Halloween Accordion Tag
I think I've said it before, but I love Halloween. This little accordion tag card was made for a shop here in town and I thought I would share it. I really like it and it looks really cute on a shelf or in a windowsill.
It's very simple - For this one I cut a piece of black CS 3 3/4" tall and 8 1/4" long. Score every 2 3/4" for your accordion folds. Choose your CS and DPs along with your images and refer to the photo for placements - there really is no right or wrong - it's all up to your own particular taste - that's really the fun of it. Some of the layers I used deckle edge scissors, and some just a straight edge. Each image is trimmed in silver stickles for a vintage look. On the orange panels in opposing corners I stamped the spider web from the Halloween Fun set by Crafty Secrets (link is in the sidebar) Punch holes in the top of each tag section and tie on several ribbons and fibers of your choice in each one. Adhere puffy bat - you're done. Just have fun with it. Also, the images on both ends are from Crafty Secrets and the one in the middle I'm not sure where I got that one.
Have a great day and spend some time doing what you love. Take Care
