Hi everybody! Helena here to share some Halloween projects using Petaloo flowers, Graphic45 papers and Xyron adhesives with you.
First, I have three cards to show you. But, these are not any cards - they can be sent, of course, but I have chose to display them as a Halloween home decor project using a frame I found at the local dollar store. When I first saw this - very - orange frame, I thought I would have to paint it white to use it. But when I saw the amazingly colorful papers from Graphic45 and started to create with them and Petaloos textured flowers, I decided to use the frame just as it is. I only bought one frame (since it is very orange!), but I intend to switch the cards from time to time. That way I get a new home decor piece every time!
I have used the Graphic45 Steampunk Spells papers, diecuts, stickers and chipboard for all the cards, using the paper Vintage Voyage as a base. I have used Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the papers and diecuts.
Here is my next card on display. For this card I also used the Vintage Voyage paper, adhered it to black cardstock with Xyron Mega Runner. I have decorated this card with Petaloo's black Textured Blossoms, amber Textured Blossoms and a grey mini Textured Blossom, using Xyron Adhesive Dots.
For my third card I used the same paper, Vintage Voyage from Graphic45, and Xyron Mega Runner as adhesive. I have also cut out some hot air balloons from the Pumpkin Power paper and adhered them using the Xyron Create-a-sticker mini Dispenser.
After I finished my three cards, I decided to make something fun to put next to my frame. I have decorated a mini birdhouse and turned it into a haunted birdhouse! I have used the paper Witching Hour from Graphic45 and Petaloo textured flowers, black and grey, and small yellow Darjeeling Petites. I have adhered the flowers using Xyron Adhesive Dots.
I wonder if any bird would dare moving into this little house?
