When I wasn't trying to explain our new game Monopoly, battle little man or cleaning a trail of toys...I did what I could to get a little peace and crafted away. Today is challenge Thursday over on MelJen's Design blog and I am so excited to share three projects I completed to welcome our favorite...Halloween.
I used the country star pumpkin and ghost cutie to complete his card. I backed the pumpkin with a darker orange cardstock and ran adhesive along the bottom and half way up the sides to create a pocket. I also used felt to back the star and sewed it on just to give it a little more pop. You don't have to do much to make these images really stand out. Additional supplies used: wrinkle ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique, adhesive pearls (KaiserCraft) and die cut labels (Spellbinders) from Paper Garden Projects.I wanted to make tags using the ghost as well, but found that these pumpkins were perfect on their own. Perfect for party favors, or as I will be doing, making up little bags to pass out on Halloween with these attached (minus the pearls for the kiddies).Finally, I had one pumpkin remaining and it wasn't about to go unused. So to finish off my project share today I bring you this little door hang...using my favorite wrinkle ribbon (of course) and yummy papers from Paper Garden Projects as well.
Hope you enjoyed. Tomorrow I will bring you my Whimsie Doodle projects from the new release and a few more Halloween goodies. Off to make another felt ornament to share!
Now to prepare for our house decorating tonight, costume making and catch up with a friend.
