
Without laying out the paper, cut out the drawn palm. There is no need to trim the folded side.
Open the paper and you will have two joined palms.
Place, for example, a heart or a flower in your open palms. It is on a stand, which is a small strip of cardboard. Also cut out a heart, you can decorate it with glitter, cut it out of beautiful structured paper, or stick a smaller heart of a different color on top.
Fold the strip in half and glue it to the center of your palm.
Attach a paper heart to the top of it, cover the rest of the palm with small hearts and sign it.
The pop-up hand card is ready, you can close it and give it to the hero of the occasion.
