Fun with Pop Up Words

I need a better header for this blog. I thought of using these pop up words but can't seem to photograph it properly.

Oh well, it was an interesting experiment.

If you want to try this, pick a font that has good flat parts on the top and bottom of each letter (I used 72pt Showcard Gothic). I think I should have stretched the font a little, vertically, too.

There's a detailed tutorial on Instructables, although I had to reload some of the pages a couple times to get the pictures to show up.

I really like that photo. Is it maybe the size that's giving you trouble? You can resize it to fit blogger. If that's the difficulty, I'd be happy to offer my limited knowledge, 'cause this is LOVELY! :0) mel
