As many of my friends know, I love pop ups.  Here is a short post about my process.

I start by creating a mock up with plain white card stock.  Sometimes I scribble some color on it in pencil in order to help me visualize the final piece.

Next, I take careful measurements and make notes.

Then I cut the pieces of the pop up out with the paper I use in the final pop up.  Cut, glue, assemble, and send in the mail to one of my mail art friends!
