 Here is my "Spooky" contribution for this blog hop!

Let's get started!
Cut one piece of cardstock at 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 and one piece of patterned paper at 6 x 6

Cut  20 patterned paper at 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 and 20 pieces at 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 

Take the "B" side of your chosen paper and using a ruler, measure at 3" and make a mark. Repeat on all four sides and use the ruler to connect the marks to form a plus sign. Set aside.

Cut four pieces of  cardstock at 2 x 12
Score at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 on all four pieces
Fold on score lines

Add adhesive to four ends

Attach adhesive end to the backside of your "B" side in the center of the pencil line. Repeat until all four are attached.  Make sure the score line is flush to the cut edge. Add adhesive to the back and attach to the 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 cardstock piece.

Add paper clips to keep thing contained and it helps with training the paper on the score lines.
Next, cut two pieces of cardstock at 7/8 x 3 1/4 and punch two circle punches. 

Glue the strips to form a plus sign. Punch a hole in the center of one circle and glue to the center of the plus sign. Add a nesting circle punched out of patterned paper and repeat hole punch.

Now, remove one paper clip and fold the paper away from you. Mat squares to each strip until all are complete.
Decorate the center as desired. Please note: If you are running something up the edge make sure it is flush. My Pumpkin man needed surgery with an exacto knife to become flush with the edge...

Take the Plus sign and place it under the first square of each strip. Use pencil to mark edge. Add glue up to the line and glue to the square.

Your card is now ready for ribbon. The ribbon will be going through the circle in the middle of your plus sign. The second photo in this set of three is merely for visual people. So pull the ribbon through the hole.

Flip card over and using hot glue or foam tape secure ribbon down and attach second circle. No need for patterned paper here; I glued my plus sign up side down 😂

There you have it... a Halloween themed Pop up accordion card!
