Unique Pop-Up Books For Sale – In Miniature Size.

Well, of course, we have written about miniature books before, but I have found some amazing little and unique pop-up books for sale on Etsy! And I just had to tell you about them 🙂

But you might not know what they are exactly, so let’s explain it a little bit first:

What Are Pop-Up Books?

Pop books are basically books with three-dimensional pages, where parts “come to life”, as a matter of speech.

This gives an even greater experience to the reader when especially important parts of the storyline can be seen in 3D.

Pop-up books are very interesting for children, but adults love them as well. And people who are visually impaired can fÊÊl better what is happening in a book and empathize more with the story.

Behind the making of pop-up books, there is a certain technique that can be learned.

There are plenty of good tutorials on Youtube to make your own, but you can also get (mini) pop-up tutorials on Etsy, digital downloads, (mini) pop-up books that you can color yourself, etc.

We will be diving deeper into 5 stores selling unique pop-up books on Etsy today.

Final Conclusion.

These pop-up mini books and cards definitely seem worth it to give them a try!

  1. Pop up books are a really neat hobby and the product looks beautiful. If I did not know what it was you definitely explained it well. I was wondering what the rating was for in the latest reviews then I sort-of guessed that it is the product rating accompanying the review. That actually shows how people really like those miniature pop up books. This reminds me of an arts and crafts activity I would do with my kids or at school or summer camp. This is really neat and affordable. The only Con you shared was shipping. Is that because you did not find anything else concerning about the product? Or the durability of the product and the complexity of difficulty levels would not be problematic for beginners?

    • Hi Alex,

      They really are neat and so cute, right? About your questions: most of these are downloadable, so you don’t need to worry about shipping 😉

      The difficulty level doesn’t seem to complicated for beginners either, just give it a try and don’t be afraid to share the results? 🙂

      Happy crafting!

  2. I am a “hands-on” Grandma, helping out when my kids are working or have other things going on.  I love to find interesting and educational projects to do with the grandchildren and this looks like a winner!  Since I have a printer and my daughter has a Cricut machine, I feel confident that this is a thing we could accomplish!  And the price of the DIY items are very reasonable so I’m going to give it a try.  Thank you for posting.
