A Frightful Sight

Oh, Halloween is near, and I am more excited for it than I have ever been! I'm usually no fan of Halloween, but I think Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog this year has gotten me into the spirit! I've decorated, and made lots of fun projects! Here is one of my favorite Halloween projects I've done this year!

I got my inspiration from The House of Smith's. How does mine compare?! :) Don't answer that!
Anyway, you'll never believe the material I used to make this. Can you guess? Take a closer look...

It is the packaging paper that comes in our Stampin' Up! shipments! So smart, huh? To do this I cut pieces of the packaging paper to the size of a regular 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of cardstock as best I could. I then used Snail Adhesive to adhere the packaging paper to a sheet of cardstock. I used my Simply Scored Tool to score on the short side every half inch. I then cut each piece in three pieces. It took 2 pieces to make each rosette. After cutting, I folded the pieces, accordion style, and used Sticky Strip to attach the two pieces together. I kept the rosettes together by using Dimensionals a circle punched cardstock. I then punch circles, embossed them with the Spider Web Embossing Folders, and attached them to the rosettes. I used the Morning Post Alphabet to spell out "fright" with craft ink. I heat embossed the letters with black embossing powder, punched out the letters with a circle punch, and attached them to my Spider Web Embossed Circles. I used Linen Thread as my string, punch holes at the top of the rosettes, and strung them on the thread. This looks perfectly frightful on an old window!
