Fortune Cookie Pop Up

"Suppose you can get what you want..."

I had a lot of fun with this one! I was especially fond of this piece because the format was like that of a picture book. Sure it's only 4 pages but... nevermind that!
There was a sense of thrill every time I finished gluing all the layers and pieces of a spread together and the page was complete. So so fun! Cutting out the pieces took a very, very long time especially because of the windows, but somehow it was annoying and fun at the same time. I always get a strange sense of enjoyment out of doing tedious work.. probably because they're somewhat mindless.. and therefore soothing?

Here's my favorite piece from this pop up. Didn't get much spotlight because that spread is horrible and I hate to show it :-x but..but.. he's too cute.
