Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge #46 All Things Bright and Beautiful

It's time for challenge number 46 at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal
For this challenge we want to see your projects featuring the theme "All Things Bright and Beautiful"

For my project I made a magnetic list holder pocket, perfect for one the front of your fridge so you can jot do shopping lists and grab them on the way out!
I used two strips of magnetic sheet (thin enough to go through your printer) on the back of the pocket and your Scor-Tape is perfect for holding this on even with the weight of the pad inside the pocket.



Project Recipe:
Paper - Farmers Market by Recollections
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape








This looks great and is the perfect thing to hold my notepad in for me to scribble down the thing I know I'll forget at store without it!

I hope you like it too and will check out all the great samples from our team and will enter yourself at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal

Halloween Skeleton Frame Wreath

Not papercrafting today but crafting none the less!
I love to decorate for the all the seasons and Holidays but haven't made a Halloween wreath before, only a Fall One (which I will share later).
I decided to do a little looking on the net and found THIS FABULOUS FRAME WREATH and just knew I needed to make one for myself.
Now being a crafter I already had a lot of things around to use, it was the black frame that started me looking to create something with it, but I needed the skeleton.



Project Recipe:
Frame - Already had
Skeleton - $9.98 at Walmart
Silver Pumpkin - 98 cents at Walmart
Witches Hat, Halloween Sign, Creepy Cloth and Tinsel - $1 each at Dollar Tree
Spiders - Michaels (50 cents)
Lights - $4.99 at Walmart
Ribbon - Clearance at Walmart last year $1
Total - About $22!



I wired the skeleton to the frame with florist wire
I loved the Witches hat and hot glued it to the skeleton, makes him/her creepy cute I think!



The sign was just $1 and I simply took of the ribbon hanger and used two nails to attach it to the frame.



The bow was the hardest part for me, I'm not good at tying/creating bows and even after watching a ton of You Tube videos I still couldn't get it perfect but with wired ribbon you can hide a lot of imperfections and so I was happy in the end.



I loved this silver glittery pumpkin and at 98 cents it was a bargain! I just hot glued it to the skeletons hand



I added a string of battery operated Christmas lights to brighten it a little, I like that the bulbs have little clips that attach easily to the ribbon



It "glows" at night!

I had a lot of fun making this and just wanted to share with you all!
