Boo! Halloween Tag

Happy Friday! It has been a long day today, but a good one!!!

To start the day was a little chilly and rainy, but so gorgeous as more fall colors are peeking out. I spent some time outside just enjoying the sights and the cooler air. I was able to substitute today and was blessed to be with a bunch of kiddos and making relationships with those who work at the school. And then this evening, I group of ladies that I love dearly got together for bible study and what a blessing to share in God's word. Tonight my heart is overwhelmed with joy!

I'm continuing tonight with my 31 Days of October projects. Tonight I have another tag to share. This one was really easy to put together and could be massed produce if you need lots of tags for this Halloween without much effort at all.

The file I used for this is from Treasure Box Designs.

It is literally five pieces of paper (and some eyes which can either be cut out and glued on or just stamped on to make it even easier), ribbon, a button, and some twine. I got my moon, bat, and ghost from the Boo-ti-ful You file from Treasure Box Designs. I am using the same tag that I have used the last several days with the other tags I have made. 

So pick out your papers. My design paper is from Doodlebug Design's Ghouls and Goodies collection. I cut the base layer of the tag in black and then the design paper and glued it to the base. The moon was cut in a pale yellow and inked with three colors of Memento Ink - Dandelion, Cantelope, and Potter's Clay - to give it a nice glowing effect. Apply them in the order I listed keeping the color closer the edges with each new color. I use a make-up sponge to apply the ink. I glued the bat and ghost to the moon and then used foam tape to attach it all to the tag. I cut a couple of strips of ribbon and threaded them through the hole in the tag that I made with a hole punch. I then secure the ribbon with the button and some Totally Orange Trendy Twine. To finish it off, add a fun sentiment. Mine is from the My Craft Spot's Batty for You stamp set (unfortunately this company is closed). 

Thank you for floating by today! I hope you will be back.
