This 3-D picture project is fun and easy to do. Just outline a simple picture with colorful paper to make it a three-dimensional work of art.

What You'll Need:

  • Pencil
  • Black and assorted colors of construction paper
  • Blunt scissors
  • Ruler
  • Craft glue
  • Pastel chalks

HOW TO MAKE A 3-D PICTURE:

Step 1: Draw a car on a piece of black construction paper.

Step 2: Cut 3/4-inch-wide strips from bright-colored construction paper to outline the wheels, doors, and hood of the car. If your car is winding down a country road, outline a tree and a fence.

Step 3: Put a line of glue around the wheels, and stand the paper up in the glue. Bend the paper to match each part of the outline.

Step 4: Outline the whole car in stand-up paper. Use pastel chalks when you are finished to add more color to your picture.
