I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I finally got around to making a matchbox sized book, something I had been wanting to do for a while. The outside of the matchbox is uncluttered and simple, but the inside is kinda neat. (Also very easy to do.)



The book inside the matchbox:











The faces of the Cheshire cats spin around:



The pop-ups throughout the book are made the same way- an image is folded in three places and glued on the pages. That's it.

Cut out your image and make a fold along the center. Fold in the two ends:



Glue one end to page:



And apply glue to other folded end:



Close the book and hold, hold, hold.



So easy!



That is a ton of pictures for such a wee thing!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

The kitten faces are dangling on strings and can turn around to show more kitten faces? Get outta here! Awesome.

Wonderful little pop-up Wonderland book!  I haven't made one in years, but I agree that tiny books are great fun.  The spinning Cheshire cat discs are particularly cool, as I've never seen that kind of element used with a pop-up before now.

Imagine if libraries had nothing but wee books like that, they'd be able to stock like ten times as many!  People that need large-print books would not be fans though! Cheesy
