Spider card

Halloween is just around the corner!  This week, I will share a few Halloween projects that can also be done with kids…

Today’s one of my favorite!  I used a Shaker frame to make this cute “sparkly” spider.  The spider is attached with a string of Baker’s twine so it can move around!

I draw the spider web myself with a white crayon since I don’t have the Spider web embossing folder… It would look nice though!

For the spider, first use the 1-3/4″ Circle punch to cut a circle in Rich Razzleberry.  Then, put the shaker frame around it and fill with Glass Stampin’ Glitter (the gold one is called “Champagne”).  Cut a circle the same size in the Window sheet and adhere on top.  To finish, cut another 1-3/4 circle and inside it, cut a 1-1/4 in circle in the center (to form a “ring”).  Glue over the shaker frame.  Add a 1 in circle for the head and use the Owl punch for the eyes.  I cut two little teeth in the Champagne Glimmer paper.

I used the 1″ Square punch to cut the legs. You need to recut them in an “L” shape.  At the back I attached a Baker’s Twine string with multi-purpose liquid glue and add another circle over to really make it stick. I attached the string at the back of the spider web with scotch tape.  Finish the card by adhering the Spider web (Basic Black card stock) on the Old Olive card base and adding the Happy Halloween! (on Modern Label punch).

When you shake the card, it looks like the spider is alive and bouncing around! My kids just love it!

I tried to show that you can move the spider around with this picture… I know it’s not as good as real life!!!

  1. Wow beautiful ! how do you make the shaker frames?

    • You can buy the shaker frames from Stampin’up. They are a foam circle with double-sided adhesive. They come in packages of 36 frames 6 of each size (nested in 6 circles.) see p.177 of the Stampin’up catalogue. Click on the image on the left side bar… You fill the circle with sparkles and add a “window sheet” (transparent plastic) on top.
