The Secret Society of Paper Cuts - New Book!

Here is a small preview of the new Crankbunny How-To book called
The Secret Society of Paper Cuts.

The book is filled with a bunch of ridiculous little stories and crafty paper project chapters of fun. Learn and understand how to make pop up cards, paper puppet dolls and mechanical paper toys. Yes, its that JAM PACK full of fun and nerdy paper knowledge (with tons of templates… and you know we all love templates).

The book is now up for preorder and preview at http://www.secretsocietyofpapercuts.com !

June 15th is the main release date for the book. On June 15th, I’ll be making a more formal yell throughout the internet then. The digital PDF version will be available on June 15th too - along with a video flip book of the book.

This is the first public release of a SSoPC book. The journal happens to be chronicle by Sir Noah Darners. He lost a finger due to a paper cut injury. The Secret Society of Paper Cuts ( SSoPC ) is an imaginary group of people who explore the world while documenting paper craft techniques.

No monkeys were harmed in the making of the book (though a few were required to wear a pretty dress or two). Handmade, printed and published in the good ‘ol USA.

Everyone loves a makeover - even pop up greeting cards!

Nothing wrong with a little updating and finessing of a pop up card that is awesome — but could be even MORE awesome with tiny tweaks based on buyer input!** This winter I updated the very popular Butterfly pop up card.

image

This pop up card is of a garden with a beautiful butterfly that flaps and flies when you pull a tab back & forth. The tab is a small hinged leaf which turns out. The largest leaf folds out to a white area where one can write something special.

It is pretty much the same card - but I added some more garden artwork to the card. I also fixed some of the mechanical glitches that occur when having a pop up card with delicate moving paper parts.

This standard greeting size (A7 5x7) popup card is handmade. It also now has a new emblem on the envelope with space for writing.

**Trust me, I totally take into consideration suggestions and dare I even mention complaints about my cards from customers. I also tend to notice how folks use the card, who it mostly gets sent to (you all tell me - and I love it) and what sort of folks are into it.
