Synopsis

Pop-up A Paper Engineering Master Class by Ruth Wickings

This is a step-by-step guide to paper engineering, with everything you need to create your very own pop-up masterpiece. From simple folds to pull-tabs and noise-makers, this interactive masterclass contains fifteen key techniques of paper engineering and provides a unique and exciting introduction to making pop-ups. Simply press out the ready-to-assemble pieces and follow the clear instructions to create four separate spreads with a fire-breathing dragon, a fairy tale castle, Frankenstein and an elaborate jungle scene. Pre-cut pieces with double-sided tape already attached means that there's no need for scissors or glue!
