3 year old BD Card: Giraffe with an Expanding Neck

I made this card for my granddaughter's 3rd Birthday.  When you want to impress a 3 year old it helps that the card is interactive.

This card is actually easier to make that it looks. You cut the paper long-ways [4.25 x 11] and fold at the half-way mark [at 5.5"] and then fold the front back up half-way [at 2.75"].  Then cut white pieces to fit each of the 3 panels and make your giraffe. 

The Giraffe is mostly made of circles and ovals. Super easy to assemble. I used the Word Window punch for his legs and the ears are the wings of the bird from the Bird Builder Punch

Do you like the Balloons?  Again, for a 3-year old you need the details. The balloons are circles and for the tab of the balloons I used the feet of the Owl on the Owl Builder Punch. Its kind of fun putting different pieces together like this. And whats more important is that my granddaughter liked it. This was a fun card for her and she spent a lot of time folding and unfolding the giraffe.
