Fresh from the printing press; adorable random pop-up card. I left the banner in the middle blank for a short message. I hand carved the cute kokeshi doll in the middle and used wooden blocks to spell out 'cheers' in different languages.
This is one of those projects without a particular reason or rhyme. I just wanted to carve something cute and Japanese inspired and thought a pop-up card would be fun. I do so love paper engineering.

I attended a book arts workshop last week with a really awesome instructor who showed us how to make a slipcover and mini hand-sewn pamphlets (books?) to slide into the slipcover. I then took it home and Steampunked the heck out of it just because. and here we have the fabulous result. any more decoration and you probably couldn't tell it's a box.
