I believe that creativity is a powerful skill that can be practiced and developed. I hope my blog inspires you to find your very own "creative lment". ~LM
This year, I really wanted to design some serious halloween paper crafts as gifts for a few of my closest peeps. I envisioned a vintage pallet of cream, black and orange, and day dreamed of paper medallions and glitter accents. I was a tad nervous about the glitter, since I do not normally use it, but was thrilled with the final results.
I had seen other versions of DIY wall bats on Pinterest and knew that it was something I wanted to try myself. I was impressed (and a tad creeped out) with how real the bats appeared once I had finished putting them in place! Taking inspiration from Disney World Imagineers, I used their technique of forced perspective. In fact, if you were standing by my bats up close, you would see that there are three (3) different sized bats used. The forced perspective creates movement and depth (and in my opinion, a touch of magic!).
To share some Halloween spirit with friends and coworkers, I decided to make up some festive treat bags. As you can see, I have a slight obsession right now with medallions – so I was determined to add some here as well. This style favour bag holds 3-4 miniature candies or chocolate treats, filling them out perfectly.
I also designed these cute sleeves which are perfect for small bars or flat treats. If you have health conscience folks who you want to include in the Halloween festivities, these are especially great for granola, fruit or energy bars (as well as small flat dark chocolates).
My “kids” could not resist getting into the Halloween spirit too. I found these collars at the local dollar store – aren’t they cute!
Happiest of Halloween’s everyone, stay safe and have fun! ~LM
