The Pocket Paper Engineer: How to Make Pop-Ups Step-by-Stepby Carol Barton
Synopses & Reviews
A pop-up how-to book with do-it-yourself models and step-by-step instructions. This interactive how-to book offers hours of creative fun! Learn to design your own pop-up cards and pages in a lively format filled with pull-out patterns, design tips, and assembly and production techniques.
Elegant and accessible, this interactive handbook teaches crafters of all ages how to create kinetic paper art. The projects are complete with examples, formulas, and the essential instruction that allows them to be constructed directly from the book with simple materials on hand: paper, scissors, and glue. Pop-ups are grouped by type—box or triangle—and as the chapters progress, the techniques are combined and layered for more dramatic effects. With its thorough explanations and inspiring ideas, this book will bring color and motion to crafters cards, scrapbooks, and invitations.
