Color this picture for a two-in-one experience

I was scrolling through Pinterest when a video caught my eye.

I don’t usually like watching videos, but it showed a neat craft where you color one picture, fold it like an accordion and depending on how you look at it, it becomes two pictures.

“I can make that,” I thought.

It took me a little bit to figure out exactly how to merge two pictures into one, but I finally figured it out, and now you can create your own folding double picture simply by printing out our free template. Simply click the photo below.

Once you’ve finished coloring, cut the white edge off and fold the paper like an accordion along the vertical lines.

From one side you can see the deer, and then tilt it the other direction to see the coyote.
