The kind of pop-ups we like. Sculpture in a book, pop-ups have always seemed to us like 3-D pieces of art on the page.

So on a rainy day when you're stuck inside, why not try making your own as a fun family activity?

The process is less messsy than say, finger paints, and it involves materials you have around the house: Scissors, paper, a pencil, and glue.

Writer Joan Irvine has created a free step by step guide with accompanying illustrations on her website. It actually looks simple enough for even the least crafty among us to manage.

(Although we wish we could take credit for the images here, they're actually from a book called Blue 2 by a genius pop-up book creator, David A. Carter.)
