Alexandra Renke :: Halloween Treats and Tricks!
Happy Halloween, my friends! Being that it's October 31st, I just had to pop in and share some more Halloween fun with you. This time, I'm using the Alexandra Renke Halloween dies, which have been so fun for whipping up tricks and treats (but mostly treats!).
I started with some cute treat bags, because this is the time of year when you can't have too many of those! I'm using orange and black striped bags from Whisker Graphics, which I picked up a few years ago. You can fill them with whatever you like, but if you don't want to get tricked, I'd advise NOT putting raisins in them!! (Side note: My grandma ALWAYS gave out tiny boxes of raisins for Halloween and I never liked raisins until I was an adult. Both of my kids--5 and 8--love raisins, though, so they'd probably be pretty happy about getting some :)
For an extra accent, I attached ribbons and black sequin trim with the tag and the spooky-cute garlands. They're so sweet and were pretty easy to make, too!
This card accidentally is similar to the treat bags in that the ghosts are looking like garlands again, only this time, they're horizontal instead of vertical.
I splattered my card with some orange watercolor paint first and then attached the stringy apparitions to the card with 3-D foam dots.
More silvery Thickers, but a different font this time, spell out BOO!
I hope you have an awesome Halloween if you're celebrating it tonight, whether you enjoy trick-or-treating with your children, passing out candy to the neighborhood kids, or turning off your porch light and curling up with a scary movie. My husband and I just finished watching The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix and it was SO. GOOD. I highly recommend it if you're looking for something creepy and surprisingly emotional (for a horror show).
Happiest tricks & treats!
