Halloween Swap

Just a very quick post, as I am soooo busy at the moment.  I was very late in putting my name down for Kimberly's September swap, I had somehow missed the original post. So the first thing I had to make after we got back, was the set of Halloween tags for the swap. Lol, oh the frustration! I know that Halloween is way more popular in the States, but I thought that I would at least be able to get some Halloween themed papers, stickers etc locally without resorting to the internet. Nope. Nada. Silch. And there was no time to order off the internet.

I didn't even have any plain orange paper, but I did have some scrunched up orange tissue paper an Etsy purchase had been wrapped in ( tehehe, thank goodness that I save just about everything ). I glued it to some paper so that I could run it through the printer. I used Glossy Accents on some of the  cut out images, like the cat and the skull, tinted the little witch green, and used some black lace and orange ribbons.  I also made a little orange bead dangle for each tag. I was surprised that I managed to find a few orange bits and pieces in my stashes, even though orange really isn't a favourite colour of mine.

I made five, only very slightly different tags -

If you are in the States, you still have time to enter the swap on Kimberly's blog. Tags are due Oct. 1, 2012.

It amazes me Liz how you always come up with just the right ingredients to create whatever theme is required.
These sure are fun tags for Halloween and I can see a few excited gals when they receive them.
