How to Fold the Folding Surprise Pumpkin Printable:

Watch the video below to see how easy it is to fold this foldable pumpkin printable with a surprise Halloween cat!

Print out the blank or color version of the folding pumpkin printable.

  1. Fold the paper directly in half: Grab the top of the paper and fold it so the top edge meets the bottom edge.
  2. Fold the paper in half bringing the top edge down to the bottom edge (if you chose to download the dotted line version, use the lines as a guide on where to fold).
  3. Take the bottom edge of the top layer and fold it up to the top layer.
  4. Turn the paper over, and fold the bottom up to the top (this concludes the folding) and you now have 3 creased folds.
  5. Your end result should consist of a closed pumpkin (jack o’lantern), and once the paper is opened, a Halloween cat is displayed inside the pumpkin!
