I wanted to jump on the 'banner' bandwagon, and 'spooky' was the first word to pop in my head, so I just went with it.
I started out by cutting 'spooky' out with my new Silhouette machine. Now, you guys are probably thinking I'm one of those cool people who won one off of one of those even cooler blogs, but sadly I'm not. I wanted one so bad that my mom got me one for an early (very early!) birthday and Christmas present. Woohoo!!
I laid it all out to see how it was looking so far, and I felt it still needed something. Anybody else thinkin' cat eyes for the O's? I also wanted to do orange paper behind the black paper, so I traced a cd again, but cut it out with some heartbeat edge scissors.
I wanted to add a little more detail to the banner, so I printed out a bat outline that I found on the web (get it, web? Ok, that probably wasn't very funny) and I cut out 2 bats on black paper then sprinkled them with some black glitter, and I gave them creepy red eyes.
Next, I glued everything to some black ribbon and called it a day!
I'm loving the glittery cat eyes.
I realized it looks pretty boring on the white wall, so I also took some pics 'on location' to show the different possibilities.
On a weathered fence:
I'm lovin' how it stands out against the wood.
And the bats look so sparkly in the filtered sunlight.
(Oops, I think I missed a spot of glitter!)
Don't those eyes look great in the sunlight?
And a pair of eyes are peering through the fence?
It can also be hung on a tree to greet your party guests:
Cheshire cat, anyone?
The bats look like they are right at home!
So many cool possibilities!
