How to make a Halloween Card

Todays Halloween guest blog is courtesy of my great friend and all round lovely lady Carrie from Press from Design.

Today she's sharing with us a great Halloween craft activity for your children.' How to make your own Halloween Card'.

Give it a try and let us know how the children get on! We'd love to see your pictures too! If you send me the pictures of your completed cards the winner will receive a FREE Halloween party bag! Just email them across to me!

Over to you Carrie

Hi everyone!

I’m Carrie from Press for Design, and for Maxine’s spooktacular Hallowe’en blogs, I’ve designed a fun, customisable Hallowe’en card for you to make with your kids.

It’s simple to make – first of all download and print out the pdf I’ve put together for you (click on the link below) – if you have some lightweight card to print onto that would be fantastic, otherwise just plain copier paper will do.

Make your own Halloween card template

You’ll see that you get two sheets – one is the base of your card, and the other is a colouring in sheet.

Let your kids colour in the details on the colouring in sheet as they like.

When they’ve finished, cut out the pieces for them.  With trickier pieces, just cut around the outer edge of the design a little, as I did with the spider, and then colour in the white paper.

Fold the “Happy Hallowe’en” sheet in half to make the card base, then let your kids loose with the pieces and a glue stick!  They can put their card design together how they wish.

Here’s how I made mine – please send in your photos of how your kids made theirs – we’d love to see them!

Have a spooktacular Hallowe’en!

Thanks Carrie! If your children are excited about Halloween and you're considering hosting a Halloween party for them then don't forget about Life's A Celebration's Halloween Party Boxes.

See you soon my ghoulish friends!
