Popping Up Boo!

If you are looking for a really cute project to do for just about any holiday, birthday or just about any fun time this is one of those "I have to make one of those"crafts.
Only thing is that they are addicting and you can't stop at just one. I got this idea from a blog that was posted on a craft board. It is a pop up match book box. The ghost lays flat down in the box but pops right up when opened.
It is fun and so easy to do. The box measures about 3 1/2 by 4 1/2 so it is pretty good size to hold all kinds of cute little things. I put stickers in it and sent it off for a prize on a swap board.
The little ghost pops up with a little scrap of window sheet. You know those little plastic see through flexible sheets. I cut a little piece of one and glued in onto the ghosts then to the front inside of the box. It lays down when closed and Pops right up when opened. How cute is that...

I can think of all kinds of things for pop ups..Let me know if you have any ideas or if you make some.I would love to see more ideas on these.
Have fun and thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
