Another last-minute Halloween tutorial

Good Morning!

I have another quick and fun little Halloween project for you. Actually, it doesn't have to be for Halloween - you can totally change out papers and embellishments to taylor it for any holiday.

This is an altered medicine bottle I made using Graphic 45's beautiful washi tape set and An Eerie Tale paper line!

If you like the little spool in the first photo, I have a tutorial for that as well. :) Thanks so much for looking!

Upcycled Halloween ribbon spool

Hey there, crafty friends!

Long time no see! So much has happened since my last blog post. I knew back then that life would be even more unpredictable, so I had to put papercrafting aside. Lately, things have started to stabilize again, and my inner designer has been itching to play with pretty paper!

There are some fun things I'll post about soon, including a recent trip to Monroe, Washington to meet the amazing Teresa Collins, along with the most fabulous birthday gift I've ever received. ;)

But first, because this is time-sensitive, a little Halloween tutorial for all you Graphic 45 lovers!

I've been in love with Graphic 45's An Eerie Tale paper collection from the start. It's a beautiful, classic way to do Halloween and the line reminds me a lot of Happy Haunting. So naturally I had a few projects up my sleeve for it, including this easy upcycled Halloween ribbon spool! 

Here's the Snapguide tutorial I made for this ribbon spool. As with any tutorial, you're free to change up the papers you use - even the flowers and Stickles, too! I hope you enjoy. Stay tuned for more!
