Easy Halloween Pop-up Card

The card above was inspired and made from a paper lantern decoration. Unlike the lotus pop-up card that I made last week, this card only takes about a minute to make, if that. I purchased the pumpkin lantern at a party supply store. Since these tissue decorations are used for all holidays you could make just about any themed card with this concept. Simple directions below.

Supplies: double stick tape, tissue decoration(something like the one above), card stock

To make the card you will only need half of the tissue decoration. Simply cut the tissue decoration in half. Tape it to the inside of the card stock lining it up to the fold(refer to picture). Place double stick tape on the side that is exposed. Press the card closed.

Now when you open the card your decoration will fold out just like a pop-up card. Done.
