I’m looking for websites / generators / software (MacOS) / instructions for creating pop-up cards. I would like to learn that. Does anyone have any recommendations / sources?
I would be very happy to receive hints / tips / tricks.
I make a bunch of them.
This was the best resource I found: https://www.amazon.com/Pop-Up-Book-Step-Step-Instructions/dp/0805028846
Plus Paul Jackson’s website: http://foldingtechniques.com/folding-techniques
Search for ‘kirigami templates’ on google and kirigami on youtube.
I’ve got a ton of books on technique, and a bunch of pop-up books to learn how things work.
Matthew Reinhart is probably the best designer of pop-ups out there. https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/entity/author/B001IGLXMO - his Lego book and The Jungle Book are amazing and teach you a lot. I bought a couple of each and dissected one of each to learn from.
I make a few cards for family, etc., but my non-biz hobby is paper craft architecture - classic designs from people like designs like Frank Lloyd Wright’s
I started with this book, then went out on my own: https://www.amazon.com/Frank-Lloyd-Wright-Paper-Models/dp/1786270064
Thanks for the links. I will check that. Looks promising. “Kirigami” technique. Learned something again…
another option is a commercial program, Pop-up Designer Pro which I recall is not particularly expensive, nor sophisticated. It’s beyond my (un)artistic talents, however, which leaves it abandoned.
Thank you, I found this software before, but it s windows only. I’m using MacOS.
