This Halloween boy monster card is really cute. It was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. I changed it and made it mine. I made the girl version last week and you can find it hereis here. This boy monster has stripes instead of spots and other slight differences but either could be made for a girl or a boy simply by changing the colors used.
This Halloween boy monster card uses a font I created myself. These cards were made with Fill-in Fonts that I created. Read all about them here. If you don’t have my fonts and if you don’t change the writing at all it should work. It was tiring with of fonts not filling in when I draw them.
What you need:
- Very heavy cardstock for the base
- Scraps of cardstock
- tape glue or liquid glue
- Download file
The difficult part of this 5 fold card is the actual folding. Once you get it folded it is amazing.
The base looks best in a solid color. Cover pieces, like the teeth, look very good with a pattern. . For the rest, use your imagination.
Cutting the Halloween Boy Monster Card
Folding the Halloween Boy Monster Card
Once the base card is cut, re-score the folds with a Popsicle stick. It gets a little tricky because some folds go all the way through and some don’t. First, tuck the inside triangles in individually. Then fold the edges. Lastly, fold and work the card a few times to make it easier to operate.
First glue all the background triangles and panels onto the card. Those are the blue and black on mine. The teeth are glued under the blue panels and hang over the edge a little. Follow the picture to see what goes where. Then glue the eyes a to the card with liquid glue.
Once the card is assembled, fold it closed and notice how the teeth laps over the other half. This card does’t want to stay closed so you can tie a ribbon around it or use one of the decorative bands in one of my other tutorials or just put it in an A2 envelope.
Your Halloween Boy Monster Card is done. Enjoy! Here is a picture of the girl card and you can find the tutorial for this card here.
