If you've ever seen a pop-up book or card, you know how much fun they can be: figures come alive by rushing out toward you; arms wave, mouths open and close, and animals leap back and forth! With the help of this easy-to-follow book, you'll soon be creating lots of entertaining projects — from a simple pop-up valentine, an opening flower, a moving trapeze, and a fire-breathing dragon, to your own pop-up zoo. Step-by-step instructions, accompanied by helpful black-and-white line drawings, show how to create folds, layers, coils, springs, tab mechanisms, and revolving wheels. There are more than 30 projects to choose from — and no patterns to trace or photocopy. (All you'll need are common materials such as paper, glue, scissors, ruler, pencils, and crayons.) Loaded with ideas for birthday cards, gifts, school projects, and more, this handy book offers great ideas for three-dimensional fun.
