My sister came across some old AOL CD mailers when she was cleaning. She asked me if I wanted them? Well, does a cat have a climbing gear??? Of course I wanted them!!! :-) I was sure I could come up with some type of crafty project and this is what I came up with. This Halloween project I created can be used as a photo/calendar/note holder or it can be tweaked and a mini album could be added.
First I when around the edges of the mailer with Gesso and let dry.
Next paint around the edges with black acrylic paint. Once dry Mod Podge over what has been painted with the black paint.
Cut a piece of Pumpkin Head Cardstock to fit both sides of the inside of the holder and glue down.
Cut two pieces of Purple Glitter Crackle Cardstock to fit the front and back of the outside of the holder. First emboss both pieces of cardstock with the D'vine Swirls folder and lightly ink both pieces with Stem Green Chalk ink. Adhere to holder.
Fussie cut the gate out from the Haunted House Cardstock and adhere three of the sides to the front to make a pocket. The other piece glue completely down.
Use Stickles to add a little bit of glitter to the eyes of the pumpkins on the gate. Next I fussie cut the owl and pumpkin image out from the Halloween Greetings digis. Cut and separate the pumpkin and owl image. The pumpkin will be used on the front of the holder and the owl will be used on the inside cover.
Now emboss the outer edge of the Chipboard Pumpkin with the Flourish embossing folder and adhere the owl on top of the pumpkin. Also emboss one of the bat chipboard pieces with the Flourish folder and adhere to the moon. Used the Scallop Square Duo to cut a square and adhere two of the sides to make a pocket.
I used My Crafty Life Printable Creative Planner and printed the little bird notes which I added a little witches hat to their heads.
The "beware" sign I printed from the computer and inked the front and edges with Stem Green chalk ink.
