All-Hands-In Card

All-Hands-In Card craft

Create a lively 3-D card to applaud a big accomplishment, to thank someone for giving you a hand, or to invite friends to a pool party with all hands on deck!

  • 1.

    Experiment with paper folding using scrap paper before creating your final design using Crayola Black Color Explosion™ Paper and Markers.

  • 2.

    With a Crayola Erasable Colored Pencil, draw a pentagon in the center of plain paper. It should look like a house with the sides angled wider to the roof, so all sides are about 1.5 inch (4 cm).

  • 3.

    Draw a short "arm" reaching out diagonally in the same direction from each side of the pentagon, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) long. Draw a cartoon-like hand on the end of each arm. Cut around the edges of to make one piece.

  • 4.

    Use this cut-out as a tracing template on the back of your Black Color Explosion Paper. Trace around it with a Crayola Erasable Colored Pencil. Cut out the shape.

  • 5.

    Add fingernails, rings, tattoos, and knuckle wrinkles to the black sides of the hands using the black Color Explosion Marker. Use Crayola Glitter Glue to add dazzle to your designs. Air-dry the sparkles.

  • 6.

    Place the paper with the white side up. Write a colored pencil message in the center of the card. Fold each hand and arm toward the center and interlock the fingers to close the card.
