Spark Letterpress Thanksgiving

I’m really digging these Halloween and Thanksgiving letterpress cards from Spark Stationery. Not only are they beautifully designed, but they also have the snark going on. And isn’t vampire doggie, a.k.a. Halloween Henry, adorable? See all of Spark’s holiday cards, including Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year designs, here.

Halloween Party Invitations

Need quick invitations for your Halloween shindig? Today’s printable is Halloween mini-vites, and I’ve made some smaller versions of the silhouette garland shapes for you to use as stickers. Simply, print them out, fill them in, and either put them in glassine envelopes (I bought mine at Paper Source), or hand them out as is.

If you print the stickers onto cardstock, you can also use them as gift tags, treat bag tags, wine glass charms, or you can make a mini version of the garland!

Paper Crave Halloween Freebies : Spooky Bois Boxes and Stickers

Halloween Treat Boxes

If you’ve read Paper Crave for any length of time, then you know how I love pretty much anything faux bois. The printable Halloween paper craft of the day is what I call my Spooky Bois Treat Boxes.

The boxes are large enough that they should fit any fun size candy bar (not Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, but why would you be giving those away?!) or an array of smaller candies and treats. They would also work well as favor boxes or even small gift boxes, and I’ve included stickers, too!

Paper Crave Halloween Freebies : Halloween Garland Two Ways

Halloween Garland

Materials needed for this project:
Garland Templates or Silhouettes (links below)
A Printer
Cardstock
Scissors
Xacto Knife (optional)
A Needle and Thread

Thoughts of creating a Halloween garland were swirling in my mind for months, and this is the result of my experimentation. The garland is made of four spooky cute illustrations, and the one pictured was created the first way, which involves cutting templates, tracing them onto black cardstock, and cutting the shapes out with scissors and an Xacto.

However, I got to thinking that not everyone may have the time to make the garland this way, as it is somewhat more time intensive. I also thought that it may be more difficult for young children to take part in cutting out the shapes if you made the garland using templates. With these things in mind, I made a second version of the garland. Just print the silhouettes onto cardstock or heavy paper and cut on the dotted lines. Thread the shapes onto your choice of hanging material, and you’re good to go!

These spooky silhouettes can also be used as gift tags or hang tags, treat bag decorations or, if you have a white or metallic paint pen, you can make them into name tags.

This is a shot of the threading process. I used black sewing thread and a needle and sewed up through the right side of the shape, sewing a second hole down through the left of the shape, and coming out the left side. This allowed me to slide the shapes over to the right as I threaded them onto the garland. The two hole “technique” allows for easy re-positioning, but it holds the shapes in place nicely, too. After all of the shapes are threaded, hang your garland on a wall or wherever, and enjoy!
