Primary Technique: Paper Crafts

Occasion/Theme: Fall

Beginner

Materials:

  • Hand drawn rib cage template
  • Card stock
  • Craft knife
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Scoring tool
  • Straightedge
  • Cutting mat

Instructions:

  1. Photocopy a dictionary page onto card stock to create a background for your rib cage. You can use a plain card stock, purchase a printed card stock, illustrate the background, or make a collage to accent the ribs. Once you’ve got your papers, draw the pattern for the rib cage and print it onto your prepared card stock.


     
  2. Cut out the card base, the two rib cage side pieces, and the rib cage using a craft knife. Cut the three slits in the card base. Score along the central dotted line on the card base and valleyfold it in half. Score along the dashed lines on the two rib cage side pieces and mountain-fold each one along those lines.
     
  3. Glue the inside of both folded rib cage side pieces, gluing both sides of the fold and sandwiching the matching sides of the rib cage into the glued areas.
     
  4. Thread the strap through the righthand slit in the card base from front to back and then thread it back into the card through the slit along the dotted line. Carefully lift the left side of the rib cage and apply glue to the back side of the rib cage side piece. Attach it to the base along the dotted line, taking care not to get glue on the strap.
     
  5. Tuck the loose end of the strap into the slit on the left side of the base while folding the base page in half. Close the card completely, fold the end of the strap over, and glue it to the card base. Let the glue dry briefly. Open the card and watch your rib cage slide into three dimensions!
