This card is simple to recreate all you need is a large Glassine Bitty Bag and a handful of sequins to get this project started. cover a 6 x 6 card with your favorite Christmas paper and trim the bag to fit. Fill with a handful of Sequins and seal the top with gold washi tape.

Wrap Green and White Divine Twine around the top and hold in place with tape. Cut out two fish tail banners and layer together before adhering to the corner.

Finish by adding some holly and a sentiment.

  • She started off by spritzing ink over a blank card and letting it dry.
  • Then flicked ink over the top and let a few drops run along the card before adding a bit of texture with a stamp.
  • Color in the little Guinea pig with Prima Watercolors
  • Last, she used a die cut for the balloons which i cut from textured card stock and inked before gluing strands of Solid White Twine to each one to create a bunch of balloons that are lifting him away.

Just a few minutes of “work” adds so much character to these fun little pieces.

BOO!…Halloween is over!?! Not Yet!

November 3rd, 2016 § 1 comment § permalink

Jessica C. made these Halloween Decorative Blocks out of two wood blocks she had on hand.

Supplies used:

PURPLE BLOCK

  • Purple and Black block
  • 5×7 wood block
  • Divine Twine Knots black
  • Divine Twine purple
  • Little Bitty Bags plain brown
  • Small Tag white
  • Halloween paper cut to size 5×7 (your choice)
  • Ghost cut out (shapes your choice)
  • Cut out letters spelling BOO in white
  • Cut out letters spelling TRICK OR TREAT in white
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Wood glue
  • Tombow mono liquid glue
  • Paint brushes
  • Sand paper brick

ORANGE BLOCK

  • 4×6 wood block
  • Divine Twine Grey
  • Divine Twine Orange
  • Little Bitty Bags plain brown
  • Small Tag light orange
  • Halloween paper cut to size 4×6 (your choice)
  • Pumpkin cut out (shapes your choice)
  • Cut out letters spelling Boo in black
  • Cut out letters spelling TRICK OR TREAT in black
  • Orange acrylic paint
  • Wood glue
  • Tombow mono liquid glue
  • Paint brushes
  • Sand paper brick

jessica_halloblock_01_110316

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I started my project by sanding my wood blocks until they were smooth.  Then I painted the sides and the back leaving the front unpainted so the glue would adhere better.  I painted two coats of paint on my blocks.

While the paint was drying I used the mono liquid glue to glue the ghost and pumpkin onto the little bitty bags.  Once the glue had dried I pulled apart cotton balls and stuffed them into each bag to my desired puffiness.  I then used a some twine to tie the bag shut.

jessica_halloblock_02_110316

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While the blocks were still drying I glued the letters onto my paper along the left side. Making sure I left enough room for my bag.  Now if I did this over again I might wait until the end to glue my letters on because when I sanded the edges of my blocks again, after I adhered the paper, any extra glue caught the fine dust and smudged my letters.

Once the paint was dry on the blocks I used wood glue to glue the paper to the clean unpainted front side.  It is okay if the paper goes right to the edge of the block.  After the wood glue dried I sanded the edges smoothing down the paper.

To finish up the edges I put some paint on my finger and ran it across the edges creating a small thin border.

Again I waited for the paint to dry and then wrapped the twine around the blocks 3 times and tied a knot.  Then I placed my bag on the twine and tied another knot then added the tag and tied a bow.  To finish it off I used glue dots to hold the bag in place on the paper.

Making a Ghostly Candle!

joanna_candle_hp_102716-jpp

Joanna S with My Paper World

Created a creepy candle. She wrapped it with our Whisker Graphics Black Diamond Twine from the Metallics collection:

She then added some spider web and die cut with Halloween motive, with a little bit of Orange Solid Divine Twine as an accent.

In the end she added a few spiders and some black & orange mists!

Boo!  All Done and ready for those Trick-or Treater’s at the front door.
