Spiderweb Accordion Card

Send a wickedly creepy Halloween greeting on this punched spiderweb card.

Materials

  • Punch Around the Page Spiderweb corner and edge punches
  • Ruler
  • Bone folder
  • Black, white cardstock
  • Orange patterned paper
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Spider punch
  • Ribbon
  • Double-sided tape
  • Adhesive foam dots

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Trim a piece of black cardstock to 12-by-5 inches. Punch the corners using the Spiderweb corner punch; with the edge punch, connect the pattern from corner to corner using the guides on the tool's wings.

  2. Step 2

    For the accordion card, use a ruler and bone folder to score and fold the cardstock in half, and then score and fold the two ends back so the spider web border extends 1/2 inch beyond the center fold. Cut a piece of white cardstock to fit the front of the card, and adhere. Mat a smaller piece of patterned paper on the white.

  3. Step 3

    Trim a piece of patterned paper to fit the third panel of the card, and adhere. Print out a Halloween message from your computer onto a piece of white cardstock, trim down, and adhere to the patterned paper.

  4. Step 4

    Punch a spider shape out of black cardstock and adhere to the front of the card with an adhesive foam dot.

  5. Step 5

    Thread a ribbon through the holes in the spider web border near the center of the vertical edges of the front and last panels of the accordion. Tie loosely to close.

    I'd bought the Punch Around the Page! at Michael's a couple of weeks ago and it broke after very few invitations (less than 10). Don't waste your money on this product!!!
