Thank you for visiting my blog today for the “Enjoy Every Moment October Blog Tour”. If you’re following the Blog Tour, then you’ve just come from Marisa Huang’s blog at http://bellaconfetti.blogspot.com/.
Since I mostly post card samples on my blog, I thought I would showcase some home decor projects. “Spooky Things” is Stampin‘ Up!’s Decor Elements vinyl images that can be easily applied to glass for some fun Halloween decorations. You get 10 images for $14.95 and I only used 7 on the projects shown here. I purchased the glass containers and frame at a local craft store, cleaned them with a glass cleaner and then applied the Decor Elements. You can view a video tutorial from Stampin‘ Up! and see how easy it is to apply the vinyl images from our Decor Elements line at: http://www.stampinup.com/us/enu/product_videos_decor_elements.asp.
I tied a pretty bow around the top of the jar with our Black Striped ribbon and then filled with candy. If you limit the colors of the candy to just a couple, then you can see the Decor Elements images better.
On this glass container, I cut apart the “trick-or-treat” phrase to arrange the words vertically instead of horizontally:
I filled the jar with treats made using the “Candy Wrapper” die from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I wrapped each container with a strip of the “Wicked Fun” Designer Series Paper (1 7/8″ x 6″), stamped a sentiment from “Grateful Greetings”, punched with the Scallop Square punch and added to the front with Dimensionals.
Ink: Tangerine Tango
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Wicked Fun DSP
Accessories: Spooky Things Decor Elements, Candy Wrapper die, Square Scallop punch
When you put the back piece in, just make sure the ends of the ribbon are outside. The bow is tied to the top loop of the ribbon.
Thank you so much for visiting me today! I hope you enjoyed the projects and will be inspired to use Decor Elements in your holiday decorating
