Have you seen the latest Halloween papers from Graphic 45,Authentique and Canvas Corp. The delicious foils from Mambi. These papers make the most charming and Wicked Halloween Tags to hang on my Halloween tree. This arrangement of tags and tree is perfect for a table decoration, Window (table) decoration,or even at the office on your desk. This is a great project and it’s kid friendly too! It’s super easy and lot’s of fun. USE YOUR IMAGINATION!!!! Cutting Paper and Decorating, what could be more fun? You can create rosettes from scrapbook paper, Old books from the thrift shop-I’M WAITING for one of these paper companies to make a paperline that looks worn and vintage HELLO CAN YOU HEAR ME?? Ribbon bows for hangars add stickers and more. The hardest part of the project is choosing what paper you want to cut up. (SOMETIMES, THAT HURTS). THESE PAPERS ARE SOME OF THE BEST I’VE SEEN IN YEARS. THE TREE IS MADE OF METAL AND WAS MADE SPECIAL FOR ME (MY FRIEND PAT, HER HUSBAND HAS A MACHINE SHOP AND HE MAKES ALL SORTS OF THINGS FOR US TO DECORATE(THANKS TOM)).
The tree branches are at three different heights a total of 12 branches.It’s easy to make the tags: Short, Medium or Long. Your Choice, you can make double-sided(I do to hide the ribbon of where I glued).I kept getting ideas and just kept making tags- I was thinking about doing a Trick or Treat night with tags (not for the kiddos, they want CANDY) I stop for now at EIGHTEEN (18) and I know I’ll make more. I went to Michael’s and found some orange and graphite ribbon to wrap around the crepe paper garland. I’m thinking of adding some orange tulle and some orange sequin ribbon. My friend Pat printed out words EEK,BOO,DON’T LOOK BEHIND YOU,HAPPY HAUNTING.Graphic 45 paper Rare Oddities, I’ll call it the “B” side is filled with words to cut out and start layering. As for embellishments I used Rhinestones RHINESTONES,(black,orange and Gold),Rosettes (Anna Griffin has the greatest embossing folders to make rosettes),black and orange tulle,Lots of Glitter-used WOW glitter (they have great colors and textures) and from the Dollar Tree I picked up spider ringsd, skull rings and black artificial flowers (when you make your tags, use what you have as decorations).
BOO BOO BOO BOO BOO
SOME OF THE TAGS ARE HELD BY RIBBON AND SOME WITH WIRE. I WAS THINKING I COULD MAKE TAGES AND LAY THEM AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE TREE. (SO,I CAN KEEP HAVING FUN
GET YOUR WICKED ON
