Aj and I worked on making these cute owl invites with wings that open and shut. You can download the template for them here. Use a white colored pencil to draw on feathered wings and simply write what you want to say to guests or use as thank yous!

We also decorated simple paper cups as owls and little witchies. The kids were crazy about them.

You can also use enlarge these templates for various other uses – such as decorating a simple store bought cake! (don’t forget the witchy’s little wart! 😉

I made some Halloween themed papel picado from these pretty bright papers and cut everything out with a Cricut Explore. Makes it super easy to make a bunch of them! You cand download my designs here.

One of my favorite things to make was this paper strip hanging ghost. These guys will make a great impact to your home and party decor!

To make these I cut several 2″ strips of white Astrobright Paper. I then taped each 11″ strip to another one to make these ghosts extra long. Just use as many strips of paper as you want for however full you want your ghost to be. I then punched a hole in the top of each strip and secured with a large brad. To hang simply wrap a string around the brad and adher to the wall or ceiling. I added eyes and cheeks using Astrobright cardstock cut from various sizes of hole punches (i’m a bit obsessed with punches these days).

I love seeing these two together (in their cutest Pottery Barn costumes! Miss M wouldn’t wear her darling little swan headband but she was still so adorable). My oldest and youngest. I love how he looks out for her. So super sweet.

    I do consider all of the concepts you’ve offered for
    your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too short for beginners.
    May just you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.

    In order to complete your look check out the make-up tips provided
    by Total Beauty. Some dogs do like the attention heaped on them,
    while other pooches need to be conditioned or
    cajoled a bit to join the Halloween festivities all garbed
    in spooky or fancy attire. If you just want to add a bit of
    Halloween, you can add a metallic mask, reversible cape or carnival mask for less than $10.

    Here, the photographer can also conceal himself/herself
    from the involved party, including the digicam getting used.
    This style of pictures is totally about shut-up photographs of a particular subject.
    A photographer who’s into aerial pictures needs to
    be an skilled at capturing pictures from a excessive elevation.
