Pop Up Books How To

how do you make a pop-up book.

after watching ENCHANTED for the 50th time, i wanted to make a pop-up book using castles and art nouveau like they did. i want to make one for my french 2 class next year because you get to make storybooks in that class i’ve heard. does anyone know by any chance some really good books on how to make one or some...

The best thing I can tell you is to check out Robert Sabuda’s web site. He is renowned for his pop-up books, and his web site ( has a little tab that says “explore pop-ups.” There, he has different avenues to explore, like making your own simple pop ups (I like the Frankenstein one). One of the avenues is for “pop-up books.” He lists a whole bunch of books you could go to in order to learn more about how to make them, if his simple pop-ups list doesn’t help you. The more complex ones that Mr. Sabuda knows how to create can make your eyes cross, but it’s still interesting.

hey, i’m looking for a couple of tutorials on the web that show me how to make pop up books.

i’m look for more complex ideas, NOT the really cheesy pop up card ideas (ie, the overdone “duck opening its beak” gag, etc). Something that emphasizes “things are not as they seem”, as in the underlying theme in Macbeth? Maybe like this…

There sure are. I googled pop up books tutorial and once you got past the pop up blocker groups, there were several ones that looked interesting.Here’s one from Japan—

How to pop up the address book when composing email.

I used to be able to just double click “To”, but suddenly it no longer works, what’s the problem?

As it opens in another window check that you have pop up unblocked, but that should not be the problem. If not try to click on “insert addresses” right next on top to “TO”, the same window should open. If not right click on it to “open on link in new tab”.There’s many ways to access your address book.

How to make pop up books and how to attach the pop up pages.

after making the pop ups how do you attach it together?

Last year my daughter created a simple pop-up book as a presentation book report. It worked very well. I’ve listed links to two of the sites she used for ideas. A search for pop-up books or pop-up pages will allow you to find even more ideas and inspiration.

how to make a full landscape POP UP PAGE in BOOK.

i need to make a page for my scrap where i can put my BIRTH CERTIFICATE and when every time I open my BOOk the CERTIFICATE POP UP FULLY LANDSCAPE ! CAN u help me how to make??? please !!!

Take two 9ร—12 pieces of construction papers and fold them into halves. Now take one paper and locate a dot at the center of the folded edge.Draw a line from the marked dot to the outer edge of the paper.Using a pair of scissors cut through the line, starting from the folded edge. Fold back the flaps created by cutting. Fold them back such that they form two triangles.Open the flaps again and also open the whole page. Now, hold the paper in such manner that it appears like a tent. Place your finger at the top of the triangle and carefully push it down so that the triangle is pushed through to the other side of the paper.Now put your finger at the bottom of the paper triangle and repeat the same thing. You will notice that top and bottom triangles will be pushed out to form a mouth inside the card.Whenever you open or close the card, the mouth will simultaneously open and close and it will seem that itโ€™s talking.You can now draw a person or an animal or even a monster around the mouth and glue the inside and outside pages together. But make sure you do not apply any glue in the area with pop-up mouth. Your cover for your book is ready.Now you can add pages to your cover. Decide how many pages you want to include and fold each paper into halves. Put glue inside the folded edges of the paper and attach the pages together. Allow them to dry.Select your story and pen it down in these pages, only when dried properly. While writing the stories on the inside pages, you can leave spaces for adding pop-up characters.Now cut out interesting characters for your story and decide which characters will be pasted on each page. Make sure to leave some space at the bottom of the characters.Carefully glue these characters into the story. Make sure you fold the bottom of each character and then add a little glue on it. Press them firmly so that they get properly fixed. Continue the process for other characters on other pages of the book.

Where can I find out how to make complicated pop up books or paper engineering.

I am 15 and i have set myself the difficult task of making a pop up book, this needs to be a complicated book as it is not for children but for my art coursework so i do not want childish simple pop ups please help me I’m really struggling

First, find a copy of Luke Herriot’s “The Packaging and Design Templates Sourcebook”. Amazon has it, but if you have access to a college or art center library, try that first. It’s not about books, specifically, but it has tons of interesting paper-folding ideas and techniques that can get you started, plus a CD of templates so you can print them and try making them.Then, if you’re really serious about paper arts, I suggest finding a local art organization and taking a class. In the city where I live, we have a great book arts center, and even just going to look at their galleries has given me tons of ideas. They teach classes on several book-making topics every month, from paper folding to binding to printing.Better yet, websites for such places often have many useful links to arts centers in other areas (so you can find one near you), and also links to websites that can teach you different book arts techniques.Check out some art fairs too – you’ll likely see some inspiring ideas and get a chance to talk with the artists about how they did it and where some good resources are.Good luck!

Does anyone know any paper crafts that don’t look tacky and childish. Or how to make pop up books.

I am doing an art project in which I want to change the expressions of the person in my project. I was thinking of putting velcro on the backs of eyes and lips, and having different moods and emotions but I think this would look tacky. Is there some kind of folding technique I could do, where I could pull down the…

How to Make a Pop-upThis is an excerpt from my book How to Make Pop-ups, written by me and illustrated by Barbara Reid. Follow the instructions and drawings below to make a talking mouth pop-up card.1 Take two pieces of paper, each 21.5 cm x 28 cm (8.5 in. x 11 in.). Fold each paper in half. Put one aside. 2 On the other, put a dot in approximately the centre of the folded edge.————————————–…3 Draw a 5 cm (2 in.) line from the dot towards the outer edge. 4 Starting at the folded edge, cut on the line.————————————–…5 Fold back the flaps to form two triangles. 6 Open the flaps again. Open the whole page.————————————–…7 Now comes the tricky part! Hold your paper, so that it looks like a tent. Put your finger on the top triangle and push down. Pinch the two folded edges of the top triangle, so that the triangle is pushed through to the other side of the paper. 8 Put your finger on the bottom triangle and do the same thing. The top and bottom triangles will now be pushed out to form a mouth inside the card. When you open and close your card, the mouth will look like it is talking. When your card is closed it will look like this:————————————–…9 Draw a monster, a person or an animal around your mouth. 10 Glue the inside and outside cards together. Do not apply glue in the area of the pop-up mouth. You now have a cover for your card.————————————–…Other ideas:Your card can also be a centrepiece for a table, if you use heavy paper. Draw a jagged line, instead of a straight line, for the talking mouth. Your figure will now have teeth. Draw a head and body around the mouth. Make sure the body is wider than the head, so that your figure can stand. Cut around the figure’s head and body to make a centrepiece.
