I'm back today with more tips & tricks for Papertrey Ink. This project involves little monsters too cute to be spooky and can be especially sweet when created with the little monsters in your life.
This project comes together very simply and inexpensively as all I've used for my container is a peat moss pot that I painted with off-white acrylic paint and then dressed up with my Papertrey Ink dies, felt, paper, buttons, and ribbon.
A few things you'll need to get you started are:
The Shape Up Series: Pumpkin Die Collection (used for the mouth), Smokey Shadow Felt, Mega Halloween Treats & Sweets Die Collection (for the bat wings), Smokey Shadow Bitty Dot Paper, and True Black Vintage Buttons. The scallops around the top of the container were created using the Medium Scallop Border Die, the Background Basics: Newsprint stamp set, and a coating of mica flakes and then topped off with Limeade Ice Bitty Dot Satin.
What would a Halloween project be without spider webs?? I glittered up webs cut using the Spider Web Trio Die Collection and adhered them to small glassine bags filled with Halloween treats and tucked inside the container.
One of my little girl's favorite things right now are straws...striped and polka dotted are her most favorite, so we always have some floating about. I created a couple of large picks using black and white striped straws to dress up the package a bit. This first pick used the Spooky Sweets II stamp set and coordinating die along with the Double Ended Banners Die, Limitless Layers 2 1/2" Circle Die collection, and the Think Big Favorites #19 stamp set, along with Fine Linen and Simply Chartreuse cardstock.
For this pick I used the Halloween Treats & Sweets Stamp set and Bitty Halloween Treats & Sweets Die Collection (for the pumpkin and hairy spider legs :). It is tied to the straw using Limeade Ice Satin.
Lots of fun, but made even more fun with the help of your kiddos. Let them pick out colors to try, bat wings, spider legs, or kitty ears, pumpkin faces, batty grins, or kitty whiskers! We'll be mixing and matching these fun elements here and having lots of fun while we're at it.
So happy you stopped by!
