Spider Pull Up Accordion Card

Hey everyone, I’ve started a few Halloween projects and will be sharing these over the next few weeks.

First up are these very fun Spider Pull Up Accordion Cards.

I was inspired to make these back when I made the Pull Up Accordion Card after a lady commented that it would look good with 8 sides and turned into a spider for Halloween. I thought what a great idea and so, come up with this.

If you missed my Pull Up Accordion Card tutorial, I’ve shared it below.


This Spider card is easy to make you just need to get your templates made first for your octagon shaped base.

It all folds flat fitting into a 6 x 6 envelope.

To make this you will need…

For your templates, 1 piece of 6″ x 6″, 5.1/2 x 5.1/2 & 5″ x 5″ 1mm chipboard.

Score along the 11.1/2 side at 1.1/2, 3″, 4.1/2, 6″, 7.1/2, 9″ & 10.1/2

Score along the 6″ side at 3/4″, 1.1/2, 2.1/4, 3″, 3.3/4, 4.1/2 & 5.1/4
