happy haunting mini card set {MFT release day}

Hi there!

It's MFT's new release day! As you read this, everything you need for halloween projects and more is available in the MFT store.

I love making things ahead of time. It doesn't happen often, but it makes me feel like I've got life under control :)  I made a little halloween card set for my little 4 year old Maia to dole out to her preschool friends come Halloween.

First off, the finished package.  I couldn't just give them to Maia, all willy-nilly in a plastic bag.  I grabbed a clear card box (from Simon Says Stamp) and cut it down to my desired height (which is code for I can't remember how high the box is and I am writing up this post from our beach house in Virginia where there isn't a way to go back and check.) I then die-cut a spider web cover-up die-namics but didn't cut it all the way. The rest of the strip travels under and around the box to create a closure.

Inside, a collection of orange polka dotted envelopes, cut with the new envelope die from the you've got mail die-namics.

When she hands them out to her friends, this is what they'll see:

I closed the envelopes with a strip of washi tape each, and a dangling spider to pull on...

Yank the spider out for some halloween fun:

hee.

I used the centerpieces spooky window die-namics for the dangling spider and the spooky scene die-namics for the big "boo" punchline.

I hope you like what I've created and happy shopping!

  5. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly dont know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
    I have been checking out a few of your stories and its pretty clever stuff. I will make sure to bookmark your blog.
