It’s great to receive a handmade card and even greater to make one, especially when it opens to reveal a delightful 3D scene created with pop-ups.
In this class you will find out how to combine papers and collage with pop-up techniques to make a delightful little world out of paper. It can be Thanksgiving, Birthday or Holiday themed or just a unique card for a unique person.
You can make one or more and after this class you’ll be able to make them for every occasion.
