Pop-up Fun

Don’t you think pop-up books are fun? I own 35 of these ingenious books. They are the only thing I actively collect. Whenever I look at these works of art, I am truly amazed at the creative minds that go into making them. After receiving a new pop-up book for Christmas... I looked up the paper artist that created this book, "Peter Pan", and discovered that on his website there is a tab called: MAKE YOUR OWN POP-UPS.

So of course, I have been keeping myself entertained trying to make all the really cute designs using the scrapbook paper I own since I now digitally produce my scrapbooks. The best part is you can download all the patterns and follow along using their step by step instructions.

Here are a few of the cards I have created using this website (sorry a couple of the images are blurry but I love the pig and especially the spider):




Please act surprised if you get one of these pop-up cards in the mail!
