Halloween Projects

For my first project I chose to make a Halloween "BOO" sign. I've seen a ton of cute one's on Pinterest and knew that I could make my own using my Cricut!!

I used the new Cricut Cartridge A Frightful Affair

I used empty cereal boxes as the base, they come in handy when making certain projects, especially when you want or need a sturdy back :)
The letter's are cut out at 8' using K & Company paper
I used polka dot ribbon from Micheal's to tie them together
I used Paper Dolls Dress Up for the ghosts, they are cut out at 3'
I used action wobbles on all the ghosts.
I used a 3M sticking tack on the back of my kitchen cabinets to attach the "Boo" sign too

For my second project I used Mini Monsters

Again I saw this adorable Halloween treat gift on Pinterest, I am going to give it to one of my friends as a "BOO" gift. If you have never heard of a "BOO" gift, it's really fun, you make two gifts and leave them on your friends or neighbors porch with a "BOO" note and they have to leave two different gifts on their neighbors or friends porch along with the "BOO" sign..

I scored and cut the rosettes at 12x1" and 12x1 1/2"
The ghost are from page 42 and are cut at 2" and 2 1/2"
The Spooky is cut at 1"
Boo is cut at 1 1/2"
Happy Halloween is cut at 1 1/2"
The Witch is cut at 3"
I bought the glass vase and ribbon from Michael's 
Candy corn I bought from the grocery store
and the paper sticks are from Jaded Blossom

For my last and final project I chose to do a Christmas Card using Jolly Holidays

The card is an A2 4 1/2 x 5 1/2
The red strip of paper is  2 1/2 x 5 1/2
The white strip is 2 1/4 x 5 1/2
The brown strip is 2 x 5 1/2
I used the Snowflake stamp from
Jaded Blossom's Snowman Kisses
Pink by Designs ~ Snowflakes 
The Santa beard is cut at 3 1/2" and 3"
I used the Cuttlebug Swirls folder to emboss his beard and added Frosted Lace Stickles
his nose is cut at 2"
his beard layers are cut at 1.25"
his face is cut at 1.75"
his hat is cut at 3.6"
I used a scalloped punch for the pompom on his hat
I added googly eyes and chalked his cheeks
