Halloween Pop-up Cards


This Halloween I thought I would make cards for Jackson and Tanner, since most of the store bought cards are way over priced and boring.  And I get to use up some of my Halloween stash. 
Below are directions for a basic pop-up card.  


  1.  With a piece of card stock score a line in the center to fold in half. Then score a line 1" above   and one below the center to about 3/4" from the edge of the paper.
  2. Use an x-acto knife  and cut from the top corner of the scored line to the bottom corner of the scored line.  Repeat on other side.
  3. Fold the scored lines as shown to make your first pop-up.
  4. For the second pop-up score another line 1" below the other scored line. Draw lines from the center scored line to the score line you just made.  
  5. Cut on the lines with your x-acto knife.
  6. Fold the scored lines for second pop out.
  7. You can flip it if you want the 2nd pop-up on the bottom.
  8. For this one I am going to have the pop-up on top.  I cut out 2 small pieces on the center scored line.  These are what I will be attaching my stars too.
  9. Take another piece of card stock a little bigger than your other piece and score in the middle
  10. Fold in half and make sure your pop-ups are folded correctly and the card will lay flat.
  11. Glue the back sides of your pop-up piece, match up the centers of each piece and press into place.
  12. The finished card.
The ghost card has the 2nd pop-up on the bottom

The witch card has the 2nd pop-up on the top. 
 I used glow in the dark moon and star stickers .

I kept the front of the cards simple looking since there was enough going on inside of the cards.
