Happy Halloween Minibook & a Prize Winner!

Happy Halloween LBH Friends!!
We have another fun Halloween project to share with you today! This project is a cute little Halloween mini-book designed by Rhonda Merry
For this little mini, I gathered some pumpkin orange and deep black cardstock and some sparkly green tulle to go along with the Carta Bella Papers.  But first to create the book I cut five 4x8 pieces of the black cards stock. Then fold them in half for your pages.  To bind I used some elastic hair ties. Like these.
Place two of the folded sheets left side of one to right side of the next and place an elastic securing the two page at the folded edges. Continue for all five folded pieces to form book.
Cut out orange and patterned squares to a 3-1/2” X 3-1/2” size, then distress and ink all edges, using Quick Quotes Orange Slice chalk ink. I used the Carta Bella cut-a-parts,some other coordinating papers and embellishments from Carta Bella- Trick or Treat and Crate Paper- After Dark collections. You can find all of these products at  The Little Blue House!
Here are the pages I created.
To create the ghost, punch a 1” circle and wrap a 4”x4” piece of cheese cloth around the circle and secure with an elastic band

Fussy cut Jack-o-lanterns, stamp sentiment from the Reverse Confetti stamp set-Shine Bright onto yellow cardstock. Created a pocket with the Checker paper and added a tag with some trim on the top embellished with a wood veneer bat from Crate Paper.
Added some Gold Halloween Thickers from American Crafts.

Punch and glitter a 2” yellow circle. Add two glitter pumpkins and add some Stickles Faces. A little Glossy Accents Dimensional Adhesive was added to the bat.
Title pieces were cut from the Journal Cards and the masks were added to some toothpicks.  Leaves were cut using the Reverse Confetti Leafy Confetti Cuts.
