This week’s challenge is to use products from the Halloween line to create party favors and invitations (or anything Halloween-ey to add to your celebrations this year). This set of product is one of my favorite…ever and I’ve had so much fun creating projects with it!
For the challenge, I created an invitation using the Dotted paper, Halloween striped ribbon, Halloween tags, clips, and word fetti. I had to incorporate the slot punch tool as well (if you do this, be sure to punch the holes and add the ribbon BEFORE you stitch the patterned paper onto the cardstock…otherwise you’ll have to adjust the size of your insert because you’ll lose about an inch of space inside your pocket.
And for my little party favors, I used a little bit of EVERYTHING in the Halloween line to embellish some cute little paper mache boxes I bought at the craft store. First I coated each box with paint, then embellished them with ribbons, papers, stickers, etc. I used the universal glue to attach the paper to my boxes – loved this because it dried fast and didn’t make my paper bubbly, and I used the ribbon glue to attach the ribbons – if you haven’t tried this glue yet, you should, it works SO well, and fast too!
I can hardly wait for our Halloween Celebration, I have more ideas for decorations (check our our line of chipboard decorations, ready for you to embellish any way you like), and creepy treats, and other scary things! If you’re as anxious as I am, take my challenge and post your projects in the gallery – I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
