Cricut Halloween Luminary

This is the Halloween project I taught at this months Pixie Stick Club. Pixie Stick Club is the kid's class at our local scrapbook store (Scrapper's Edge).

Cricut machine
George, Paper Doll Dress Up cartridges
Bazzill heavy black cardstock
Mrs. Grossman's lavender vellum
Making Memories glitter Halloween stickers
Making Memories foam stamps
white and glow in the dark acrylic paint
cob webs
plastic spider rings
electric votive candle (don't use a real candle)

The luminary base was cut from heavy cardstock using my Cricut machine and the Design Studio Software. The window section is backed by a 4.5 x 4.5 square of vellum. Use a 2-way glue pen on the back of the castle and bat to adhere them to the vellum, and plain scotch tape to attach the outer edge of the vellum to the inside of the luminary. Embellish with paint and stickers. When the paint is dry roll the luminary into a cylinder to shape it, I used a rolling pin. Tape the edges together on the inside of the back, top with cob webs and plastic spiders. I cut a slit in the rings and looped them through the pickets on top. Put an electric votive candle or glow stick inside and oooooh! Creepy Halloween fun!
