CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Card stock
  • Glue
  • Mason Jars
  • Toothpicks
  • Bottles
  • Pumpkins
  • Black Faux Leather Contact Paper

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Making the Banner

Cut “PICK YOUR POTION” using the A Frightful Affair cartridge font (5.5” for shadow, 5.25” for top layer). I used a cream-colored card stock for the base and black faux leather contact paper for the top layer. Alternate font types for letters. Stick tops to shadows. Age base cream card stock using ink. For the back make accordion circles (search online - using 4" X 12" paper) and also fold 4" x 4" squares of paper accordion style. Glue these to the letters and string together using twine.
Step 2: Making the Skeleton

Cut out the skeleton from Movable Monsters to your desired size from cream-colored cardstock. Use black cardstock for the base. Using a brown stamp ink (I used Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in Aged Linen.) shade the edges of the skeleton to give it an aged look. Using a ruler, draw a martini glass on gray cardstock and cut using scissors. Cut a smaller triangle out of green card stock to make the liquid. Cut circles (using Cricut, hole punch, or freehand) to make bubbles. Freehand cut a top hat using card stock of your choice. Glue to skeleton. Lean skeleton against banner letters with glass raised.
