Are you ready for Halloween tonight? Got your candy? Costumes ready? Here at Paper Crafts magazine a few people dressed up for work but mostly it’s business as usual. That doesn’t mean we can’t have fun here on the blog! I’ve searched high and low to find these Halloween ideas and downloads just for you. Oh, I recognize it may be too late to make use of these ideas for this year, so tuck them away somewhere special and you’ll be ready for 2014!
Nothing says Halloween like the word Boo! This banner from Paper Crafts Party Ensembles is quick and easy. Print the pennant on a few spooky pieces of patterned paper, print the Boo letters on cardstock, cut everything out, string together, and you’re ready to go. For a little something extra, add ribbon, buttons, stickers, chipboard, or any other festive decor to the banner.
Download the PDF containing the patterns for the pennant and Boo letters.
