“Halloween Treat Card”
Instructions: To attach the lollipops to the card, simply punch two holes in the sticker tag, thread the ribbon through the holes and tie the lollipops to the card. To decorate, attach the Tumblebeasts sticker tag and pumpkin sticker to the front of the card.
Font: 1722 Roman
Instructions: Cut three pieces of paper into rectangles and adhere them to the black greeting card. Cut a few strips of raffia and tie them into a knot. Glue the raffia to the card just behind the knot. Adhere the turkey sticker to a piece of tan cardstock and trim around the outline of the design. Glue the turkey embellishment to the center of the card.
Raffia: Magic Scraps
Instructions: Cut a piece of patterned paper to the height of the can. If the paper does not wrap all the way around the can, attach a second piece to the end of the rectangle you have cut so that it is long enough to wrap completely around the can. Tear a piece of cardstock to create the bottom border. Use metallic rubs to age the torn edge and then adhere the border to the patterned paper. Apply the “Happy Thanksgiving” and brown netting stickers to create the top and middle border of your design. Next add the turkey stickers and additional leaf stickers. Wrap your design around the can and adhere it so that it stays in place. Finally add raffia and a sticker tag to complete the centerpiece.
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny Press
Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock into an 8.5” x 8.5” square. Fold the cardstock in half to create a vertical card. Add the Christmas tree sticker to the center of the card. Trim the Green Netting sticker sheet into three ¼” wide strips. Peel the netting stickers from the backing and apply them to the border of the card around the Christmas tree.
“Merry Christmas Ornament”
Instructions: Cover both sides of a CD-ROM with patterned paper. Add “Merry” sticker to the top portion. Next cut each letter of “Christmas” from the sticker sheet and adhere it around the bottom border. Add Poinsetta stickers to the center of the CD. Cut a strip of the Green Netting sticker to add a border between the words. Using a strong, quick-drying glue (hot glue works well) adhere gold cording around the outside of the CD. Wrap the CD with green ribbon, threading the ends inside the middle of the CD. It helps to glue the ribbon to the front of the CD to keep it in place. Thread the ends of the ribbon through the button hole of the gold button. Glue the button to the CD. Finally, attach gold cording to the center of the CD to complete the project.
