DIY Halloween Bats

This week I've been helping a friend decorate their house for their Halloween party / wedding reception. His house is just amazing! Each room is unique and every time I visit I notice something I didn't see before.

We needed something for his formal sitting room that filled the large space but didn't over power the room. I've seen awesome pictures floating around Pintrest of paper bat and I knew I wanted to make them for this room. This is one of the simplest projects I've ever done but the result looks like I spent all day cutting and folding bats.

First I uploaded my bat image into Design Space. (Save this PNG to make your own!)

Then I added two score lines so the wings would fold, duplicated the bat at different sizes to fill my 8.5 x 11 card stock, and cut them out on the cardstock setting. I cut out about 50 bats to fill this wall.

These bats came out so cute and it took less than $2 worth of cardstock to make them. Maybe next year I'll get around to making some for my own home. 

I'd love to see your Halloween decorations! Comment on this post with your pictures or tag me on Instagram @KKuss.

Pumpkin Birthday

I'm finally done with Raven's 1st birthday invitations! These have been a labor of love. I can't wait to send these out. Now on to the decorations! :) 

Otterly Great Birthday!

I said I'd get started early on my husband's birthday card so I wouldn't have to rush last minute and I actually got it done! Whoo Hoo! I wanted to make something really awesome so I went to YouTube to find some inspiration. I started searching though Lawn Fawn's Channel and they had the coolest spinner card video tutorial. I decided this is what I wanted to make.

Last minute card

I'm not that experienced with paper crafts but since I got my Explore I've been trying to make cards when special occasions come up. Well, my aunt's birthday is in three days and I completely forgot about it until this morning! I had to whip up something fast (during nap times) today for her to get it by her birthday. 

I think it came out okay for being so rushed. I really need to start putting birthdays in my calendar. The next birthday coming up is my husband's and it's next week. So I think I'll get started on that one now.
