Trick or Treat Banner

For my first project I used Country Life and Teddy Bear Parade to make my "Trick or Treat" Banner for my fireplace mantel. I love Halloween and don't have much inside cuteness, most of it is outside. So I decided to make some Halloween items for my house.

Here is a picture of my banner

This picture is kinda far, but every time I got closer the picture came out blurry, 
I think it's time for a new camera  :)

Up close picture of the word "Trick" 
I love DCWV paper!!

Cute little bear from Teddy Bear Parade

Here are the details of my banner:

I cut the banners from Country Life
at 5"
I used Happy Hauntings Font 
in various sizes to fit the banners

Teddy Bear Parade for the Witch Bears
cut at 2.5"
For my next project I made a Police Graduation  Card for our friends Son who just graduated from the Police Academy :)

The card is a 6x6
I used a dark blue then added a lighter blue for depth
The policeman is from Everyday Paper Dolls and  cut out at 5"
and I used Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Stamp
I used a stamp that I bought from Michael's for the inside sentiment, sorry it's blurry. I need a new camera badly!! It's going on my Christmas List!!

For my last project I made 6 "BOO" gift cones for my friends. I am going to fill them with treats and leave them on their front doors with the "BOO" poem :)

I used Winter Woodland for the cones
I cut the cones out at 9.5"
added ribbon to the inside for a handle
I cut a 12 x 1 1/2" piece of paper and scored it every 1/4" to make a rosette.

  4. Jenn - what great projects you made for today! It is always hard to get a good picture of a banner! But I love the little Teddy Bear you added on there!
    Super cute police officer card but my favorite project today is the Boo Cones! In my old neighborhood we used to do the "BOO" thing when my kids were younger! I did not know Winter Woodland had the cone on it - I have to use that! Thanks for telling us!
