Photo Tips – Halloween Photography

Fall is my favourite time for photography!  I love all of the colours in the fall palette!  Along with fall comes Halloween and all of the photo opportunities surrounding this time of the year.

Pumpkins to Jack-o-lanterns

Leading up to Halloween I like to get photos of the children carving their pumpkins and what designs they come up with every year.

I see them everywhere.  Medallions.  Paper Medallions!

They are adorable and so easy to make!  You can create small ones, or very large ones all dependent on the width paper you use.

Using our Bats in the Belfry Collection will add to the spookiness of your Halloween decor.

Let me show you how to create these adorable pieces, so you can add to your Halloween decor, or perhaps even a birthday or Christmas!

Tools you will need:  Paper, Trimmer, Adhesive (Glue Gun), Multi-Purpose Tool

Halloween Treat Bags

When I think of Halloween, I think of the cute little adorable ways in which you can gift candy or trinkets!

What I love most about this treat bag is that you can create it any size you would like.  From small to big!

Step 1:  Cut a piece of paper into a rectangle.  (I cut mine to 6″ x 10″)

Step 2:  Fold one side in about 1/3 of the way.  Place adhesive on the edge of the folded piece.  Fold the other side of the paper over to cover the adhesive.

Step 3:  Fold the bottom over.  (This will be the thickness of the bag-I folded mine over 1-1/2″)

Step 4:  Open the bottom of the bag as shown, creasing the edges of the bottom.

Step 5:  Fold one side of the bottom, so it is just past the halfway crease on the bottom. Add adhesive to the edge of this flap.

Step 6:  Fold the other flap on the bottom over the top of the adhesive.

Step 7:  Open the bag.  Fill with goodies.

Step 8:  Create a page topper to fit over the top. Adhere to the top.

Step 9:  Punch holes, add tag, and tie with ribbon.

Maybe you create a special treat bag for your kids or grandkids, or maybe you give special treats to your co-workers at the office.  Whoever your recipients are, they will feel more than loved when they receive a treat bag in which you put your love and special touch into.

Happy Creating!!
