Make you this beautiful popup card


50 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Aug 13, 2016

The Origami Popup Cards I craft follow a design from a book, but are each unique in their colors and the patterns I add to them. I use heavy-weight cardstock for the designs and thread to attach them to the card. I use combinations of velum, opalescent paper, origami paper, foil, and various designs to help hide the strings and other parts of the card.

I will trace, cut, and assemble the Camelia origami popup card design from this book by Masahiro Chatani:

The finished card will include artistic backing of some form (see photos) to cover string on 180-degree card designs and to cover spacing on 90-degree card designs.

Choose a background color, a petal color, and a center color for the flower. I will embellish the outside with colors similar to those chosen. This is necessary to cover the strings that hold the card together.

Training & Qualifications

I have been making popups from this book for twenty years. I am a perfectionist with great attention to detail. I have made this particular card at least 20 times.

Here is a time lapse video of me assembling this popup for a Simbi user:

Availability & Preferences

Not really applicable. Once we decide on a card, I will make it within a week using available time. Depending on how focused I get, the card takes me from two to four hours to complete.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
