Create a 3-D magazine by cutting away unwanted items.
A 3-D or three-dimensional magazine is a project assigned to art students during their high school years. The project involves taking an old magazine and cutting away the pages to create a 3-D design. The process is very time consuming and requires patience. Each page is cut individually to create the design. Precision is needed to ensure the design stays intact while cutting through the pages of the magazine. The same magazine will produce a different design depending on the items selected to create the 3-D scene.
1. Thumb through an old magazine and select 8 to 10 objects to create a 3-D picture. Start the selection of pictures with the first picture by finding an object within the bottom 3 inches of the page. The next picture is above the first and within an inch of the first picture. Repeat the process until 8 to 10 objects are chosen. Mark the pages in the magazine. Make sure none of the pictures are directly behind another picture.
2. Open the magazine to the first picture. Visually locate a line from the binding of the magazine to the chosen picture, then off the page. Begin at the binding and cut away the top portion of the first page. Repeat the process, cutting one page at a time. Stop cutting when the second picture page is reached.
3. Flip the cut portion of the magazine to the left. Locate the second picture. Visually locate a line from the binding of the magazine to the picture, then off the page. Begin at the binding and cut away the top portion of the page. Repeat the cutting process one page at a time. Stop cutting when the third picture page is reached. Repeat the process until through the rest of the magazine.
4. Close the magazine upon completion of all cutting. Notice the three-dimensional appearance of the chosen objects.
