Onion Pop-UP

This is my first attempt at a pop-up book. It has the quote on the end sheets of the book. "Life is like an onion, you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep." Carl Sandberg

Then the center of the book has 8 layers of translucent paper in smaller and smaller shapes. I sewed them together in the center and then glued the largest "onion" shape to the sides of the book. Even though it does not have a lot of color, I think it is kind of perky. It was fun to make anyway, the things I do to amuse myself and use some calligraphy!
