Fractal Pop Outs

16 Oct

How about this beauty?!

It’s called a Fractal pop out. I’ll pretend I know what that means, but I don’t, which is irrelevant as this is an art lesson and not a Math one.

I saw these for the first time at Defying Gravity and went hunting for some simple instructions. The instructions and printable that I used are here.

It’s seriously easier than it looks. Just fold on the horizontal lines and cut on the vertical lines.

If we can figure it out, there is lots of hope for everyone else. 🙂

For a tiny bit of work they are so impressive. Everyone has commented on them.

From the front they just look like stairs. I just love them!

Give them a go. They’re easy, quick and impressive. And apparently they’re very Mathematical.  If we just cut them out, does that count for Math?

Probably not, huh.

Oh well.

I still love them.  🙂

    Neither of your links work, looks like they just have some extra letters in them. This looks like fun. Did you use cardstock or regular coloured paper?

    The links are finally working. Boy it was a devil of a thing to fix too. Who knows why but every single time I put the correct link in it would add an extra http at the end for good measure. There was no reason why it was doing it. Probably just to mess with me…unless you believe in gremils. But somehow it is now fixed.

    Oh and I just used coloured paper.
