How to...Give some­one the creeps

Cre­ate a haunted-por­trait card with an in­ter­ac­tive el­e­ment

Papercraft Inspirations - - PRINTABLES -

1 Cre­ate a 20x12.5cm card base from black card. Trim two pieces of lime-green card to 19x11.5cm then layer them onto slightly larger pieces of pur­ple card, leav­ing nar­row bor­ders.

2 Cut two 18.5x10cm pieces of stone-wall pa­per then at­tach on top of the lay­ered pan­els. Wrap rib­bon around one of the pan­els then at­tach them to the in­side of the card base, as shown.

3 Fussy cut a framed por­trait then cut out the eyes. Trim a strip of card into a T shape then place it over the back of the eye holes and hold in place with two loops of card for the T to slide through.

4 Use a thin black marker pen to write ‘pull’ on the tab at the end of the T, and draw pupils for the eyes. Use sticky foam pads to at­tach the por­trait in­side the card on the right-hand side.

5 Use the tem­plate on page 77 to cut, score and fold a fire­place, then cover it with stone pa­per. Trim black card to 9x7cm, at­tach it to the back of the fire­place, to cre­ate a box, then af­fix to the card.

6 Trim a spooky scene to 5x5cm then add thin strips of black card to make it into a win­dow scene, as shown. At­tach the win­dow to the left-hand side, in­side the card base.

7 Use sticky foam pads to at­tach a fussy-cut sen­ti­ment to the cen­tre of the rib­bon, add a fussy-cut ghost to the fire­place, then fin­ish by adding a gold gem to each cor­ner of the card.
