Graveyard Goodies Home Decor

Well, you know I'm a Halloween crafter.....I really love any and all Halloween home decor!  So this piece I created for my last Guest Designer post over at Trendy Twine was so much fun!  They are spotlighting their amazing Halloween twines, and this project uses Orange Licorice twine.  I really think it makes the project "pop"!!


A look at the lid--I started by inking the edges, covering with the Teresa Collins Masquerade Party paper, and then sanding and inking the edges:
 

And here it is all decorated up with chipboard, cut outs and Orange Licorice Trendy Twine:



Here's a closer look at how I used the twine as accents...and also as a border around the washi tape on the lid:



The inside of this treat box is filled with little goodie bags tied up with more yummy Orange Licorice twine:





Thanks for stoppin' by today.....and stop over to the Trendy Twine site to check out their amazing selection of twine!

Spooky Treat Jar with Trendy Twine!

Today I'm up over at Trendy Twine as a Guest Designer!  It's post two of three for the month!

If you are a regular follower....you know twine is my favorite go-to embellishment, and I've never found a better twine than Trendy Twine--colors and quality are both amazing!

My post is all about Halloween treats....this cute little jar to hold a few goodies for a party, or favor, or home decor:


I've used Orange Licorice Trendy Twine wrapped around the jar, and also to hang the cute tags.

The paper and stickers are from the Carta Bella Spooky collection.

Here is a closer look at the tags:

Creepy, Crawly Halloween

I've already said how much I love Halloween crafting.....I've got so many project to share....been crafting up a storm!  Here are a couple of cards I made using The Rubber Cafe' Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month for September:


This creepy cutie is made using Doodlebug's Ghouls & Goodies.  The spider is made using two circle punches and a bit of seam binding.  For a tutorial, check out my post over at The Rubber Cafe' blog HERE.

Just for fun, I'm also posting another card I made using the kit, it's all about a Happy "Howl-O-Ween":


Details on how to's for this card are over at The Rubber Cafe' blog as well....find them HERE.
