Using a ruler as a guide, take the rounded end of a paper clip (or a ballpoint pen that has run out of ink) and press along the dotted lines of the bird house pieces.
Do the same thing along the dotted line of the birdhouse card.
Using the pointed end of a pair of scissors (ask an adult for help for with this) poke a hole through the large circle in the center of the bird house.
Cut the large circle out from the center of the birdhouse.
Cut the birdhouse out.
Cut the bird out. Be careful when cutting around the wings, and take your time!
Take the bird piece and...
...flip it completely over so you can't see the dotted lines anymore (we're doing this so the dotted lines won't be so visible in the finished pop-up)
Grip the bird piece with both hands and fold it back along the center score, right under the bird's tail.
Take hold of the small tab at the far right and fold it towards you.
Take hold of the small tab at the far left and fold it towards you.
Going back to the center fold (right under the bird's tail) begin pushing the bird back away from you.
The bird piece should now look like this. The tabs are both coming towards you and the bird is pushed back away from you.
Cut out the card print out.
Fold it in half along its dotted line, then open it back up again
Apply glue to the areas marked “A” and “B” on the card. Be careful, you don’t need a lot of glue!
Take the bird piece and line up the tabs at both ends with the “A” and “B” on the card.
Carefully press the bird piece down onto the glue areas “A” and “B.” Let dry!
After the glue has dried begin to slowly close the card. Notice that the bird begins to curve back into the card. If the bird needs a little help curving back into the card use your finger to assist it.
Open the card again. Apply glue to the flat area to the left of the bird, making sure you don’t get any glue on the bird or its tail!
Take the birdhouse piece and carefully line it up with the bottom of the piece you just applied glue to (as shown by the red arrow above). Let the glue dry!
Carefully begin to close the card. The bird will go back into its house. When you open the card you can even see the bird’s head through the “hole door” before it comes out of the house!
Color and decorate both the bird and house!
