Pop up Dresses

Today I ran a craft day for children here in Methven. I ended up with 15 kids, the most that I have ever had. They were a great bunch and we made 6 projects. This is the card front of one of the cards that we made.
This is the inside of the card that we made.Thankyou to Lisa Bullock for a great tutorial on how to make the insert pop up without buying the pop up cuts. You can see her tutorial here.
The kids had fun putting their dresses together.
Tomorrow I will show what the boys made instead of the dresses.
