My step-mother-in-law REALLY likes pop up books and cards. I found instructions for a pop up bat card here. My mind IMMEDIATELY went to Carol.
I printed and cut out the bat. I knew I wanted it to be black so I traced it onto black construction paper and I thought it would be cute on orange construction paper.
Construction paper is usually larger than "regular" copy paper, so I laid a piece of copy paper over the construction paper so I would know how much to cut it down.
|The paper I used to put on top of the construction paper had stuff printed on it, so I just blocked it out for this picture.|
|I folded the card in half and measured down from the top 1" and made a pencil line.|
|Then I glued on the feet base on in place|
Then I erased the pencil line I made earlier
|I followed the instructions for folding the bat. I glued the bat to the feet.|
Then the wheels started turning in my head... I thought about having a moon and more bats on the front. So I dug out my Silhouette...
|I "ungrouped" this design, and moved the center out and cut it out of the yellow as well as cutting it all out of the black.|
|There is a blue spot behind the black spot for the spider's eyes. I used only the larger of the two and made it a black eye spot.|
|I cut the eyes out of black. I tried it two ways, cutting the holes in the white, and not cutting the holes in the white for placement... I'm not sure which was easier.|
|I deleted the bat and the moon|
|I cut the eyes and the mouth pieces out of yellow so they would look more like jack-o-lanterns|
|Well, that tree branch isn't exactly what I was thinking! LOL|
I simply drew a line with my pen from the tree branch to the spider for his web.
This picture is missing the yellow for the jack-o-lanterns and for the bat's eyes.
|I only used the hat of this group. But look at what all I got with my $0.99 purchase!?!?|
Once I had the hat cut out and glued on I then glued on some blue glitter for the hat band.
