Banner 10-31 card: On this card I cut a spider web from patterned paper and inked the outer edges with black ink. Place that on the center of your card. Next, place two black brads on either side of the web- don't make the brads too tight so that you can wrap them with orange twine. Place banner stickers onto black cardstock. Add 10 star and 31 to centers of banners. Cut around banners so that the bbanners are matted with black cardstock. Use pop dots to adhere banner pieces to card. I used the Cricut Expression to cut the spider and glued it to my card.
Beware of cats jar.
Choose a glass jar to decorate- I got this one fairly cheap from a craft store. Cut a circle the size of the bottom of the jar. I used my Cricut Expression and Cricut Happy Hauntings cart to cut a spooky tree from Apothecary Emporium patterned paper and set it into the glass. I really want to re-use this container during other seasons. So, instead of adhering my sticker (beware of black cats) onto it, I adhered the sticker to black cardstock and cut around it. Then, I attached it to my orange ribbon at the top of the jar.
Spider box: To create the spider box I used the awesome spider patterned paper from this line. I used my cricut and the wrap it up cart to cut the box (material saver off,
3D Coffin treat box: I used my cricut once again and cut a 3d coffin from patterned paper using the wrap it up cart <3dcoffin> at 9". I inked the edges. Then, I folded a long strip of patterned paper accordion style and made a pennant-style embellishment for the top of the coffin. I added orange ribbon and topped it with one of the cool stickers from the Apothecary Emporium collection. I also used three small bat stickers from this line, only adhering the centers and gently bending the wings for a 3d look.
