Angry Birds Shaped Cards

I've been making shaped cards for an assignment (which I can't share yet), so of course Trevor wanted to make his own shaped cards.  And what shape did he choose?  Angry birds!


Materials: colored cardstock, scissors, glue, and a black pen.


To make the bird, fold the red cardstock in half.  Without unfolding, cut out a circle shape, keeping a portion of the fold line intact.



Cut features from cardstock: two white circles for eyes, black eyebrows, a yellow beak, a red tuft of feathers, and a white tummy.  Glue features on the front of the card.  Use the black pen to add the pupils of the eyes.  You can write your message on the inside of the card.


To make the pig, fold the green cardstock in half.  Without unfolding, cut out a circle, keeping a portion of the fold line intact.

Cut the features from cardstock: two white circles for eyes, black eyebrows, a green circle for the nose, a green oval for the mouth, and two green half-ovals for the ears.  Glue the features to the front of the card.  Use the black pen to add the pupils of the eyes.

Here's Trevor with his finished cards.   He's really excited about them.  It will be interesting to see if he is willing to give them away as cards, or if he ends up keeping them himself. 


I'm still not done with my shaped cards, so maybe I'll encourage Trevor to make the rest of the Angry Birds characters while I'm working on my assignment!
