Pupils like to create added dimensions to their own handmade books, booklets or greeting cards. It is a way for them to present their own work in a creative and interesting way. Adding a pop-up feature to a book or greeting card can give it the wow factor. This video shows how to create a house-shaped pop-up feature.
Pupils from middle and senior classes should be well able to create these pop-up features. This could be used as a standalone visual arts lesson or as an added feature to a book or card. All that is needed is paper, card, glue, scissor and some colours. After that, pupils can use their imagination to decorate this pop-up to make it really stand out.
