7. Add green star stickers to the card front as shown.
Tammy Chenault DECORATING FOR HALLOWEEN is absolutely one of my favorite things to do! And if I can make the décor myself, all the better. Handmade décor is a fabulous way to have fun crafting and to decorate with personality. The Cricut® Happy Hauntings cartridge is a great, tried-and-true resource for your Halloween crafting – check out how Laurel Seabrook used it to make this darling witch’s hat (found on pages 28-29 of the October issue of Cricut Magazine®) and get inspired to make your own Halloween masterpieces! You’ll also want to visit cricut.com for more spooky-cool cartridges available right now, like A Frightful Affair and Movable Monsters.
Happy Halloween!
