3d kawaii cactus

This project is intended for children ages 6+. Who doesn't love a cute cactus? This adorable dimensional paper cactus is easy to care for and will look great forever!
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the shapes.

Step 2

Trace the cactus pattern(s) onto cardstock and cut out. Cut the slits on the dotted lines.

Step 3

Decorate the paper cactus with markers. Draw a cute kawaii face on the front.

Step 4

Slide the two pieces together by inserting one of the slits into the other.

Step 5

Glue pom-poms onto the cactus to represent cactus blossoms. Set aside.

Step 6

To create a pot to set the cactus in, cut a piece of foam about 2" x 6" [5 cm x 15.2 cm]. Decorate the foam side with markers. Turn it over so the paper backing is facing up. Tear off about 1" [2.5 cm[ of the paper backing from one end. Form a circle and press the sticky end to the foam to secure the circle.

Step 7

Fill the "pot" with Model Magic® to hold the cactus.

Step 8
Carefully press the cactus into the Model Magic®.
