Last year I made Boo popup cards using the gypsy, which the file of course got lost because of resetting the gypsy. I thought I would see if I could reproduce this in CCR, and it worked. It's not as neat a cut as the gypsy or centered as well as CCR does have some challenges there.

The Boo popup part is from the free CCR basic cart, so anyone that uses CCR can make this popup. The spiders, webs, and bats are from Chic and Scary. But, if you have carts with spiders, webs and bats, you can substitute those images.

The bottom of the Boo is a valley fold for each letter, the top of the Boo is a mountain fold, and the "shelf" is a valley fold. After all those folds have been made, fold the card together and it will find the natural spot for the half way fold. Using a very sticky tape (like score tape or very tacky), attach one side of the card to an A2 card at the fold. Then put very sticky tape on the other side and fold the card down on top of it to attach.

I usually mail my cards, so don't pop dot, but you could pop dot the spiders for some added dimension.

There is a shelf over the Boo. What could you pop dot to the back of the shelf...skulls or jack-o-lanterns, more spiders????

The sentiments are on the outside of the card, under the lift up designer papers. The outside of the cards shown are cards I made last year. I used Pumpkin Carvings cart to create the cut on the right side.

Use your practice paper to make these first so you get a good understanding of how to fold and tape the boo part to an A2 card. Then use your good paper.

If you use the CCR file and make something, please post what you made. I would love to see your creations!

Wonderful design. Especially like the dangling spider.
Pop ups are such fun to make and receive.

Love pop out cards. Cricut spiders are the only kind I can stand though. :)
