Well it just so happened as I scrolled down my facebook page that Creative Memories had posted a cute ghost topper. When I saw it I knew that was what I was looking for.
So straight to my craft room I went and rounded up what I needed:
Three sandwich baggies filled with candy, white cardstock, glue, scissors, stapler, paper trimmer and google eyes.
First I measured the width of the bag and decided how far I wanted the topper to cover the front. Then I cut three toppers out of the white cardstock with those measurements and folder each in half.
Here is all three:
Next I stapled each topper to the top of each bag. (don't worry the staples won't show)
Now you are ready to start gluing your strips down. I started at the top and worked down. By the last topper I figured out that the more you angled the strips the better it looked so my last topper looks the best. Angle each strip in the opposite direction from the last. Once you have the strips all adhered down trim the ends even.
All that is left is to add the google eyes. I really should have used larger eyes but these were the biggest I had on hand. I thought about running into town and seeing if I could find bigger ones but time was not on my side this morning so I went with what I had.
They didn't turn out quite the way I wanted them too but they will do and are on there way so they will be there in time for Halloween.
Now I am off to finish decorating a pumpkin I started a week or so ago. I also have some more Halloween cards to share in my next post.
Have a wonderful fall day!
