A Chance to Play with my Silhouette SD - Halloween Bunting

As it is half term and the kids are at home, I have taken the week off work and had a chance today to get out my Silhouette SD machine. Amongst other projects I decided a little Halloween decorating wouldn't go amiss and thought I would have a go at making some card bunting.

Please ignore my fingers shadows

The Silhouette website have very conveniently had some free Halloween shapes to download recently, so I used these for the detail.

In Silhouette

Using the Sihouette SD, I cut the Flag (triangle) shapes from an A4 sheet of grey card with the Pumpkin Face and the Spiders Web. I was quite chuffed with how they turned out, but my daughter said the pumpkin needed some orange. So I cut out the pumpkin itself with face.  and stuck them on the flags too!  I decided we ought to have a spider on the webs, so found a spider and traced, printed and cut out 3 and stuck them on too!

I couldn't find my string, so used a length of black knitting wool to hang the flags on, I tried to staple the flags on which wasn't very successful, so ended up with a bit of sticky tape on the back too!
