Learn how to make an origami popup book, follow my step by step instructions. This book opens up into 4 sections like a concertina book.

The final book will measure 5 x 5 cm plus the cover might be wider.

I am not the best at creating ‘pop up’ things to go inside, check out my blog post for more ideas and how to make pop up objects, and also find the crease pattern under the video.

You will need:

Inside:
· 1 sheet of 20 x 25 cm paper
Download the crease pattern here: coming soon

Cover:
· 1 sheet of 20 x 20 cm paper
· Ribbon or thread
· Glue

The ratio for the inside is 4 by 5. So you could use 30 x 35 cm which would make the book about 8 x 8 cm…. or smaller, 15 x 18.7 cm which would be very small maybe 3.5 x 3.5 cm!

Here are some ideas and also some info on how you might get pop up objects into your book.

My sister is homesick for the old family home. I took pictures of the walls and floor in the rooms and arranged them onto the paper before I printed the template. This made a small pop-up book of our house for her and she was very pleased. Thank you for the idea and the help!

Hi Chrissy, I’m making this pop-up card thingy for my sisters birthday, can I make this from an A4 paper, and if not, what size should I cut it to?

I really love this! I just started making folding houses to bring out with my daughter. She plays with them with her little figures. It would be so great if there was a template with the house furniture etc. drawn on it to color!

I love this. Unfortunately on my one the inside pages stick out the front of the cover and I’m not sure what I am doing wrong. ?
