YOUR MISSION

Postby jvcc » Tue Apr 17, 2012 1:22 am

Should you choose to accept it, is to offer advice to me on how I might going about making a pop-up book. My friend is getting married and since I met her while we were both working at a childcare center I might make her a pop-up version of the story of her life and marriage. I imagine I'll probably just head to a store and look for paper and coloring tools but if anyone's attempted it before or knows what should be used it would be immensely helpful.

I've never done something so ambitious as a pop up book. But these step-by-step guides seem neat: http://www.robertsabuda.com/popmakesimple.asp http://www.popularkinetics.com/making_page.html

Good luck!

I also don't know the first thing about making a pop-up book but it sure sounds fun!! Let us know how it turns out. Take pictures if practical.

I'd say the best course of action would be to buy a couple at Goodwill or some other place where you can get them for very low cost. Then take them apart and reverse-engineer them.

Well spambot may be a-spammin', but I do wonder how that pop-up book came out for jvcc.

The pop-up part did not come to fruition (thanks for reminding me, jony33), but I did paint my friend and her now-husband a storybook with themselves as the characters. I got a nice thank you note.
