Boo Halloween Tag by Sarah


Boo Halloween Tag




2 x Tando greyboard tags size 8

TaTando grab bag of spiders

Tando Alphas Sheet style Block Serif

NEW Tando dotty stencil

White modelling paste

Halloween patterned paper

Rusty wire

Black Cardstock

Foam pads

Autumn coloured ribbons



First I took 2 greyboard tags and covered them in some Autumn coloured gelli print paper I had previously made. Once dry I trimmed them down and gave them a little sand around the edges. Next I took some water colour crayons and randomly added some more colour to the tags to brighten them up.

I took the new dotty circle stencil from Tando and added white modelling paste to random parts of the tags. One dry I cut one in half as I only needed the bottom half.

Next it took some Halloween themed paper and added torn pieces here and there to the tag for texture.

I took a big spider web patterned paper and added it to the tag. I painted 3 spiders in black and added them to the tag. I also cut out some pumpkins from another patterned paper and added them to the bottom of the tag.

To finish, I matted some little rectangles of coloured scrapbook paper onto black card stock. I added them to the bottom piece of tag with foam pads before gluing on my boo alpha’s. I tied the two pieces together with rusty wire before hanging it up with some Autumn coloured ribbons.

I hope you have been inspired to crack out the modelling paste and stencils or trying a bit of Halloween fun. This tag WAS going on my lovely Autumn coloured mantle piece with my newly made fabric pumpkins, but it’s been snaffled by my Halloween mad daughter already.

Thanks for looking
