Hey there We R fans, Laura here today. Halloween will be upon us very soon! I like to get a jump start on party planning ahead of time. Today, I am sharing how to embellish some cute Halloween party favors using the new Foil Quill Freestyle Pen.
Plug in and allow your Foil Quill Freestyle Pen to heat up.
Start by filling a 4 x 4 photo sleeve with Halloween favors. I filled mine with some candy pumpkins, a jelly bracelet, stickers, an eraser, and a small bat ring. Use the FUSE tool to close the top of the photo sleeve to create a little bag.
Next, use papers from the DCWV Happy Halloween stack to create a bag topper. To do this, cut a piece of cardstock 4 ½” wide by 4 inches tall. Use the scoring tool to score the paper at the 2” mark. Fold the paper in half and attach to the top of the bag using adhesive.
Next, create two banner shapes to attach to the front of the bag using the banner punch board. The first strip of patterned paper is 4 ½” long and 2” wide. Then, cut a strip of black Foil Quill cardstock 2 ½” wide.
Using the Foil Quill magnetic mat, first lay down a blank sheet of paper (to catch any foil that extends beyond the cardstock), then the strip of black cardstock, and on top a sheet of orange foil. Use the magnets to keep everything in place. Extend the foil a little above the top edge and side of the cardstock strip.
Use the standard tip to draw a spiderweb and spider in the upper left corner. I drew a little spider hanging off the web and then wrote Happy Halloween.
Cut the bottom of the black cardstock strip using the banner punch board to create a 4” long flag. I added a small Halloween puffy sticker to the bottom of each tag to give them a little extra dimension.
The foil detail is so much fun! It doesn’t take much longer than simply writing on the banner shape with a regular pen or marker.
Clip the two banner shapes onto the favor bag using a bat clothespin. These adorable Halloween party favors are perfect to hand out at your Halloween party, get together, or class party.
