This month's Eileen Hull Inspiration Team post is very special to me! I recently got to see Eileen during her Paper Trail Tour and her energy is so contagious. I am so proud to see Eileen road tripping through the United States - meeting old friends and making new ones. It is an honor to be her friend and on her Design Team!!!
This month ends in the holiday that kicks of the Holiday Crafting Season!!! We will celebrate and craft up goodies for Halloween, then Thanksgiving and then... Christmas and New Years! This is a busy time - so I created a craft that has the "busy bee" in mind.
These tags can be used for a neighborhood "Boo" Bag, for bags of candy or for a Hostess Gift!
Here is the Supplies List for my "Boo" Tags:
1. Sizzix Products - Scoreboard Dies:
- Bigz Die - Tags #3
- Eileen Hull - Flower Layers with Heart Petals
- Eileen Hull - Labels & Buttons
- Eileen Hull - Borders & Hydrangeas
2. Kraft Cardstock Paper
3. Halloween Scrapbook Papers
4. Tape Runner Adhesive & Foam Dots
6. Ribbon and/or Twine
7. "Boo" rubber stamp and black ink stamp pad
8. Pumpkin (or any shape) paper punch tool
How to Make a "Boo" Tag
Step 1: DIE CUT: I first die cut the Kraft cardstock for the tags. I then die cut the Halloween Scrapbook Papers with the various Eileen Hull Designs dies.
Step 2: PUMPKINS: I then punched the Pumpkin pieces and stamped them with the word "Boo".
Step 3: GET CREATIVE: I then mixed and matched the Halloween Scrapbook Paper die cuts with the Pumpkin pieces. The pumpkin pieces are adhered with a foam dot and the Halloween die cuts are adhered with a tape runner adhesive, or Aleene's Turbo Tacky glue will work too for the smaller pieces!
Step 4: RIBBON & TWINE: I added a ribbon to the tags for a finishing touch and tied them with twine to mason jars filled with kraft colored shred and mini candy bars! I am planning to give them to some of my special friends who help me with my craft business.
Are you going to join the "Art with Heart Challenge" this month? I hope you do - we love to see what fun projects you create with Eileen's Sizzix Scoreboards!
