A Homespun Affair - October 2012 Edition

Hello!!!! It's the October edition of A Homespun Affair and this month we are bringing you projects for a Halloween!!! I'm not as big a fan of Halloween as I was as a child, but I do like to see the little ones dressed in their costumes (and of course the chocolates, lol)! For this edition, I focused more on the projects rather than a tutorial.

For the rosettes I used the Artiste cartridge. You need two cuts for one rosette. For this banner I cut 16 at 2 1/2 inches. Fold them like an accordion and adhere both ends together.
The medallion is cut at 3 1/2 inches from the Artiste cartridge. The word "Spooky" was cut from the Blackletter cartridge at 3 1/4 inches.
I punched holes at opposite ends of the rosettes and strung ribbon through. The stamped images are from the Wicked set and I colored the witch lightly with chalk. I used Stickles on the letters for a little shimmer. 

The treat bag was cut at 5 1/4 inches from the Artiste cartridge. The scallop was cut at 3 inches from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I stamped and cut the stamps from the Wicked stamp set. This bag is large enough to fit some yummy treats inside!!! 

I hope you have enjoyed these projects!!!
