Crown and Chandelier Card 3D

Inspired by: Yuichi Miyoshi

I could not find the Crown design in any of his books but have seen it across the internet.
I designed this as an A7 card for an upcoming birthday in the family.

The chandelier card is from his book:
Shiawase Okuru
Editor: Best Treasure

Rose Pop-Up Card

Inspired by Yuichi Miyoshi
Rose design from his book: Shiawase Okuru. Editor:Best Treasure.
Octagon card design recreated from photos on the internet. Could not find the pattern anywhere so I created it as best I could from photos of his beautiful works.


I wish there was somewhere to buy his digital files and pay with Paypal.


Butterfly Pop-Up Card A7 and A9

Inspired by: Yuichi Miyoshi
I designed 2 sizes today. The A9 is too wobbly and the A7 seems just right size. 5X7

The Butterflies are from his book: Yume no ginsekai and I have seen his designs across the internet.

The photos are mine.1390 a7 a9 butterfly card
