    Step 1:

    Blog, 3D father's day gift idea, step one

    Begin by sketching out the shape of a heart - remember not to make it too big as you have to fit other words on the page!

    Then, using the scissors, carefully cut the heart out.


    Step 2:

    Cut your red tissue paper into lots of small pieces and scrunch them up into little balls. Then, using the glue stick, stick the tissue paper balls onto the surface of your heart shape.


    Step 3:

    From the card, cut two long strips about 2cm wide.

    Place them over each other to create an 'L' shape.

    Then proceed to fold them over each other alternatively until there is no paper left to fold and you've got a zig-zaggy origami spring. Glue the loose ends on both sides of the spring together so that it doesn't fall apart.

    After attaching your heart onto the coloured A4 paper, use the coloured pens to write your message to Dad. Be sure to use bold colours and outline in black to make sure the words stand out.

    Slide the completed craft into an A4 Single Gallery Frame and hang on the wall in all its springy glory - dad will be sure to '<3' it!
