It's Scary! A Pop-Up Spider

Updated: I figured out how to photgraph this.....so here are way better photos. I also added Cast-a-Spell DS to the inside right side - otherwise, it looked a little "lost". Finished card size 6x6.
This project was a challenge to photograph - it budges all over. You'll see why in the next photos. It is amazing to make! This is my first Pop-Up Ball project. Here is the front of the card:

And when the card is opened............a large pop-up spider. Scared You! The "scared" is also using the Billboard Alphabet Die attached using the 2 way Glue Pen.

Googly eyes attached with Tombow Glue. They are a nice touch!
Look at the top view - see how it bulges......................

Here's "BOO" using the Exclusive Billboard Alphabet die. Attach with 2 way Glue Pen.


Here are the little spiders. They also have googly eyes attached with Tombow adhesive.

Here's a close up of the large spider with larger googly eyes. The legs are attached to the top of the Hexagon and then sides are attached. Follow the instructions that come with the Pop-Up die to cut and assemble the 3D Ball.

Side view of spider. It sits on a scallop circle. Remember, the large spider can turn since it has a brad in the inside center. The Cast-a-Spell strip (the measurement is 2-1/2 X 5-3/4) is missing in this photo.

Here are some of the cut pieces used (note: 2 strips of DS used on the inside card - only 1 shown in photo):

A "trial" spider was made before the project began. Here it is using scrap paper.
