    • Sculpture II
      Pop-up Postcards
    • Postcards
    • What are postcards?
      When people travel they send notes and cards home to the loved ones they left behind
      A classic line from these postcards is, “Wish You Were Here” along with beautiful photos or drawings of the location
    • Postcard Examples
    • Pop-ups
    • What is a pop-up card/book?
      contains one or more pages such that a 3D structure rises up when a page is opened
      pop-up is often applied to any 3D or movable book or card, although this moveable art may include flaps, pull-tabs, pop-outs, pull-downs, and more
    • Pop-up Examples
    • Pop-up Postcards “Wish I Were Here”
    • Your Activity
      You will create a pop-up postcard based on the idea of “Wish You Were Here” postcards
      Except, your card will be mailed to yourself and be a “Wish I Were Here” postcard in an envelope

    • What You’ll Do:
      Brainstorm a list of “I Wish I Were Here” locations…dream-like tropical vacations or mundane living rooms (Worksheet #1)
      Find 5 examples of pop-ups or moveable books/cards. (Worksheet #2)
      Find 5 examples of images for the location you wish you were (Worksheet #3)
      Focus inspiration on place you wish you were and incorporate different pop-up techniques you’ve researched into your own card
    • What You’ll Do:
      Design and plan your own pop-up postcard.
      Look at your own research and sketch the pop-up card from at least 3 different viewpoints (Worksheet #4)
      Consider several different elements and mechanisms to make your pop-up unique and entertaining.
    • What You’ll Do:
      Participate in a demonstration on making pop-ups.
      Each student may have different mechanisms
      You may need to work through some of your own technical challenges based on your own design
      Practice your design on printer paper and keep this as a template and guide for your final card.
    • What You’ll Do:
      Create your final pop-up card using heavy paper and construction paper
      You can add text, drawings, painting, etc. or keep it as a paper sculpture only
      Participate in a demonstration on creating unique envelopes
      Create an envelope for your card…and maybe even a stamp!
    • Tips:
      Dream…where do you wish you were?
      The size and format are up to you...but you’ll have to plan based on your designs.
      Try several different practice designs and mechanisms.
      Carefully plan, check and re-check your design…if it doesn’t work, it’s not really a pop-up!

      Complete Worksheet #1 – “Wish I Were Here” Brainstorming
      Complete Worksheet #2 – Pop-up Inspiration
      Complete Worksheet #3 – “Wish I Were Here” Inspiration
