Famous in Japan for his three-dimensional pop-up art, Seiji Tsukimoto now offers the secrets (well, actually clear, easy-to-follow instructions) to making amazing globe-shaped paper artworks using only paper and scissors. These 3-D spheres feature images, intricate patterns, and even messages like “Happy Birthday.”¬†Each folds down to a flat surface, and when pressed at both ends, it shifts back to a sphere. The projects feature a variety of themes, each shaped as a show-stopping sphere: landscapes, nature scenes, animals, text, and more. The designs use small, medium, or large spheres, and as you master them, they can be varied. Included are not only reusable patterns, but also a ready-to-cut copy of six designs, supplied on cardstock at the back of the book. Enjoy creating unlimited paper globes to display, to offer as gifts, and to share greetings in a handcrafted, surprising way. This ingenious design method is easy enough for beginners and versatile enough to challenge advanced paper artists.
