Trick Or Treat

It’s PWA tradition that our design team member Christine Grabb gets first dibs on Halloween, her most favorite holiday of the year.  Christine’s creative ideas and “beadniques” are something that I always love to see!  If you like her style be sure to follow Christine on her personal blog:

Chriss tells us how she made this card below:

“I took some double-sided paper and made the base card, then I flipped the paper over and made a paper 'ribbon' from the print on the back side (yay! bats!); I couldn't get the tail right, so I ended up using the corner of a medallion shaped die.
Papertrey Ink stamps and die helped make the tickets out of more patterned paper and I added a some hand-dyed seam binding.  To finish it all off, I took a small square of O'So Sticky tape, removed the rubber liner and adhered it to some black paper, which I then punched with a bat.”

“I removed the paper liner and dipped it into Clear Mini Beads.  You could use the Black Opaque beads too, if you wanted a little less sparkle but I like a little bit of bling.  Stick it on with some foam tape and you're done!  Thanks for looking and stay tuned for more Halloween goodies!!”
