Handmade Halloween invitations

When my printer stopped working earlier this month I was a little freaked out.  I'd had my heart set on printing out a bunch of my free printable ghost invitations I designed.  I thought and thought of what I could do instead but it was like my imagination was broken. All I could think of was ...beef...stew. (5 points to whoever knows that reference.)  Anyway, I wracked my brain and I just couldn't let go of the adorable idea of ghosts holding a flag banner.  So I went to my craft room got out my stamps, paint and paper and went to work.  What do you think?

I used my sewing machine to put it all together.
I am super happy with how they turned out. :)

I like to link up with these link parties.

Your ghost banners are just adorable and I love that you sewed it all together....sew cute!

I love this idea! Sewing all those together must have been hard though! Also, I love your boots- where did you get them?

Lorajean said...

Thanks Emily, the boots were $17 from Ross! The sewing was the easy part. The stamping was the messy, no kids allowed, hard part.
