Vintage Pop-up Cards
Making your Own Timeless TreasuresBook - 2007
Holiday cards, sweetheart cards, humorous cards: they're all "popping up" in this charming vintage collection. Warmly colored, and richly adorned with lace, beads, satin, and feathers, there's nothing like them in the stores! These elaborate pre-1923 classics are not only beautiful in and of themselves; when disassembled, they also form the basis for 25 brand-new projects. After learning in detail exactly how these dimensional treasures are put together--the tools and techniques, the basics of construction, and the most authentic embellishments--you're armed with the inspiration to create your own. Each project includes a photo of the card in its original form, images of every element in the card to photocopy or cut out, and instructions for rebuilding and redecorating your masterpiece.
