The instructions on how to make the Halloween Creepy Spider card are in my previous posting. Here I will show you how to make the spider for this card. See further bellow.

To make Halloween Creepy Spider card you will need: (card instructions in the previous posting)

  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • Orange card paper (15 x 15cm)

  • Double sided tape
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick) 

I have set up and online shop - CRAFT MAGIC ONLINE SHOP- on my blog (top right corner). You can now purchase many crafting supplies right here. The shop is powered by Amazon, so you would be making the purchase through Amazon. I have just selected (and sorted into various categories) crafting products that Amazon sells. My blog's shop is divided into 2 parts; one offers paper crafting and scrapbooking supplies and the other one is for crafty kids and offers variety of beautiful crafty kits and products designed for children.

I took pictures at various stages of making the spider for my Halloween Creepy Spider card. This should make it easier.

 Add spider jaws as seen in the picture above.

 Draw 8 legs as seen in the picture above. Leave some space between each leg.

Ad thickness to each leg as seen in picture above.
