I wanted this year’s card to be different than last year’s, because I’m giving the cards to a lot of the same kids. However, I had a lot of the same supplies to use up, so they ended up being similar!
- dark purple cardstock (12″ x 12″) – I used my paper cutter to trim these to 4″ x 5.5″ to fit in envelopes
- spooky ribbon to line the bottom of the card
- Recollections “Halloween Boo” ribbon (pack of 5) [Michaels]
- pumpkin letter sticker – but since I’ve run out of a bunch of letters, I didn’t always get to use the first letter of their name (as shown)
- silver metallic Sharpie for the words I wrote on (child’s name and mine)
- printed out spooky-lettered “Happy Halloween!” onto white card stock and rounded two opposite corners before gluing on
- font: Nemo Nightmares [here]
- Martha Stewart corner rounder [Michaels]
- sparkly/gemstone pumpkin sticker [sheet of 25 stickers: Hobby Lobby]
- envelopes – The Paper Studio value pack – 100 white [Hobby Lobby]
- Elmer’s Craft Bond Extra strength glue stick – to affix white “Happy Halloween!” paper
- Elmer’s Craft Bond quick dry dual-tip glue pen (the small side) -to affix ribbon
For the kids whose cards I will mail (not my students), I included a couple of sheets of stickers and a jack-o-lantern eraser. (stickers and erasers from Target – that section in the front where everything is only a few dollars)
I also put a sticker on the back of the envelope.
For the kids whose cards I will hand-deliver (my students), I added stickers to the actual cards and that was that.
If my post inspires you, and you blog about it, I ask that you credit me! Also, I’d love to see it!
