Witchy-poo Fumble

Looks like this witch hit a bit of turbulence.

Halloween is just 10 days away and I've been spending time creating a few more projects, like this one.  Breif directions along with a printable template for the shoes by selecting the link:

Start by stuffing the cello bags with candy making sure to leave room attach shoes and to tuck into cauldron.  Print shoes, cut and apply glitter.

To create broom, cut a 2" peice of Daffodil cardstock, brush with mustard and Suede ink, then roll around a wooden dowel or stick.  Secure with adhesive.

Use a circle punch to create a moon and Grey cardstock to create a cloud.

To create a cauldron, cut a black sheet of cardstock similar to the shape below.  You'll want to stay under 4 1/4" in width so it fits on the card.  The green foam is Easter basket fiber.

Fold the cello in half and attach the shoes on each end.  Tuck the folded end of the cello into the cauldron and adhere with glue dots or sticky strip.

Thanks for looking.

This is awesome! I hope you don't mind, but I am going to case this one! I have only ever made a few Halloween cards but I think this deserves an exception!! I think before the glitter I'll emboss the shoes with one of my Tim Holtz embossing folders. and to think that I usually throw away my broken little sticks!

Thanks so much for offering the idea!

This is totally awesome! I have only ever made a few Halloween cards in my life, but this idea is definitely a keeper! I hope you don't mind but I am going to case this one! I think before I add the glitter to the shoes I'll use one of my Tim Holtz embossing folders to emboss it, and then maybe heat emboss it with a clear glitter embossing powder.

Thanks so much for sharing this idea!
