Halloween Tag



Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I look forward to it more and more every year. We get tons of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood which makes the holiday even more fun!

I am putting together a Halloween basket and thought it would be fun to include a homemade tag.

This cute tag is cut at 5 inches and is from the Wrap it up cartridge. If you are looking for a great all-around cartridge this is it. I love all the features including a great assortment of tags.


This tag did not come with any layers so, of course, I just had to add some. I used the layers from page 39 and resized them to 2.92 inches using my Gypsy. I love using the Gypsy with my E2. This project would have been much harder had I not used my G. First I sized my tag and then sized the layers to fit. I just love using glitter paper and moveable eyes! The E2 cuts glitter paper like butter. Can you tell I love my E2?


I cut a rectangle piece of paper ¾ x 2 inches, rounded the corners, added faux stitching and used Word for the sentiment.

Recipe:
Cricut “Wrap it Up” Cartridge
DCWV “Ghosts &Goblins” Stack
DCWV “Ghosts &Goblins” Cardstock Stack
Recollections Polka Dot paper from their Halloween collection
Black Glitter Paper from my stash
Microsoft Word for the sentiment
Moveable eyes
Ribbon from my stash

Please stop in tomorrow for a fun new video!

Halloween is my favorite holiday by far. Love the colors you used for this. That spider actually looks pretty adorable instead of creepy like I thought when I saw him in the handbook.

Kate said...

This is so fun! Your spider's colours are just perfect with the polka-dot paper! Wrap It Up really is a fantastic cartridge with so many hidden treasures!
