Homemade Halloween Decoration

Create an easy tabletop Halloween decoration using some of your favorite Stampin' Up! Halloween Designer Series Paper and coordinating card stock.

I started with an inexpensive 5x5 black frame purchased from a local craft store. I had some leftover SU! Cast-A-Spell DSP from making another project, so I used those leftovers to punch out the squares. I layered them on coordinating card stock punched out with the Scallop Square Punch. Once my focal piece was created, I simply created 5 layers alternating black with colored card stock. What do you think?

I have this framed paper artwork on my end table next to a halloween decorated tree. It matches it perfectly! What's fun about making your own decorations is that they are one of a kind. People will ask where you bought it and you can proudly say you created it!

If you have any questions on how to make this decoration, please don't hesitate to e-mail me. I'd love to help you!


Recipe (all supplies from SU! unless noted otherwise):
Designer Series Paper: Cast-A-Spell (#115677)
Card Stock: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
Tools: Scallop Square Punch (#112081), 1 3/8 Square Punch (#103375),
Black 5x5 frame from local craft store
