When we discussed how to decorate our offices, we all went together to the Dollar Store during our lunch break to see what we could find. It is during that hunt that I found the crow I used for my 3D project, but also some glitter-covered chipboard pieces, a spiderweb some cute containers and a glittered "Danger" sign.
The spiderwen had an ugly green plastic spider on it, which I took off, and then I used it as a mat underneath my Halloween tree, if you look closely at yesterday's picture. I thought I could use the chipboard shapes to add to a die-cut Halloween banner, so I grabbed the now-retired Pennant die and created the following bannner with it:
I used the Scaringbone and Howlstooth Designer papers and the Typeset Alphabet Bigz dies. I die-cut the letters out of thin chipboard, covered them with Tombow liquid glue and added Champagne glass glitter. I then matted the rosette with a mix of rosettes and die-cut doilies. You can see the skull and ghost chipboard pieces at each end of the banner.
As for the Danger sign, I hung it on my office door. And while talking ideas with my colleagues, I thought that we could make planks to barricade our office windows. The girl thought it was an interesting idea, so I went around looking for something to make the planks with and thought of using empty paper boxes. I took the boxes apart, cut them in long rectangles and tore the ends off, then drew nails on them with a black marker. SO simple - and inexpensive!! Here's how it turned out:
