Spiderweb Shaker Card for Halloween

Halloween AND shaker cards?? Yes please!

I really feel good after making a shaker card. They are just so interactive that adults and kids enjoy them.

Let me show you what I did to make this spiderweb shaker card!

Spiderweb Shaker Halloween Card

Supplies:

Steps:

1. Place your spiderweb over your marbled paper  (4″ x 5 1/4″) and trace the outline. Cut out with your craft knife.

2. Adhere a window sheet to the back of your marbled paper to cover the hole. Stick foam adhesive strips around the hole, and add sequins and glitter. Peel off the backing for the foam strips and adhere the same size (4″ x 5 1/4″) orange cardstock over it.

3. Flip the shaker over (shake and test it of course!) and glue your spiderweb die-cut on the front of the window sheet.

4. Stamp your halloween sentiment on a scrap of black cardstock and emboss with the glow-in-the-dark embossing powder (I LOVE this stuff!), and adhere it to the front of the card.

5. Cut your black card stock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and fold in half. Glue your shaker to your black card front.

Spooky Halloween Card using the Stampin Up Sheltering Tree set!

I believe you can make great holiday cards from your “everyday” stamps.

Recently, I used the Beautiful You stamp set from Stampin Up to make a fabulous halloween card. And you can bet I’ll be posting more halloween ideas for the next couple of weeks, so I hope you hit the follow button if you haven’t already!

This is yet another example of using everyday stamps for great holiday cards:

Using the Sheltering Tree stamp and the grass from the Enjoy Life set, I was able to make a spooky halloween card, and this card turned out spookier than I expected!

Supplies:

Spooky Steps:

  1. Cut the black cardstock in half to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half for your card base.
    • Cut a 4″ x 1″ strip and reserve for later.
  2. Cut the white cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 4″.
  3. Stamp the grass from the Enjoy Life set on the white piece in black, and heat emboss. Stamp and emboss your halloween sentiment, too.
  4. Sponge a few smudges of Berry Burst on the white piece, over the embossed grass and sentiment, then sponge Gorgeous Grape over the pink.
  5. Stamp your sheltering tree (without the leaves of course!) in black.
  6. Adhere the black strip below the grass, and adhere the ribbon over it and around the back.
  7. Adhere stamped piece to the black card base. Add bat stickers (or stamp them)!

Halloween Candy Crate Treat Holder

Anything that holds candy can be super adorable, even when it’s for the spookiest holiday!

I was looking for a simple treat holder for trick-or-treaters when I created this. We get a lot of kids and wanted something quick and easy, yet cute!

It’s also quick enough to make multiple of these candy crates, making them a good idea for a teacher to make for their students, a “room parent,” or anyone who wants to make something cute for the candy-lovers in their life!

Check out my easy tutorial for this halloween candy crate below.

Supplies:

And your favorite Candy, of course! I lived in Hershey, PA for a few years, so of course the kisses (wrapped in orange foil) went into the treat bag!!

Just a few easy steps:

  1. Create the Crate.
    • Use the Wood crate framelit to cut two pieces out from the wood textures paper. I was able to cut both from a single sheet of 6″x6″.
    • Fold and Glue together.
  2. Use the Cat Punch with a black cardstock scrap for your black cat.
    • Glue to the front of your crate.
  3. Stamp the moon from Wood Words in Mango Melody on a white cardstock scrap.
    • Die cut using the wood crate framelit set.
    • Glue to the front of your crate.
  4. Stamp a sentiment for your tag on a white cardstock scrap using Mango Melody ink.
    • Cut out using the wood crate framelit set.
  5. Fill the bag with candy and tie it up 12″ of your with your bakers twine.
    • Don’t forget to tie your tag onto it!
