Even though it seems like summer only just arrived here in Oregon, the calendar says it’s time to get ready for Fall! Never one to miss out on seasonal decorating, these extra large pennant banners just jumped right out at me during the EK Success Craft Fest this fall in Portland.
These large arched chipboard pennants are 10″ x 16″ and when flipped upside down it just screamed Halloween headstone!
I think I used all these papers, except the tiger stripe. After laying everything together and deciding which to use, it just didn’t seem to fit into the look I was creating. For my first step, I used the Soot Ink Pad from Tim Holtz, rubbing it along the sides and over the enter front of my headstone. Then I cut strips of paper and attached them with spray adhesive, before adding some fun embellishments like self adhesive strips, ribbon, twine, a tag from 7 Gypsies, punched bats and a piece of jack-o-lantern flair. We’re planning to use the Halloween Headstone as a fun place to attached little notes in our booth during this weekend’s Scrapbook Expo. After the Expo, I’m planning to add some orange glittered THICKERS announcing Happy Halloween!
