As usual, I am very behind in my posts! It always seems like the holidays get that way for me... Plus we have several family birthdays that keep me on my toes making handmade gifts this time of year. :o)
Regardless (and even though Halloween in far behind us), I want to get caught up with my club project posts... and I've got to go all the way back to September to do that! So here are the Halloween projects we made in hostess club!
My favorite has to be the pinwheel corsage I came up with. And this is another reason why I am still bothering to post this so late... it would be a great project to make for any holiday or special event! Birthdays, Baby Showers Bridal showers, graduations... you name it! I plan to make several more of these in the near future and can't wait to come up with different color combos!
We used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching framelit dies to make the pinwheel. After stamping and cutting 9 of them, we just stacked them and punched a 1/16" hole at the top of the ornament then placed a brad through and fanned them out (don't forget to curl up the edges a bit!). In order to get them to lay right, you need to cut a slit in the top one and slip it over the bottom one when they come around and meet each other. Once they are fanned out and evenly spaced, just stick the whole pinwheel onto a jumbo sticky round! We embellished the bottom (attached via the back) with several coordinating ribbons and on the front we used the Ghoulish Googlies stamp set cut out and layered with the Window Frames framelits.
I got the idea for our second project (Bitty Boo Boxes) from fellow demonstrator Brenda Quintana. These are made using the Petal Card punch and she has an excellent tutorial posted on her blog for them here!
Lastly, we made a VERY quick and easy project using the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle from the holiday mini. We embossed the bags with the Spider Web embossing folder and also decorated both sides of the bag with a tag. On one side, we stamped the Mummy from the Ghoulish Googlies set:
And on the other side, we used the smaller tag that comes with the kit and stamped it with the "Spooky" sentiment from the Wicked Cool Stamp set:
