DIY Pop Up Cards

DIY Pop Up Cards
Today’s column is by Oh Happy Day contributor Michaela of Bliss! I’ve been seeing a lot of pop-up cards around the web lately, all using very intricate, sometimes complicated folding and glueing techniques. Since I’m really more of the simple-diy-lover, I’ve put together a quick and versatile pop-up card tutorial. The idea is that you can use one basic technique for an endless amount of different pop-up cards. Start with a simple card and fold it in half. Now start crafting the bits and pieces to display in your card. Stick some more balloons, or whatever it is you’re crafting, onto the flaps and voilà – you’re done. In the same way you can also create text cards (Happy Birthday), fields of flowers or rows of trees. All photos by Michaela for Oh Happy Day. Related:  Livres POP UP

Principes de base As a beginner to pop-ups, the V-fold and box fold techniques are likely to be the ones you will be using most. Here is a list of the most common mechanisms used in pop-up creation: - V-Folds: These can be cut and folded directly into the main piece of card, or can be created by adding an additional section of card for the pop-up shape. V-folds are very versatile and are where, simply enough, a V shape is created with the pop-up section. It’s either the folds made in the base card, or the connections between the separate pop-up section and the base card, which produce the ‘V’ shape when the base card is open. - Box folds (also called Interval Stands or Layers): These are created with vertical or horizontal folds and cuts in order to produce 3D box shapes. - Mouth folds: Mostly used to create the effect of an opening and closing mouth. - Tabs and Slots: This is a slightly more complicated mechanism which you can add onto a card to produce a sliding movement.

Make Your Own Pop-Up Book Email Book publishers have recently been embracing the somewhat forgotten genre of children’s pop-up books. This renewed interest seems to have started with David Carter’s ‘One Red Dot,’ and has grown to include last year’s wonderful ‘AB3D‘, a Marvel series (which my son is intent on collecting all of) and various classic (‘Alice in Wonderland‘), educational (Dinosaurs) and fantasy (Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy) titles. But don’t be intimidated by the two paper masters who are mostly responsible for this resurgence, Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhartse. There are very simple steps that you can take in creating your own one-of-a-kind pop-up book. Some of which are illustrated here using images from Sabuda’s website. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The MAKEzine video (below) offers a few minutes of inspiration as designers Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhartse review a few of their upcoming creations.

Rubber Band Pop Up Cube I probably get 2-3 emails a week inquiring about rubber band pop ups. The best book I know on the subject, Up Pops by Mark Hiner, is out of print and there is little information to be found on the Internet. Here is a template, closely modeled on Hiner's design, for the rubber band powered pop up cube. Download PDF. Print on sturdy card stock. Cut on black lines EXCEPT around the rubber band loops. Score on red and green lines. Fold the re-inforcing squares to the back side and glue. Once the glue is dry, cut out around the hooks. Glue the backs of the #2 flaps together, folding on the diagonal green line to make them meet. Do the same for the #3 flaps. Attach a rubber band or loop of elastic thread to one hook. Glue the back of flap 4b to the front of 4f. Glue the back of 6b to the front of 6f. Now comes the fun part. Video directions by Norm. If the thought of making this cube makes you want to run screaming for the hills, you are in luck!
