Dragonfly: a Wooden Pop-Up Box

Happy to share the final result of my latest project! Dragonfly: a Wooden Pop-Up Box. :) What started as an idea last year finally came to this design.

Re: Clear tape

That looks like something I was looking for. I also found some crystal clear tape in a local shop but it was that “no scissors needed” tape with jagged edges for ripping. That doesn’t look nice so I think I’m giving this one a try too.

Thanks!

Re: Clear tape

Yes thats a great tip, thank you! Never thought of that. I’m going to give that a try and let you know if it helped. I was thinking of tape because it’s easier to handle but this way, I would create my own tape. Will take some extra time but I think it’s worth it. It’s not that bad to see the edges ...

Re: My thematic showcase

Beautiful display and nice theme!

I’ve seen Les Avions in real once and I was impressed! Reminded me of the foam toy planes I had when I was a kid. David Hawcock’s Davinci book is also on my list of books I would like to add to our collection.

Re: Clover box heart pop-up

Thank you! I’m going to work on that tutorial. But you’re right. It’s not that difficult and also a fun build. You can see the base on the picture that I use for two small V folds I’ve attached later in opposite directions. Those v-folds are the mechanism where I’ve attached the clover leaves on. Th...

Re: Clear tape

Thank you for your reply Jolle! I’m looking for quality clear tape because of a project (or should I say experiments?) where I work with acrylic sheets. The tape also functions as a hinge so I can’t replace it with glue. Here you have an example of one of the experiments: https://i.imgur.com/GTVROyu...
