Its garden tour time again, and we would like to “treat” you to a Halloween Garden Walk. Don’t worry, just treats – no tricks!
Please note: I’m off to go camping with the Girl Scouts this weekend (wish me luck) so my post is going up early. The hop officially starts at 10:00 am EST on Saturday.
Take a stroll through the blogs of all the Paper Gardeners and enjoy some not-so-spooky inspiration. This month we are focusing on Halloween – mostly on ways to serve up all those Halloween treats.
While you visit, take note of each designer’s name and their special Halloween treat in their blog post. Once you finish your garden tour, send an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the list of designers and their garden walk word.
Everyone who sends the correct list of designers and words will be entered in a random drawing to win a prize. You need to send an e-mail to the address above; please don’t leave your list as a comment. You have until midnight (EST) on Wednesday, September 22 to send your list.
And the prize? How a bout this super cute set of Eat Cake Graphics Halloween stamps?
Here is the garden tour guide list. I hope you find some “Boo”tiful ideas…..
For my treat project – I decided to decorate one of the little plastic purses (daughter M really loves these!) with a friendly Halloween theme.
Here is the front:
And here is the back:
The images are from the Pumpkin Pals cling set and the sentiment is from the Happy Halloweenie cling set. Both sets contain some of my all time favorite Halloween images from Eat Cake Graphics.
The box comes with a white satin ribbon handle and I wanted to jazz it up a bit. So I pulled out some black checkered ribbon from the “I Want It White” embellishment collection. This collection contains all kinds of ribbon and other embellishments that you can color with your Copics to match your projects (love that about my Copics!!).
I just went over the ribbon with my orange (YR-07) copic. While I was at it I colored some scrappers floss (also in the I Want it While collection) to thread my bottons with.
I colored the pumpkin images and matted them on black. I stamped the sentiment and made and orange and black matte for it. I also colored some scrappers floss black for the orange buttons. Here are all my project pieces – ready to assemble.
I pierced the box tab with my paper piercer to attach the button with the colored scrappers floss. I also added buttons to my sentiment (the orange buttons came from the Tutti Frutti button mix).
I simply swapped out the ribbon handle (you could also just color the existing satin handle with Copics if you wish).
Then I just added the pumpkin images and sentiment (and added some yummy Reeses Peanut Butter cups!).
I’m Cathy and my Garden Walk Treat is Snickers.
I hope you are up for more treats. Next in line is Amber – and she has a BIG treat for you!
