Introduction: Zigzag Pop-Up

Here's a quick pop-up that only takes a few minutes and has a nice effect. All you need is a printer (preferably color) and something to cut with.

Original design by Masahiro Chatani.

Step 1: Print Out This File

Print!

Step 2: Cut Along the Black Lines

My preference is for an Xacto, but whatever works for you.

Step 3: Blue Valleys and Red Mountains

Fold in along the blue lines and out along the red lines so that you have blue valleys and red mountains.

Step 4: Enjoy the Pattern

Make sure that the folds are nice and clean. When you're all done you should be able to flatten it in on itself to make the folds more solid.

Now carefully stand it up and enjoy the zigzagging pieces of paper.
