Thanks Anne from Use Your Coloured Pencils for inspiring this idea with her Van Gogh Pop-Up Chair lesson. We did the chairs too, they were fun!
This was a simple lesson, but it took longer than I thought it would because the kids got into the coloring of their backgrounds.
Each student was given 1 black, 6"x9" paper, and 1 white 5"x7" & 1 white 4"x6" papers.
First they placed 5x7" white in center of black, and folded up the bottom 1/3 of the papers together. (Then put black paper aside til later.)
Next make 2 cuts on fold of 5x7" white paper to make the 3D shelf which will hold the vase of flowers in front of the background.
On smaller sheet of white paper, students draw vase and flowers, then cut and glue onto shelf. (Tell kids to use up whole piece of paper for their vase and flowers, otherwise it'll be too small.)
Last, glue white background onto black background.
