Last week I was invited to participate in a contest to become one of the 2014 craft bloggers for “12 Months of Martha Stewart Crafts”. I received a box full of Martha Stewart Craft goodness all in Halloween style, with which I was to create a crafty blog post. Oh what fun, I love a good challenge! I started with yesterday’s post, using the spider web punch to create some fun paper jewelry. In addition to the punch, I found the items in the photo below and decided to use them to create these colorful and very easy Halloween party decorations.
In these photos you will see the craft paper pad used for the colorful triangle bunting and the Halloween goody bags. I then added the adhesive border pad and die-cut borders to decorate the candy jars and food displays. The embossed pumpkin punch made a perfect cupcake topper and the gift labels from the craft paper pad were a great personalized decoration for the orange soda bottles. The pom pom spiders made spooky straw decoration and my favorite of all is the spider lace edge punch used to edge the black popcorn cones for some spidery goodness. I am munching on the popcorn as I write this.
For those of you who missed my earlier gift bag tutorial, here is another version that uses the two sided sheets from the craft paper pad to make these adorable goody bags. I had such a great time using these Martha Stewart Craft items to create this party. To me it is just not Halloween without Martha! Enjoy the tutorial below and we will see you Thursday for a DIY paper fall garland, Lia style. Cheers! ~ Lia
