Step 1: Card Base

Cut a piece of colored paper or card stock to 10 inches by 6 1/2 inches.

Fold the paper in half so that it is 5 inches by 6 1/2 inches.

Unfold the paper and lay it with the inside on the table.

The right-hand "panel" is where you will put the picture.

Step 2: Paper Cutout

Place the paper with the drawing on top of a colored paper.

Cut out the section that corresponds with the color of paper. Cut through both layers just inside the black lines, and try to avoid damaging the other parts of the drawing.

Gently separate the cutout from the rest of the sheet.

Position the line drawing where you want the finished picture to be on the card base.

Glue the colored cutout onto the card base, using the line drawing as a guide.

Repeat this process with every piece.

Refold the card base with the picture on the outside.
