When was the last time you picked up a pair of scissors? Was it when you cut open a letter envelope? Or what about that time you cut into that book a few millimeters? But if you think about it, those creaky scissors can be used for fun.

Now how about applying those scissors to something artistic and practical! They can be good friends and a source of magic when you want to make something for yourself or others. With a little wrist action and some paper those rusty scissors can turn little sheets into a bouquet of flowers! They can be used to celebrate or commemorate a special occasion. Or they can add color and beauty to a setting with little more than a traced pattern and some dexterity.

In Simply Precious Pop-Ups paper-crafter Kiyoshi Kikuchi offers up more than 50 easy to follow pop-up card patterns for everyone to enjoy! By simply following his large patterns crafters, young and old, can quickly make fun and attractive cards for any occasion.

Patterns include:

Holiday patterns - New Years, Girls Day, Valentine's, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Christmas

Special occasions - Graduation, Weddings, New Job

More than a dozen Birthday Cards and Seasonal-themed cards!


"I really like this book, it doesn't have sliders, spinners and other fancy effects like some pop-up books. Just very clean designs that are easily accomplished. You may need to practice a bit before trying some of the more intricate designs, but none of them are too intricate. They can be done with your children too as long your children are mature enough to use sharp scissors." - Don't Eat the Paste

Simply Precious Pop-ups is a new book filled with loads of fun do-it-yourself pop up cards... Since my dad loves to golf and Father’s Day is coming up soon I decided to try out the golf bag card. The instructions were easy to follow and the card was quick to make. I needed only a few simple supplies, two ½ sheets of paper, a small pair of sharp scissors and a stylus for scoring. I think my dad will love it!” – CraftGossip.com

"Full-color photos of completed cards are compiled in a gallery at the beginning of the book, so you can browse through this section for ideas and inspiration. Since it's hard to find free kirigami resources online, this book is a great investment for your personal crafting library." - Dana Hinders - About.com
