Make A Spooky Halloween Pop Up Card

You start by drawing the haunted house using a white colored pencil.  It starts simply, with a rectangle.
 
The next set of steps for drawing the card are pretty simple.  It’s just a series of shapes stacked up together into houses.  If you hover over each image in the picture below, you will see a small note.  Just work on your haunted house until you are happy with it.  I wanted to make sure that mine were taller in the center, and as you moved away from the center they would get a bit shorter, like a triangle.

After you are happy with your drawing, it is time to color it in. Make sure to color with light colors that will really pop on black paper.  Don’t worry about coloring the windows just yet, as some of them will be cut out.  I used reds, oranges, purples and browns.

Now comes a bit of tricky part.  You need to measure a bit and play around until you get the card folded just right.  I used two scrap papers to do that, and I recommend you do the same.  I had to do several fold before getting it right.

First, take a different 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper.  It doesn’t have to be cardstock, but can be any scrap paper of the same size.  Fold it in half
Using a second piece of paper, fold it in half, like your drawing of the house. Then fold a few inches from the edge, like in the photo below.

The idea is to fit the house inside the folded paper in a way that when it is glued, it won’t stick out when the card is closed.  Just look at what I mean in the photo below. Once you figure out the position of the paper, just staple it in there.

Now back to your actual card.  To make it easier, I just measured how much to fold, and how far to glue it inside the folded paper.  As you can see, I need to fold about 2 1/2 – 3 inches in, and glue it inside the paper about 1 inch away from the edge.

Using a ruler, I folded the card nice and even. There it is, all folded.  The center fold is facing out, while the edge folds are facing in.

Time to cut out the windows. The easiest way to do so is with tiny scissors, like these. As you can see, I made a small mistake below.  The windows on the edges, after the folds, don’t really need to be cut out.  They can just be colored in after you glue them.  The two windows on the left that are right on the fold I would still cut out.  For the door, I just cut down the center, and then a bit on top to make them open.
 

 
Now, take the second 8 1/2 by 11 piece of black cardstock and draw your background on it.  I chose to draw the moon, some ghostly creatures, and a poisonous looking green background.  See them all below:
