Hello to all!!!!

Halloween/Fall season is in full swing... ghosts, bats, pumpkins, and spooky scenes are everywhere on the craft table.
So  decided to follow the show and sat down to make a Halloween banner for my kid's room.
Xyron makes it super easy to create many decor projects.

Here is the banner with all the spookiness.
I have used many Xyron products--details and pictures are below. Along with this, I have used Elizabeth Craft designs dies to make the details on the banner.

To make this banner, die cut all the designs in black card stock. I have cut 4 big fish tail die cut, two medium and three small and the mat layers for them.

Pass the orange banner mat die cuts through the 5" Creative station lite. This will make it easy to mat the layers on the banner.

Swipe the white mat layers for medium die cuts on wet distress ink-spice marmalade.

Apply on the black base with tape runner. Use the 1.5" sticker machine to add the adhesive to the smaller die cuts.

 Decorate the banner as shown and attach them together using a burlap string.
