Halloween Bat Banner

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here with some fun Halloween décor! I love how my We R Memory Keepers tools not only help me make cards and layouts, but I can use them to create customized home décor! This shelf is in our kitchen and while the Ruler Studio lights and felt garland were cute, the shelf needed color and some more spooky cute accents. Grabbing the Banner Punch Board, I made this batty banner quickly.

After measuring my orange card stock to the size that would work best for my shelf, I used the Banner Punchboard to cut the shapes. I repeated the same sizes and cuts with Clearly Posh Acetate Sheets. The overlay added a fantastic amount of texture and interest. The other thing I was impressed with was how well the Banner Punch Board held the transparency in place while I cut it. I expected the slippery paper to slide, but the magnets worked perfectly!

To adhere the clear sheets to the cardstock, I applied a strip of adhesive to the very top of the card stock. The acetate was adhered, but I hid it with a simple strip of black cardstock.

The bats were created with card stock and Honeycomb Pads. After creating wings from card stock, circles were cut from the Honeycomb pad. The dimension added to the bats is pretty fun!

To hang the batty banner from the shelf, I punched a hole on each side of the top of each banner. My Crop-A-Dile made quick work of that as it cuts through all the layers with ease. Twine was strung through the holes, making adjusting the spacing and length of the twine simpler.
