1. Die cut or free-hand cut a ghost shape from patterned paper. Edge with Black Mixed Media Inx and stitch to a piece of black cardstock. Trim around the ghost shape, leaving approximately a 1/8" border. Edge black cardstock with Jasmine Mixed Media Inx.

2. To create the banner, first emboss a scrap of black cardstock with Clearsnap's Design Adhesives and Top Boss White Embossing Powder. The Design Adhesives work just like rub-ons. Simply cut out your desired design, rub it on like you would a typical rub-on, peel up the clear liner, and emboss, add glitter, foil, flock, whatever you wish.

3. Cut 3 triangles from embossed cardstock for the banner. My triangles are about 1.5" wide by 1.75" long. Swag string across the ghost shape, and attach the banners using Glue Arts U Cut It Foam adhesive.

4. Embellish banner with trims, chipboard alpha stickers, designer pins and picks. Create bubble caps using the Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Studio Tool and Round 14 caps to place between each banner flag. Create a heart button using the Epiphany Crafts Heart 20 Studio Tool and a Heart 20 Cap to embellish the top of the bow.

5. For the eyes, emboss a scrap of white cardstock with Top Boss Embossing Ink and Top Boss White Embossing Powder. Punch two 1" circles from embossed paper and cut into lima bean shapes. Create two black rounds using the Round 14 Studio Tool and Round 14 Caps for the pupils.

6. For the mouth, punch a 1" circle from black cardstock and cut into a figure 8 shape. Edge with Jasmine Mixed Media Inx and adhere to the ghost using Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares.

7. Emboss a chipboard flag with Top Boss White Embossing Powder and stamp a sentiment with small alpha stamps. Adhere to the designer pins using Glue Arts U Cut It Foam adhesive.

8. Cut two ghosts from patterned paper. Apply Fairy Dust Glitter to the edges of the ghosts using Clearsnap's Glue Gloss. Adhere ghosts to the Designer Picks.

9. Hang ghost from a wire hanger and enjoy!
