No matter how old I get, Halloween will always be a fun and playful holiday to me. And the new Toil & Trouble collection is so fun and playful and colorful, it just puts me in the mood for tricks and treats! Making these borders was so easy and fun, I may just have to reward myself with a little Halloween candy from my secret stash…shhh!
Woohoo. WASHI TAPE!
It is now part of the Creative Memories line.
Our first offering is part of our Toil & Trouble Collection. Although it might be included in the Halloween line, the designs are in no way themed for the holiday. The colors are bright and can be added to any card flaps to put a finishing touch on your mail.
In fact, add washi tape to ANYTHING for fun! Why not, when you have 26.2 feet on each roll? That means you get over 104 feet between these four rolls.
Most importantly it is photo-safe!
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.
Lauren’s jack-o-lantern is always very creative and usually has a theme – The Walking Dead this 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.
But, how do you make these adorable paper medallions to incorporate into your decor?
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!
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.
