STEP-BY-STEP PROJECTS TO MAKE AT HOME
Ever wondered how to make a pop-up card? This book is filled with ingenious ideas on how to make cards that wiggle, fly, open out, spin, pop up to form a box and create tunnels. The rising cost of manufactured cards often makes you think, "I wish I could do that myself". Now you can do just that with this attractive guide to producing personally-customised cards. But not just any old cards: 3-D pop-up cards!
There are projects suitable for all occasions throughout the year - Valentine's Day, Halloween, Easter, Mother's Day - as well as celebratory cards for birthdays, parties, anniversaries, weddings, new babies and new homes. Techniques range from very simple to the more complicated. Decorating and illustrating techniques include painting, wax resist, making your own rubber stamps, spray painting, stencilling and collage.
The book outlines what the reader will need and looks at the types of card available and embellishments that can be used to customise, such as sequins, glitter and ribbons. This leads on to 18 projects, complete with ideas for who the card would be suitable for, plus ideas for variations on the same theme - in all, the inspiration to make over 50 cards.
Each project has a list of equipment that will be needed. Step-by-step photography and clear captions then guide the reader through each stage of the project and every project has an attractive photograph of the finished result.
