Halloween Layered Ghosts

Create These Easy to Make Layered Ghosts.

Halloween is almost here and it wouldn’t be the same without some ghosts. I have created two layered ghosts for you to create.

The first ghost is the Boo Ghost. She is a cute ghost that has the word “Boo” cut out of the top layer. She measures approximately 10 inches.

The second ghost is the Web Ghost. She has a spider web cut out of two of the layers. She measures approximately 9 inches.

Check to make sure the size is correct. Now you are ready to click on "Make It" and cut out the pattern. Save the center's out of the letters "BOO".

The next screen that will appear is the "Prepare" screen, if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button

The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the Cerulean Blue Cardstock I used is medium weight, I would type in the browse all materials "Medium Weight".

Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut. 

Next upload the black eyes. Check to make sure the size is correct.
