Some time ago, I wrote a tutorial showing how to create a papercraft text effect based on a design created by Mario Hugo for Wired Magazine. This time, I created another text effect based on paper craft. A popup paper craft effect such as those found on kids books. The process is fairly simple. A couple of gradient layers and the bending of a shadow is enough to give the basic effect of a paper cut word inserted on a folded paper.
