Halloween Prep - Day 3


I know, I know… it's only August. But good projects take time so all week long we are sharing great projects (and a chance to win PSA Haunted Shack Peel & Stick stamp set) for Halloween. Check out this fun gift idea for a hostess of a dinner party, your kid's teacher, or a birthday party favor. It is a beautifully designed tin of magnets by Jennifer Holmes. She's used stamps from UBU Happy Halloween, they are the most adorable Halloween characters you ever did see.










Here's a step instruction on how to complete this project. Start by designing the magnets.

  1. Stamp PSA UBU Happy Halloween characters on white paper
  2. Heat emboss and color them in with markers
  3. Use 1" circle punch to cut them out
  4. Adhere onto magnets
  5. Apply Mod Podge Sparkle to finish
Next design the tin.

  1. Choose two papers – a striped paper and solid, that work well. Find adhesive tape
  2. Glue together the papers, add adhesive tape in the middle as a border
  3. Stamp Happy Halloween sentiment and the UBU character of choice using your PSA Essentials Stamper with Orange & Black ink inside
  4. Color up the stamp
  5. Punch with a circle punch and adhere to black paper to frame
  6. Adhere to tin
Be sure to leave a comment to be entered to win! At the end of the week, we will choose one winner via Random.org to receive a free Haunted Shack Peel & Stick pack! One comment per day please.
