Hello!I’m back with another papercrafting project for your home! This time, we are looking forward to Halloween … my favorite!
Today I am working with the brand new Bewitched collection by Echo Park Paper. This collection features the prettiest, sweetest witch you have ever seen and I couldn’t wait to feature her in my design!
You have probably seen the wood block decor that looks like the blocks are mounted on a candlestick with a knob adorning the top … well, I came across a cut file by MyScrapChick.com that mimics that look except every piece is made out of paper instead of wood! I couldn’t wait to give it a try!
I cut the base for each piece using Carta Bella Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock. After assembling, I used a white ink pad to give the edges a spooky and distressed feel.
The larger block is decorated with the adorable witch sticker from the Bewitched collection. She is flying her broomstick over a circular moon cut from the Trouble Brewing paper. I used the Happy Halloween die set to add a few bats to keep her company.
At the bottom of the witch block I added the “Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet” phrase sticker. I tucked in a floral sticker, the witch’s broom and a spooky cauldron.
The smaller block features the witch’s best friend, a black cat! I own a black cat myself, and so I love to add black cats in my Halloween decor as much as possible! This sweet little guy is peeking out of from a friendly Jack-O-Lantern sitting next to the jar of candy. I used flower stickers and a shiny, black satin ribbon on both blocks, tying them together visually. The sides of both blocks are also both decorated with panels of Witch Hats paper.
Do you have a favorite Halloween icon you like to add to your decor? For me, it is witches, black cats, and jack-o-lanterns … and I was so happy to be able to include all three on this project!
See you again soon!
