We decided to use left over bits and pieces from other Halloween Crafts to make some Halloween cards. Fortunately we have some pale-orange card stock lying around and our Bostik Bloggers box had stripey orange and white paper, which seemed a good match.
For this craft we used:
- Card stock
- Patterned paper
- Fingerprints left over from this spiderweb craft
- Glu Pen
- Black Marker
- Correction Pen
The first step is to cut the patterned paper to size so that it fits onto the card without totally covering it. Glue it to the centre of the front of the card stock.
Glue the spider bodies (fingerprints) randomly onto the card, then use the correction pen to make eyes and use a fine-tipped marker for eyeballs, legs and to write something, should you wish. This card turned out really well and we had plenty of fingerprints to spare, so we can make Halloween cards for everyone at the party.
We also made blow-monsters, where we placed blobs of paint on paper then used a straw to blow the paint into shapes, once dried we cut them out and drew faces onto them, so they made a blob monster garland. One of the left over bits of paper was used to make this card. While they are just random bits and blobs of paint, adding eyes, facial features and a few pen-lines turned them into a cool monster card… and I’m not a very artistic person, so I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out!
