I want to use this opportunity to put in a small plug for a website a good friend of mine has started. His name is Rich Chen and he is a very talented fellow. He’s a great engineer, and very clever artist, and he is particularly talented at what would be called “paper arts.”
In particular, he is really good at making pop up cards. He recently started up a website called creativepopupcards.com to showcase some of his talent and his work.
To give you an idea of what I’m talking about, take a look at this youtube video below. You can see the cards he’s made at this website, or at his Youtube channel. He provides examples of his amazing creations as well as detailed information, tutorials, and templates on how to make them yourselves.
This type of papercrafting is an excellent way to impress your kids, your wives, heck impress anyone really, if you even want to give someone a card. It’s also just a good way to spend some time with your kids making an amazing creation that they’ll be proud of.
