Hapy Halloween Cards and Making Memories

My tutorial today is how to make this banner without a stamp. Not a problem. Just take some 1" squares of different colors of your paper scraps. (They really can be any sizes depending on what you are placing them on or what you are making with them). The biggest thing is to find the center at the bottom of each of the squares. Cut a diagonal line from the top left corner to the center mark and then do the right.
I used scraps of Making Memories Toil and Trouble paper. (You know that is all I ever get is the scraps that my wife leaves behind for me to use) and made each of my cards. She suggested that I put my banner pieces up on pop dots to give it more dimension instead of just gluing it flat. I must say she was right :) I also did a corner round on this card and on the following card.
I found the corner rounder laying on her scrap table and thought hmm.... wonder what this does. My little skeleton I just cut from the bottom of a piece of the Toil and Trouble paper and glued it to my card. I stamped my sentiment and placed it on some of those pop dots. My wife added the stitching around the outside edges of the 4 squares. We agreed it just needed just a little more.
