designer halloween papers

I tried my hand at making 'designer paper' last Christmas (see post here) and this year I made some Halloween papers.  The PTI Halloween stamps were released right when we returned from a backpacking trip, so I was inspired by my camping hat:
I sliced and pieced together cardstock stripes which were Scotch taped in the back (perhaps there's a better way to do this - it worked for me).  I forgot to take pictures before I cut a corner out of it :)  After I cut, I re-taped the 'raw' edge to keep the sheet together.  It looks so cool in person!
Next I stamped a patterned paper It's hard to see in the photo, but there are plum pudding and scarlet jewel images here.  Every good web needs a spider, so I stamped them next to star clusters.
I also punched and stamped a few double-sided Halloween tags (btw - I'm SO excited for new 1.75" circle mat dies from PTI!!!).  At one time, there was one tag for every color, so I seem to have misplaced a few (orange and scarlet).  I've got something fun up my sleeve for these later.
The blank, pre-folded, coordinating cards are ready for crafting, so we'll just have to see what becomes of it all!
