Summer Fun Pop-Up Album

By Vera Shelemekh


“This album will keep the best moments of summer vacation and pop up techniques make it possible to create inside any 3D object related to travel and sea.

The album is 8x8in with four spreads and four pop up constructions made of Sun Kissed paper.



There is a small 3D sailboat with best friends inside on the first spread. 



Pull the stripes on both pages of the second spread and the small funny turtles will be crawling along the seashore )



The lighthouse in the third spread is absolutely real



Have you ever traveled by balloon? I did although by a pop-up paper balloon. It was sooo fun)







In the video tutorial, you will find how to make the boat from the first page. It’s as easy as 1,2,3.

  • Cut people figures from the photos and insert them into 3D constructions to make the scene more real.

  • Pop up constructions work only on folds. Bend album spreads in the middle.

  • Use metal, wooden and fabric elements but make sure they are not too heavy for the construction.
