This year I volunteered to decorate for the office Halloween party.  So fun!  This meant:
  1. I needed to stretch party dollars (used mainly old paper from my stash and kept the purchased items on the cheap)
  2. The design must appeal to the majority (I hope so!)
  3. Ideally reusable (it will last longer than I will!)
I used my Cameo to create the letters (Ravie font), bats, cats, witches, dripping blood circles and banner base.  The yellow circles I cut with my whatchathing manually.  I stuck everything together for each letter section then we laminated them at the office for longevity.  I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the corners for stringing ribbon.  We also laminated a couple of foam bats (for added stability) to use as connector pieces.  More foam bats will be flying around the banner and hanging from the ceiling.

I also made a garland using orange and black circles sewed together randomly.  These will hang as a curtain.

(Please do excuse the pics.  I took them at the office under horrible lighting conditions with my phone.)

The Details:  yellow and orange papers from stash, Recollections 110 lb black cardstock, Paper Studio chevron 12x12 paper, Pop Tone red cardstock, Glossy Accents

I'm entering this in Creative Cutting Challenge #40 Halloween, Dream Valley #92 Anything but a Card, Addicted to Stamps & More #116 Anything Goes, Papertake Weekly Anything Goes, Simply Create Too #72 Halloween or Lots of Orange, Colour Me #41
