Cupcake turtle steps

  • Start by cutting out the green cardstock into two long strips for legs, circle shape for the head and also a small strip for the tail as shown in the image.
  • Using a pen draw the eyes and mouth in the circular shape card stock for making the head. Paste the head on the end of the tail part.
  • Now paste the long strips across forming an “X” shape and fold it in the end to form the legs.
  • Paste two or three cupcake liners together to make it more sturdy. Glue the legs on the inner side of the cup cake liner.
  • Cut two small paper strips and paste it across the cupcake liner. As shown in the picture, put the head tail part through color paper strips.  Now pull in and push out the tail part to see the popping head.

That’s It!! You have created the Popping Head Turtle !!!

    Wow! This is so lovely, Suja. Reminds me of the things my son and I used to make up until a few years ago…craft was so much a part of our life. Sadly, study pressures have replaced it now but we still do have our crafty moments esp during school breaks and holidays.
