How To Make A Parasol Beachscape Card
Make this colourful sea-scape card with a 3D parasol – perfect to be used as an invitation for a summer party! Ideal for children aged 7-11 years old.
Art materials you will need:
- Sheet of A4 yellow card
- Scraps of mid blue, orange, white and pale blue paper or card
- Scrap of red and white spotty scrapbooking fabric
- Orange and red felt tip pen
- One pink paper cocktail umbrella
- Gel glue
To make a Parasol Beachscape Card, follow these simple instructions:
- Firstly, using the templates trace and cut out the main card shape and other pieces. Score down the centre of the card with a ruler and fold in half neatly.
- With a glue stick, stick on the mid blue section for the sea and pale blue for the sky. Glue on the white seagull shapes on the sky.
- With an orange felt tip pen, draw the details on the starfish. Glue the towel shape to the front of the card and add the tassel details with a red felt tip pen.
- Finally glue on the paper cocktail umbrella so it rests on the top of the card and touches the towel.
