|Steps to Follow:
- Start by covering the entire trifold background in black poster board.
- Cut 3 strips of silver holographic poster board to fit the top of each trifold panel. Create a custom border by cutting a jagged, rock-like edge to the strips. Adhere to the top of the side and center panels.
- Cut larger pieces of silver holographic poster board to fit the widths of each trifold panel. Cut jagged, rock-like edges to each shape and adhere to the bottom edges of each panel creating a cave-like base.
- Using neon poster letters spell out the title in a playful fashion along the top of the center panel.
- Next, spell out the subtitle using silver glitter letter stickers.
- To highlight researched information blocks, cut crystal formation shapes out of neon yellow poster board. Adhere information to these shapes. To diversify how your research information blocks are presented, adhere some information to larger neon yellow rectangles to create colored borders.
- Adhere your information blocks to the trifold.
- Once your information is placed, add the scientific method titles related to your researched information.
- Add imagery to visually complete the panels. Leave a decent amount of space underneath the subtitle for the geode rock crystal feature, which you will learn how to make in a corresponding tip video.
- Add holographic starburst eye-catcher shapes to either side of the center panel drawing your eye into the center where the feature will be placed.
- To add the final bit of sparkle to the trifold before the main attraction, stick clear gems to black space on the side and center panels.
- Trace and cut a hole to house your geode feature, using a paper plate or a template smaller in diameter than the Styrofoam ball. Push the geode feature into the hole. The rigidity of the corrugate should keep the geode elevated and prevent it from slipping through the hole
- Turn on the lights and watch it sparkle!
