Halloween, I love it. Not quite as much as Christmas but nearly. Just happens to be my brothers birth date too which explains a lot (I´ll be banished for a bit for writing that). So I am having a little dinner party and I have had such a brilliant time doing the invites that I want to share them with the internet. This post has absolutely no connection with weddings but I will be posting weddings that have lots to do with Halloween over the next couple of weeks.
Isn´t this great. This was one of the links I jumped to from one of the free printables last week. Go to cocoandbella for a great selection of .........
The Wonderfully Easy PicMonkey, My Friend.
Click on the monkey to see how simple it is to change images and have lots of fun. If you click on the little lipstick icon and go straight to the bottom of the list you will land on the CLONE pic. This is great for taking things out of photographs. I have this lovely picture of a bride walking with her father down the garden aisle. The brides veil looked amazing but sadly a lady was standing in the background directly in the middle of the veil waving in the wind. The clone button fixed that.
My Halloween Invites.
Printing with my fingers crossed
The next move was an idea to print the invites onto fabric. I wrapped fabric around an A4 piece of paper leaving the top and bottom only paper (this seemed to help my printer feed the fabric along). As I had not used my printer with fabric before I pressed print with my fingers crossed (it´s a shared printer). FAB..it worked.
I rolled each invite and placed them into individual vile glass tubes (like the picture above). My son being equally into all things dark and gross went on a mission in the garden and came back with the right amount of snail shells to pop into the bottom of each vile. I loved doing these, so my thing. Now I have to concentrate on the dark dinner menu.
