Starting some Halloween Projects for this year, here is an cute little dash of spookiness:

Boo Banner Simply Created Banner Kit and other accessories

This banner was made using the Simply Created Build a Banner Kit. It comes with stencils to create the background stripes, dots, and chevron; as well as a full set of alphabet stencils to create your own sayings! I added some rosettes using Black from my Neutrals Background Designer Series Paper Stack; and Hello Honey from the 2014-2016 In Color Background Designer Series Paper Stack. The rosettes use two 2" strips of the 12x12 paper, scored every 1/2" and accordion folded, then attached end to end and popped down into the rosette on a Jumbo Sticky Round. 

I used Sponge Daubers to apply the Old Olive and Tangelo Twist to the canvas banners. Varying the number of times you daub will give you variations in the darkness of the color. The Center of the rosettes has a punched piece of the Motley Monster Designer Series Paper, and a Vintage Faceted Button with a Vintage Brad poked through one of the button holes. 

The Ghost and Bats are punch art using the Owl Builder Punch and a circle punch cut in half and then punched along the edges with a smaller circle. I used Rhinestones for the eyes, these might look scarier if I had colored them with the Blendabilities, but they are bright and sparkly.

I used Hello Honey ribbon, the Basic Black Taffeta ribbon, Basic Black Chevron ribbon, and the White and Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim to finish off the banner. I think that's all. LOL 

Its a sweet little banner, big enough to hang on your door or mantle, small enough to decorate a mirror or shelf to add to your Halloween decor!

I'll be making this with a couple groups in October, check out my upcoming events for dates and times!
Happy Crafting!!
