From whimsical animal shapes to more sophisticated and intricate flower designs, pop-ups can add a sense of fun and elegance to any occasion.

Each technique is followed by a selection of projects that demonstrate its use, so you can build up skills and become confident enough to begin making their own pop-up designs.

The 30 inspirational projects included offer a range of card designs for birthdays, weddings, and celebrations, as well as ornamental projects to display or to give as gifts.
