Sophia and The Pop-Up Books

Hello Everyone,

How are you all? Hope you had a good weekend. Here we are again back to the old grinder, working on miniatures and new projects. 

Today I wanted to share with you a small project that I have worked on during my short holidays.  The Two Miniature Pop-Up Books.


Mr. Dickens thought of adding more to his book shop during Christmas time. He wanted to add something completely different that children would love. He added two Pop-Up Books.


Mr. Dickens was inspired by his neighbor Lady Adelaide, 'The Miniaturist' to get these pop up books. One is called 'Dolls' House' which he was sure that Lady Adelaide would love to have and being in the Christmas season he got another called 'Merry Christmas'

Both books came as a flat kit format and I enjoyed making them. The end results are so impressive especially considering the small size of them.

The 'Dolls House' Book is built to have two floors and the whole book has eight rooms.





The 'Merry Christmas' book is much smaller than The 'Dolls' House' book and it has four Christmasy Rooms.





















Here is a small video that I made to show how these cute pop-up books open.


The second Mr. Dickens put these books in the Dickens Book Shop window, a young girl entered the shop to have a closer look at them.

Miss Sophia, a beauty made by my dear friend and doll maker Beverley Senatore. Sophia hasn't made any appearances in Regent Street yet but she was keen to play the part in this story. I wonder where she'll fit in Regent Street. Keep an eye out for her because I am sure that her time will come to shine. 


Miss Sophia fell head over heals in love with the 'Merry Christmas' pop-up book. She definitely looks happy and proud to have it. Mr. Dickens was so pleased with himself that he got these books that he's quite sure that he will be getting more different ones.

That is all for today. I hope you like these new pop-up books. Make sure to keep tuned for the next updates as I have so much to share with you.

Take Care and See You Soon.

Hugs,
