Synopsis

This title includes 55 practical projects including step-by-step folds. You can learn the mechanics of making your own pop-up gift cards with this collection of practical stage-by-stage techniques and projects. It is suitable for beginners and experienced paper engineers. You can make greetings cards for all occasions, including an angel card for Christmas, a fun 'hole in one' card for a golf fanatic, a delightful cupcake for a special birthday, intricate floating hearts for your Valentine, or a beautiful congratulations card with a pop-out champagne bottle. Every technique is described with clear instructions and accompanied by helpful step-by-step photographs to enable you to achieve success. You can adapt the projects to create your own designs. It includes advice on choosing the appropriate card and paper, as well as a guide to materials and techniques. Home-made greetings cards are satisfying to make and wonderful to receive. This book shows you how to use paper-engineering skills to create movable and pop-up cards that will delight the lucky recipients.

It opens with a brief introduction to making pop-up cards, followed by an invaluable guide to materials and techniques, as well as advice for common problems. The projects begin with simple folds, such as A and V folds, and move on to more complicated techniques, such as tab-held shapes. Card ideas put the folds to use, and you can create your own unique designs too. With 500 stunning photographs, this is both a practical and inspirational volume for craft lovers.
