Some days are special

Remember the terrible pop-up chaos on my desk? Well, I’m happy to share the result of many planning and working hours – a small pop up greeting-book (I think I just made up a new term… it’s a greeting card presented as a book).
I used several pop up techniques and mechanisms, some for the first time. In order to make it all work together, I kept the color scheme and styling pretty homogeneous throughout the book. I used greenish-blue, gray and white card stock and some gray printed “washi” tape. I first drew all the silhouettes on paper and then carefully cut them out with an exacto knife.

I made this book for my mother’s birthday. It tells the story of a girl, who chases stars, just so she can make a shiny garland out of them and give it to her mom.












There’s even a video:

Love you mom!๐Ÿ™‚
