Happy Halloween Garland
Even small spaces deserve some holiday cheer, and today’s garland is just perfect for adding a little Halloween flair to your home office or work cubicle.
Time: 45 minutes + coloring time
Stamp images onto bright white cardstock with Memento and Brilliance inks. Elderberry is a great alternative to black, if you find black too harsh; Coffee Bean adds an aged look to line-art stamps, and Tangelo is a good choice for no-line coloring of pumpkin scenes.
Color in the stamped images then fussy-cut around each image.
Die cut several rounded rectangles from various shades of dual-colored cardstock. Score and fold the top ¾” to create a pocket for the string, and show off the backside color.
Stamp large letters onto the rounded rectangles with VersaMark ink and emboss with a heat tool and black embossing powder.
Decorate the backgrounds of each piece of cardstock with some scatter stamps and VersaMark Dazzle ink for a subtle, shimmery pattern.
Create a stitched border around each cardstock flag by running a broken line of irRESISTible Pico Embellisher around the edges. Once dry, attach the stamped images to the flags with dimensional adhesive.
Assemble the garland by placing two rows of Tear It! Tape under the folded section, along the crease, lay the twine across the crease, and fold over the flap, securing the twine in place. Glue a decorative button onto the flap for a final piece of decoration.
