Easy Halloween Craft For Kids - How To Make A Pop-Up Halloween Card

I love pop-up cards. They are very easy to make and they are fun. Kids can easily do this on their own in very little time and with little mess. Younger kids may need some supervision handling the scissors. In this post, I am going to show you how to make a pop-up Halloween card in 8 easy steps. The steps on how to make a pop-up card will be shown to you in an easy step by step picture tutorial. So easy, even a child can do it on his or her own using these instructions.

 Step 1 On How To Make A Pop-Up Halloween Card. You will need construction paper, scissors, glue and colored pen and other fun things like glitter pens, accessories and other craft embellishments including stickers etc to decorate your card. Get them in the Halloween and fall colors of Orange, Green, Brown or Black and White. I haven't got all of those other stuff here as I am just going to show you how to make a basic card. You can get creative and decorate your card in any manner you want.

  Step 2 On How To Make A Pop-Up Halloween Card. Use 2 colors. You can use the same color if you want but I like to use two so that my card will have a different color on the inside.

  Step 3 On How To Make A Pop-Up Halloween Card. Draw two lines in the middle of the card. You will soon be cutting along those lines to make a tab to hold your 3d pop-up picture.

  Step 4 On How To Make A Pop-Up Halloween Card. Cut along the lines and fold the tab inwards to face the inside of your card. Your card will now look like it has a hole in the middle! Don't panic....

  Step 7 On How To Make A Pop-Up Halloween Card. Your card now looks like this, no more holes. If you have used two colors like I have, your card will have a dual tone color, one for the cover and another for the inside.

  Step 8 On How To Make A Pop-Up Halloween Card. Finally, paste a Halloween picture on your tab. You can draw your own picture. I used a picture I found in one of my children's activity books. Taddaaa.... your pop-up Halloween Card is now ready.

This is a very basic card. Your card should look a lot nicer than this. You can draw a cat, a witch or a ghost and include the words Happy Halloween or Boo! on the front cover. Let's get creative and have fun.
