Are you ready to go back to school? Pocoyo and his friends are! Get ready with them making this fun craft. Ask an adult for help when meassuring, cutting and sewing up the raffia ribon to make the coolest folder. And don't lose it!
To make this craft, you’ll need:
White A4 construction paper
Colored pencils or markers
Corrugated paperboard or thin cardboard, 50x70 cm.
Places the cursor over each step to learn more details
Print the template on the A4 construction paper and color in the pictures.
Cut out the figures of Pocoyo and Loula.
Fold the paper so that a sheet of paper will fit inside, and leaving a flap to fold down later. Make holes along the two edges with a paper puncher. If both parts of the folded paper fit in the paper puncher you can punch holes in both sides at once and skip directly to Step 6. If not, follow the instructions for Steps 4 and 5.
With a pencil, mark onto the back of the folder where you made the holes in the front.
Now punch holes in the back where you marked them.
Tie the front and back of each side together with the raffia yarn, starting from above (near the flap) and working down, then back up again. The tighter you weave the yarn, the flatter the folder will be and the harder it will be to put the elastic on. But if you want it to be very flat, put the elastic on (Steps 8 and 9) before weaving the sides together with the yarn.
When you reach the end, tie a knot. Repeat the action on the other edge.
Thread one end of the elastic cord into the top back hole on one edge of the folder, through to the inside of the folder. Tie a knot at the end, leaving it inside so it’s hidden.
Bring the cord around to the front and tighten it a bit. Stretch it across the front and around to the back. Introduce the end into the top hole and tie the end into knot inside. The elastic will now be tight on the flap side of the folder.
Turn the folder over and paste Pocoyo and Loula onto the back with white glue. Allow to dry.
