Our customer reviews
I personally love to make cards. I find that adding a personal touch to birthday, Easter and Christmas cards is just down right FUN. With this book you have simple and I MEAN simple instructions to make your flat cards say even more. Yes, I know you can go and buy a five dollar card and send it, but this book can help you turn a few pieces of paper into a wonderful card that even your mom will ask you if you were abducted by aliens (lol). I really like the little cone card where it's like a little birthday hat popping out of the card....and how you can change it up to be a witch hat....'cause we all know that my alter-ego :0) Over all this is a great beginner book for anyone wanting to start in the pop up world or those of you wanting a retro turn back. Great step by steps.show moreby BJ
