Happy Halloween!!

Ok- maybe it's a little too early for that, but I am happy (And it's never too early for CANDY)! I made my first banner / garland! I love them and I think mine turned out pretty cute:



I LOVED this paper and the idea to make a banner with candy shaped pieces just popped into my head one day! Good thing I found some thinner chipboard than the ones I originally bought!! Those are like 3x as thick as the ones I used for this... I think it would have taken me forever to cut all those pieces out! Some sugary vintage German glass glitter makes the cute lettering sparkle and I just love the silver bows... There are tiny little embellies "hidden" on each candy shaped piece, too! :)

Thank you for visiting and I hope you're having a wonderful day!

Great job. I like the sparkiles. I can see one for each season - you might just start a trend.
