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.
