Halloween in August ((by me))

My friends and I had a craft night, to make some Halloween banners. It wasn't fun trying to find cute Halloween paper in August. But they did turn out beautiful. You'll have to click on the picture to get a better look.

I decided to make a "beware"

And "creepy"
We used the baby boy mini cartridge to cut the panels out. And the Halloween cartridge for the rest. Both were designed by my friend Natalie. (She amazes me) The beautiful frame has skull images on the corners. So cute. It was kind of a pain to punch out all the little pieces. But worth it. And the font is perfect! We cut out rectangles of white paper to put behind the frames, and the letters on top of. On the bottom of the panel we punched a hole (the smaller side on my crop-a-dile) added an eyelet and put a beautiful crystal on the bottom. We cut one inch strips of black broad cloth to tie all the panels together with a pretty bow.
And for the last detail..silver glitter around the edge of the black frame. This was really simple. You just use a glue pen to draw your line around the frame. Add glitter, shake, and let dry.
I'm excited to put these up this Halloween.

  1. Those are super cute! I really like them. If I were to decorate for a holiday, it would be Halloween because Corey loves it and I might actually get some help. But, alas, I won't decorate. It's just me. ;)
