This week Papertrey's Make It Monday challenge was to use a fabric stabilizer to help you make fabric die cuts. Well, who would want to do that? Being the planner that I am, I wanted to do something for the coming holiday, but what? If only I had cheesecloth. Someone gave me a ghost die cut a couple years ago for Christmas and I can't say it had ever been used. Sometime I forget some of the stuff I have, especially when I receive it off season and then don't use it right away. Anyway, I happen to remember that I do have cheesecloth sitting in a jar, left over from a project one of my littles did a couple years ago. Now, where was the stabilizer? Surely I have some, but where did I put THAT? I head to the closet where most of the sewing stuff is and it turns out that at some point I bought heat-n-bond. Why? I don't know. I didn't find the stuff I thought I was going to, but I can use this. Finally, I can try and get this project started...
So I get these oh so adorable cheesecloth ghosts die cut. Now what? Well, Halloween treats are always a hit around here. I already have so many things planned what else can I do? Aha! I have glassine bags I bought years ago and then didn't know what to do with. So let's make this work. And it did!
Here is the final product.
So much fun! Now I just have to make a few more so everyone around here gets one. And with all that stuff I forgot I had - heat-n-bond, cheesecloth, dies - I am putting this up in the Forgotten Things Challenge at Our Creative Corner. I'm also putting in over at the Anything but a Card Challenge over at Gingerloft Challenges.
Thanks for looking!
