DIY Pop-Up Photos
|Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3|
Flat pack, flat hair, flat soda. Flat out yuck.
Nothing good ever comes with just one level so it’s time for your photos to aim higher.
Step up and give your photos depth with a quick stack, a fold and a pop.
Pop-up photos make sweet keepsake gifts and will make any desk/wall/shelf look great.
Feel that? Another dimension awaits! (oohhh-oohhhh-hhoooh)
WHY IT’S COOL
You are giving your photos depth and a unique new look. So literally, it’s awesome on multiple levels!
- 3 or 4 Prints of the Same Photograph (depending how deep you want to go)
- Cutting Knife
- Cutting Mat
- Double Sided Tape
Step 1: Cut It Out
Got it? Now, leave one print as is (don’t touch!), cut the 2nd around the part you want in the midground and the 3rd around the part you want in the foreground.
Step 2: Fold
Fold in the ends towards the middle, then fold the ends of those ends towards the outside like a concertina/accordian. Phew, you still with us?
Step 3: Tape
Step 4: Stick
Step 5: Stacks On
Step 6: Stacks On Higher
Whoa! Three levels up dude!
Step 7: Frame it
TAKING IT FURTHER
- Add STUFF between the layers
- Use a combination of black and white & color photos
- Try layering 2 or more different photos for more mind boggling awesomeness
