Bunnies and Trees Pop Up Card

To create this origamic architecture Easter bunnies and trees tabbed pop up card I pulled elements from one of my favorite scherenschnitte sources, Papercutters. The bunnies, trees and flowers are from the Back Street Designs Holiday Collection book.

Cut on black lines, score on red lines. The score lines on this card are quite short.  I would hand score them rather than using a machine cut dashed cut line.

To pop the objects forward, work from the back.  Gently push the trees, flowers and bunnies forward while working side to side,  pinching the folds. Once all the creases are established you will be able to fold the card flat.

Apply adhesive to the parts of the card that are NOT popped forward, and glue into a folded card, matching center folds.
