Sinister Witch Added In Time For Halloween!

Posted by Ray Marshall on October 7, 2011 in Events, Make Your Own Pop-Ups, Making Pop-ups, Pop-Ups |

I’ve added this new downloadable Sinister Witch pop-up to my “Things To Make” page.  Mix in some ghoulish light to bring out her finer points.  Or even better, conjure up some other scary creatures by tracing the sheets and creating new features and shapes.  I hope they’re a howling success my dears! Cackle, cackle!
