Truly a 5 minute project!!!

After seeing her Mommy's pencils for school, my Granddaughter decided she needed some for her preschool class for Halloween.  The pencils were already made, so I took an empty Puffs canister (I KNEW that would come in handy someday) and cut out a black vinyl spider web and "Boo" in Cricut Design space (about 3.5") and stuck them on.  The canister turned out to be the perfect size for just a few pencils!  She's awfully excited to hand them out to her classmates tomorrow!

Haunted House Card using CTMH Artfully Sent

Create a Spooky Haunted House Card using 

CTMH Artfully Sent...


For the Slate colored Base on this Haunted House Card - I cut the "Sleeve + Shift" at 7" (Real Dial Size OFF) from pg. 43 of the Artfully Sent Handbook.  The Haunted House is from pg. 44 - continue at 7"(Real Dial Size OFF) using "Scene" (no shift).  You'll want to trim your card in half and save the solid piece of Slate for your scraps.  I paper pieced th window and door pieces to the back side of the house then attached it to the inside of the card.  I then cut the Spider from page 43 using "Icon" + Shift.  He was cut at 4" (Real Dial Size OFF). To finish the Card, I attached little googly eyes to the spider and used CTMH Stamp Set Frightfully Fun B1453 around the front frame of the card.  This Card was SO Fast to put together and I think it turned out pretty cute!
