In this tutorial, we'll make a pop-up house. The project uses an Adafruit CRICKIT for Circuit Playground Express programmed in MakeCode to make the house fold flat when you blow on it, seeming to disappear before popping right back up!
- Scotch tape
- Double sided tape
- Piece of cardboard (8.5" x 11")
- 2 sheets printer paper
- Bamboo skewer (or wooden dowel or popsicle stick)
This project takes its inspiration from the book The Elements of Pop Up by David A. Carter and James Diaz.
PDFs of their templates are also available online for reference.
We will use two pop-up concepts in the project: the Angle Fold Open Box and the Angle Fold Pyramid (figures 24 and 27 in the book, respectively).
