"The Scream" Tunnel Book

I really liked this tatebanko version of Munch's The Scream, but with postage it's something like $17 to get one to my house, and I still would have to put it together.

I did find instructions for a blank tatebanko box but time was ticking away and I just wasn't in the mood to reinvent that thing.

I made a tunnel book instead.

I did a little bit of Photoshop on the back layer to get rid of the screamer and the two little people because I wanted them on the two other layers.

Usually I would put the accordions on the sides, but this one worked better with them on the top and bottom.

Except, it didn't want to stand up, so I made an easel stand and glued it to the back.

Very nice work.
I'm not very familiar with tunnel books, but they remind me of the old fashioned 3d or layered decoupage. Only more fun subject matter. And of course the accordian adds a lot.

If you make a little fold down flap for each accordion fold - equal to its fully extended depth, when it is opened out and the flaps are all in place it will stay popped out like the tatebanko you are imitating!

I just found your blog through SCS and love it! You do some fabulous things with paper and cardstock. I was looking for your Pop-Up Cube, as mentioned in a two-year-old thread on SCS but can't find it. Is it still here please? Thanks!
