Today I made a double scrapbook page for Halloween using Halloween patterned paper I bought in single sheets from Michaels. I have a plastic file folder for all my Halloween papers. I took a plastic paper holder that is made for 12" papers and is 1/2" deep. It has a nice lid which slides down over the top (there's a photo below - I wish I could remember where I bought it!). It's old so I have to find more like it for Christmas or camping themed papers. It's so nice to pull all the papers I need from one spot!
|I added Glossy Accents by Inkssentials over the bat and spider web.|
I used the October 31 Cricut cartridge on this one for the spider web, bats and the wicked witch. On one of the sheets of Halloween-themed patterned paper I cut out the Happy Halloween and Trick or Treat wording, mounted it on another patterned paper with orange, green and purple squares and then tied a bow on one end. I then tucked the other end under the moon, gluing one at the top of the page and the other at the bottom of the other page.

I also took our big popcorn bowl and used it as a template to cut out a moon. I cut the moon in half and glued black mesh over the top of it. To glue it down, I sprayed the mesh (outside - it stinks!) with Super 77 by 3M which is a great product for this type of job.
Each photo is mounted on one of the background colors: orange, purple or lime green for some unity. Thanks for looking!
