Boo Letters

  To make these letters you need chipboard, Halloween paper, Halloween ribbon and Halloween Die cuts. All the paper used in this project is from SEI‘s paper line Spooks.  I just cut the paper to match the chipboard letter.  (The letters were already cut for me.  This makes it easier but you could cut your…

  Here’s an idea. Paint your pumpkins! I carved pumpkins every Halloween for forever! Then one year I was given a paper by my kids stating that the school wanted each of the kids to bring a character painted pumpkin for a pumpkin walk in the school halls.
