Halloween Banner 2022

Hello friends and welcome! Today is the day. I'm finally sharing the Halloween Banner I promised last week. I have a good reason for keeping you in suspense though because this project is part of the Scrapbook.com Bat Parade! At the end of the post, I have all the details about the Bat Parade.

One thing I want to share before I get into the making details, is that this is another one of those projects I've been wanting to do for years (greatly inspired by the talented Zoe Hillman) and this year I'm proud to say I finally got my Halloween Banner made.


HALLOWEEN BANNER 2022

I'm going to walk you through the basics of how I created one of the banner pieces. I then repeated this formula for the remaining banners, just mixing it up with the embellishments and die cuts I added to made each piece unique.

To get started, I began by die cutting a piece of Tim Holtz Black Kraftstock using the second from the largest Scrapbook.com Nested Flag Banner Dies. 

Using the next size down, I die cut a piece of Tim Holtz Halloween Backdrop Patterned papers, inked the edges with Walnut Distress Ink and adhered it to center of the Black Banner.

I then took the next size down and die cut a piece of Distress Mixed Media Heavystock. Using an assortment of Tim Holtz Halloween stamps and Archival Ink in Black Soot, Peeled Paint, Villainous Potion and Spiced Marmalade I created my own "patterned paper".  You could easily use Distress Ink or Distress Oxide Ink if you prefer. I also made each panel different by using different stamps on each one, but if you want to hurry along the process, you could make each one the same. Once the stamping was completed, I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.


Next, I die cut a piece of Distress White Heavystock using the Tim Holtz Spider Web Die, inked it very very lightly with Antique Linen and Pumice Stone Distress Ink and adhered it to the stamped panel with Distress Collage Medium.

At this point, I adhered this panel to a piece of Black Kraftstock and trimmed to 3.5 inches wide and then used my scissors to cut the notch and create a thin mat layer for the stamped piece. 


With the background completed, it's time to move onto the the embellishing. I selected a Tim Holtz Halloween Paper Doll for each banner and adhered it using double sided foam adhesive to give it a little dimension. I then added bits of Tim Holtz Halloween Ephemera and Snippets. I also die cut the letters 31 from black glitter cardstock using a mix of number dies from Scrapbook.com. To add a touch of spooky, I die cut Black Kraftstock using the Scrapbook.com Delicate Leaves die and tucked them in here and there. Who knew these gorgeous leaves could be spooky?! These dies are in the coming soon section, so make sure to hit the "notify me" button so you are in the know for when they are in stock and available!


The final touch was the addition of the bats! I die cut them from black glitter paper using the Scrapbook.com Halloween Bats Dies and adhered them with double sided foam adhesive to give them some dimension.

Next, I punched a hole in the top right and left hand corners of each banner piece using the We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile to punch the hole and adhere the eyelets. I then cut a length of Hug Snug Seam Binding, inked it with Black Soot Distress Spray Stain, dried it and thread it through the eyelets so I could hang my banner.


Here is a look at each of the individual banner panels as well as a close up detail image of each one. Enjoy the scroll!
