Step one


The first step is to take your paper and fold it in half longways

Next, open it back up and put in to one side.

Step TWO

The surface of the second A5 watercolour paper needs to be painted with purple Deriven watercolour paint. Wet the paper first to create an abstract design. Once it is dried, paint the other side of the paper - you need to do this as it is a popup card and you will see both sides when it is opened.

The petals of a flower are the most important part of the flower. It is what makes the flower unique from any other flower.  

To make a paper petal, start by folding it in half and then folding it again so that the tip bends inwards. use the photo as a reference

Polymer gloss varnish is a water-based, varnish that can be used in a variety of ways. Use the varnish as an adhesive for your petals, simply paint the folded tip of the petal and glue it to the halfway pencil mark. Repeat these steps on the next petal.

Step eight 

Once you have all the petals glued to the card, trim off any excess paper. carefully make sure that the petals are spread out evenly and not overlapping too much.
