I haven’t quite met a single soul who isn’t charmed by pop-ups. How couldn’t one be amused when pop-ups give life to all things flat? Here’s a project inspired by the ageless paper crafting technique of pop-ups, applied simply and whimsically to an everyday object. A collection of framed pop-up photographs would make a most thoughtful gift this holiday season.
I had so many beautiful pictures from our camping trip this summer in Yosemite and couldn’t wait to pop-up a few and frame them. For this one example, I used five copies of the same picture, foam adhesive (you can get the foam adhesive dots at craft stores or the roll of foam adhesive tape at hardware stores), and a sharp craft knife.
I would suggest trimming away bits of the background for every layer until you are only left with the foreground elements in the final layer.
How do you do the pop-ups? do you put foam between each layer?
