How To Tuesday | Magic Books & Paper Toys
Everyone loves a good book, but what’s better than one you’ve made by hand? And not just any straightforward book, but simple pop-up books, flip books, magic pamphlets, pop-up maps, and accordions! Esther K. Smith, author of How to Make Books, unlocks the secrets of making tricky book forms even if you’ve never worked with paper before.
While some of these 25 projects can be made by kids with a little help from mom or dad, all are designed with the adult in mind—the adult who’s a kid at heart! With step-by-step directions and charming illustrations, a few carefully placed cuts and an array of folds and twists almost magically become a colorful, multidimensional book.
