easy halloween tags

Punches are some of my favorite crafting tools to use because they're non-consumable and they extend the value and versatility of your paper stash.  I'm always thrilled when I find unique and fun ways to combine my punches to create cool designs.  To create the tags below using the We R Bewitched collection, I was able to do just that.


Watch this YouTube video to see which We R tools I combined, and how easy it was to create these tags by combining those tools.



Cool, huh?  Here are a few close up shots of the tags I made using the 3x4 Card Punch and various Corner Chompers.  I incorporated the Lifestyle Crafts 2 inch spider die on a couple of the tags.  I'm so thrilled about the partnership between We R and Lifestyle Crafts--perfect fit!



On one of the tags I layered two die cut spiders with foam squares in between for added dimension, then I carefully bent the legs of the top spider layer upward.  On another tag I sanded some coordinating white core We R textured cardstock before cutting out the spider.


To finish off the tags I added some white Wide Shimmer Eyelets and Baker's Twine in coordinating colors.  Love that We R products always coordinate.  Happy spooky crafting!
