Trick or Treat!
Or, more accurately, a card with a trick.
I got it in my head that I wanted to make a Halloween card with a pop-up bat. Except, the only kind of bats I know how to draw are actually bat signals.
Having no immediate need for assistance from the caped crusader, the googling commenced.
I found this great website with directions for making pop-up cards that are surprisingly intricate and elaborate looking for being fairly straight forward to assemble. (check out the Frankenstein card - so great)
So, of course, I made none of them (not even the one with the bat), but I did rip off the instructions for making a mouth.
Hence, the talking jack-o-lantern card. Or at least, the lip synching jack-o-lantern card.
I'm fascinated with the construction of these, so I suspect I'll revisit the pop-up card genre come Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Happy Halloween, y'all!
