Hi crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by today! I always look forward to see what the very clever Debby Hughes comes up with for her monthly Creative Uses posts on our blog and she sure didn’t disappoint this month with a spooky Halloween goody bag! Read on and be sure to watch the video! Enjoy!
Hello, it’s Debby here today with a look at how to create cute monsters from our dies. I used my little monster on a spooky Halloween goody bag but he would’ve gone equally well on a fun children’s birthday card too.
I used the ear from the Plush Sweet Elephant dies along with an antler from the Plush Deer dies as the base for my monster. I cut them from Neenah Solar White card and then added some simple Copic coloring accented with dots of Colorless Blender, glitter gel pen, white gel pen and finally I added Doodlebug Eerie Eyes.
I scored and folded a goody bag from Doodlebug patterned paper and accented with twine and ribbon. I then mounted the monster on a white Stitched Rectangle and added a sentiment from the Ghostly Greetings stamp set white heat embossed on patterned paper and then die cut with a Basic Banner die.
I tucked in some purple tissue paper and a couple of pencils in great Halloween colors. I do like to add things other than sweeties for Halloween – so much better for everyone’s teeth! Finally I added some Spider’s Web sequins and Nuvo Crystal Drops.
The advantage of creating for Halloween is that so many of our dies can be easily re-purposed in to cute monsters. I hope you take a second look at your supplies to see how you can stretch their use for the coming season.
Thanks for reading today, and thanks to Debby for being our special guest!
