These Fiesta Skellie paper dolls will give you a whimsical way to add a bit of Dia de lose Muertos flair to your paper craft projects.
Since I have so many Day of the Dead designs, I thought I’d start a mini countdown to November 2nd, the final day of the Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Mexico. To kick things off, one of my favorite matchbox shrine designs, Laughing Catrinas. These cackling skellies come with complete instructions for three mounting variations, from easy to complex, and all the pieces and parts you’ll need to make three of them.
You know I have a soft spot in my heart for all things Edgar Allan Poe. That was my inspiration when I designed The Raven fan, complete with images of Poe, cemetery angels, tombstones, and raven. Just cut and assemble!
One of my favorite Halloween sheets is Charmed, which combines candy corn, witchy images, and spooky words into nice, self-contained shapes. With plenty of shapes in two different sizes, this sheet is great for cardmaking.
In 2010, writer Neil Gaiman came up with a brilliant idea: during the week of Halloween, we should give each other scary books. That’s how All Hallow’s Read came into being. What could be better than a celebration that involves giving books?
I designed the Poe-themed Cold & Alone Bookmark Set with scary books in mind. Just print, fold, add a swipe of glue and some ribbon, and you’ll have a nice matching set to adorn your books.
