Halloween Banner

Back in July, I found the We R Memory Keepers Spookville line, and I just had to have it! I am the worst with Halloween paper, it is definitely my favorite paper - as long as it isn't scary at all!

After I bought the paper, I had an idea for a Halloween project - I wanted to make a banner the apartment. I first wanted it to say "Happy Halloween" or "Trick or Treat" but I realized, I didn't have anywhere to hang that up. So I kind of sat around with this idea in my head, waiting to figure out how to use it.

Then I though, I could hang it up on the front door (well, on the inside of the front door, we aren't allowed to decorate the outside). But it couldn't be as long as "Happy Halloween" or "Trick or Treat", because my door is just a normal sized door!

So I made this banner:

Yeah, I have no idea about the penny. I didn't even realize it was there until I uploaded the pictures! It must have fallen out when my bag fell off the chair last night...

This is a close up of the do you call one piece of a banner? I have no idea how to rotate the picture though!

To make the triangles:
Make a mark 6 inches across the bottom of the cardstock, then cut from the top right corner to the mark, then the top left corner to the mark.

To make the circles:
You need two 3" x 12" strips of cardstock. I used my score board to score every half inch on each strip, then folded them up like an accordion. Then, I attached the ends of the papers to get a circle, and flattened it out onto a piece of cardstock. (I'm thinking I'm going to make a video for this, because those directions should super confusing!)

The letters and the spiderwebs I cut from the Sizzix eclips Halloween and Scaredy Cat Alphabet cartridge.

Then I just layered it all up!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by :)
