Welcome to the Helmar Halloween Howler Hop!

Welcome to the  Helmar Halloween Howler Hop!

You have made it to  Lucky # 8 blog and you are almost half way thru the Blog hop.  Helmar has put together some wonderful prizes so be sure and visit all of the blogs to increase you chances of winning some of the gifts up for grabs.

You can see all of the great prizes on the Helmar USA blog as well as read about all of the wonderful product that Helmar has to work with.

I have created a Halloween wall decoration  using a photo of my son than when he was a small boy.

 I had two sheets of the same Halloween paper. I  cut and tore around the major element on the sheet of paper.

When attaching them to the page I created dimension by raising element of the design with Helmar Zap Dots and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots

I sprayed the back of the cut outs with Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive
 to smoothly adhere all of the edges of the cut outs to the page.

This is the feature product from Helmar it will provide a seamless adhesion with vellum. Spray the back of your surface and allow it to set for a few minute until tacky . The you can glue the surface down with ease. The miracle product is Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive.

 The majority of the work on the project was assembled with Helmar 450 Quick Dry and Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner.

When putting together ideas for the gift bags I  looked for vintage Halloween images to use as the decoration for the tags. I down loaded these Halloween images for free from this site Vintage Halloween Images, they also have various other holiday themes.

The bags are lunch bags spritzed with acrylic, and Shimmerz paints then tied with jute strings. I printed the tags and hi lighted them with Stickles paints. I trimmed the tags  and them sprayed the backs of each printed card with Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive before attaching it to the vellum tag. You can then punch a hole in the corner and tie the tag on your gift bag.

I have displayed a selection of  tag ideas that you can use for party  invitations, Halloween cards or goodies bags.

These are a sample of the completed bags that I put together for Halloween treats.

You are now ready to proceed to your next Halloween stop. Just follow the link below if you started at the Helmar USA. Blog. If you did not start at Helmar follow the link back and visit all of the teams blogs to see their wonderful project.
