Halloween Project!

Here is a cute little Halloween Countdown Calendar I have been working on here and there with the help of my 12 yo DD. We finished it today! We meant to complete the last few details last week but it just didn't happen! we started with a small 5x7 (ish) clipboard and painted it black with acrylic paints. I then modpodged SU! designer Halloween paper from 2 (or more) years ago onto the clipboard. I was gifted some stamped images of 'Booglie Eyes' from Amanda over at Inkspirations, thanks Manda!!

I colored the little monsters with Copics and some with Prisma pencils, they are irresistible! my DD, Rebecca used Word to print out the Sentiment and numbers, we used a free font we found online called 'Bleeding Cowboys' and '28 Days Later' and 'Halloween Spider' aren't they cool? We printed the sentiment and numbers on white PTI cs.

I then let my DD take over and design the calendar. I used redliner tape to stick down two round thin washers to the clipboard.

We then pulled a magnet of the fridge, one that is thin with advertisements all over it, and cut it into small rectangles and stuck them on the back of the tags using redliner tape. The tags stick onto the clipboard with ease. We still have to design a pocket for the spare tags to adhere to the back. We tied a multitude of ribbons in the best Halloween colors, to the top of the clipboard.
