day 131: halloween garland

halloween garland :)
day 131 and i am making a halloween banner today thanks to a free printable template from paper crave and also thanks to the free printable party pack from krysten at clickable party.   both are pinned to my holiday goodness board on pinterest.

i am using the sheet of patterned paper that comes in krysten's printable party pack to print off and then reprint the templates off on the freshly patterned paper.

printed out the patterned paper then feed it back through
the printer to print the templates out on it :)

once ALL that cutting was finished i threaded the four characters together with embroidery floss.

ready to connect together with embroidery floss

the finished garland

you can see why it took so long to cut
them out aye!

outcome:  this took HEAPS of cutting but it is really cute and it had to be for that amount of knife work! yikes, my hand is still sore but when i threaded it together i saw why it was worth it because they will look so cute along the window for the party ... hopefully they will last and i will be able to use them again in the future as i don't think i will do them again :)  love the finished product though, maybe i could give this job to the kids in the future!~

my thanks once again to krysten at clickable party for the well used  free printable party pack and also to paper crave for their wonderful free halloween templates ... totally love them just not the cutting!
