Earlier I ordered a book about making pop-up books. I unearthed it as I was trying to clear off the dining room table and decided to get my feet wet, so to speak, by giving it a go. I found that it is both more simple and more complicated than I thought. On the table is my first attempt at getting the concept. So far, so good. Then as is my custom, I decided I had it down and tried to do a couple of things on my own. The flower is the result of this fantasy. After that I decided to go back to the drawing board. Perhaps page 2 will enlighten me enough to move on. It's another way to manipulate paper, which is certainly a recurring obsession of mine. The book shows some amazingly beautiful abstract creations done by experts. They are a little like the origami tesselations, but cutting the paper is the main tool instead of folding.
Oh boy, another toy.
