Hello Maja Design fans and friends!  Nancy Hanttula here again.  Today I would like to share a Halloween banner that I created using papers from both the Vintage Autumn Basics and Vintage Winter paper collections.

I started by picking out the papers that I wanted to use to cover the Ranger tags that I would be using in the banner.


I adhered the papers onto both sides of the tags, inked the edges and then decided on the various embellishments that I wanted to incorporate.


I knew that I wanted to use some the heritage photos that are on the Heritage paper in the Vintage Autumn Basics collection…but I wanted to give them a Halloween flair.

So, after I cut out the pictures I wanted to use, I added some hats.

I used some ephemera pages from Glitz Designs in between my tags to further create the Halloween atmosphere.

To create the spider web effect, I simply used my hot glue to draw out spider web lines.  The fine strands of hot glue that normally irritate me so, just added to the spider web effect.


Particular papers used here included:  Vintage Autumn basics:  front & back of No. IX, No. XXI (front), and front & back of No. X;  Vintage Winter paper used:  Vi Onskar Er – Wishing You (back).


Other supplies used for this project included:  hole punch; Tombow Permanent adhesive; hot glue & glue gun; Glitz Design ephemera paper; Prima packaging; Prima flowers; EK Success flourish stickers; small orange frame from Michaels; Tim Holtz metal “Halloween” adornments; TH Distress Stain in Persimmon; Prima chalk ink in Dry Sand, Rusty Bucket, Branch Bark, & Black Coal; natural twine; Martha Stewart black lace; and buttons & ribbon from my personal stash.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my latest creation.  I hope something here has inspired you to create something amazing today!
