Vintage Inspired Halloween Banner

I'm so excited to share with you my project for the Xyron and Core'dinationsPetaloo Blog Hop!

I wanted a simple yet unique banner to hang this Halloween and wanted to combine my love of vintage photos of children in costumes with a bit of autumn whimsy. 

Cut five triangles out of Core'dinations Vintage Collections Retro Mod Squad cardstock and sanded the edges. 

Cut Jillian Dot Assorted Pack by Core'dinations into 4"x 6" squares and sand the edges and front of paper using Core'dinations Sand It Gadget.
 After printing out vintage Halloween images, run the photos thoughXyron 5" Create-A-Sticker Max and adhere to the cardstock.

Punch holes through the triangle and rectangle papers and thread bakers twine through them. 
Tie Petaloo Crotchet Lace Fancy Trim in between photos and triangles. Tie a bit of bakers twine around the middle of the lace. Embellish with Petaloo Darjeeling flowers using Xyron High Tack Adhesive Dots

Add mini clothespins to the top of the banner and place "Happy Halloween" sentiment on the middle of the banner using Xyron adhesive dots. 
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the Xyron and Core'dinations/Petaloo Blog Hop!

Elegant Witch Party Ensemble

How fun would it be to gather your favorite girls for a witches tea party? 
Today I have an elegant witch party ensemble I'd love to share with you. I created this using beautiful Whisker Graphics Gold Middy Bags and Xyron Adhesives.
What an honor it was to have this ensemble chosen as the favorite project of Sweetly Chic Events

Instructions for the hat:
Make a cone out of white cardstock, cut Horizontal Stripe Gold Middy Bag in half and cover the cone using Xyron Double Sided Tape to secure it. Cut out  woman silhouette and adhere to the front of the hat. Using scrap paper, cut out a mini hat and place on the silhouette. Embellish with a black feather plume, gem and the number 31. Using Xyron Double Sided Tape, line the bottom and top with tape and place tissue garland towards the top and bottom of the hat. 

Instructions for the goodie bag:
Make a rosette out of scrap paper and place on top of  Metallic Gold Chevron Middy Bag using Xyron Adhesive Dots. Place woman silhouette on top of rosette and embellish with a gem, feather plume and sticker. Add a bit of black basket shred inside the bag.

Instructions for the place setting:
Trace and cut out mask using a Gold Chevron Middy Bag. Punch holes on each side of the mask and thread Black Licorice Divine Twine through and tie in back of the pumpkin. Attach Gold Bitty Bag to wire and punch through the pumpkin. Adhere Halloween sentiment to the bag using Xyron adhesive dots.

 Run the pumpkin templates through your die cutting machine. Run two border templates through the Xyron 5" Creative Station. Attach the orange boarder around the black pumpkin. Sprinkle black chunky glitter on the second boarder and attach to the bottom of the favor bag using Xyron Adhesive Dots.
