Could you share where you found the outline online please? Smiley

I just kind of invented my outline.. I Googled "Bat Template" and got irritated with the cartoon-y-ness of the bats I found there, so I just drew one on a piece of paper.  Then I used the handy-dandy photocopier at work to enlarge and reduce it until I had 4 different sizes.

Aww you guys are awesome!!  Thanks for all the swell compliments!!
The Spanish teacher gives you an A++ on your papel picado!

I've never been able to fit those into my classroom activities due to timing but my kids love my presentation on Dia de los Muertos. Smiley

LOL I'm pretty sure I took Spanish in high school just so I could learn more about Dia de los Muertos.. its my favorite!!

Thanks guys!  I'm also making some for home.. I want to hang them from the ceiling so they look like they're flying.  I tried poking a hole in their tummies and threading a ribbon through them (so I would have like 3 on a strand) but they were being uncooperative and looked like they were all taking nosedives... so instead I am poking a hole in the tip of each wing and putting ribbon through the holes and tieing it at each wing, so they can all fly properly  Grin

These bats were very simple to make.  I found an outline of a bat online, traced different sizes of said bat onto posterboard, and cut them out.  To affix them to the wall I just used masking tape.  I folded them to make their wings flap a little Smiley

Going across the door to my room at the shop:

They're in my hair!  They're in my hair!  Get them out!!!

I've already started decorating for Halloween!  (Hope I'm not the only one!!)  I work in a tattoo shop (I'm a body piercer) so I started decorating the shop, since I assume that's more acceptable than decorating my house in September!  I'll probably start on my house soon, since I'm inspired now!!

I know papel picado is made with tissue paper, but tissue paper and I don't get along, so I used some random scrapbooking papers.  I got the patterns from The Toymaker (love this website!) http://www.thetoymaker.com/Holidays/Halloween/1HALLOWEEN.html

Awesome idea!!  I really like your use of color also.  And "succulent"is one of my favorite words...  Cheesy

Yes for the corner, my vote is on a picture of you, framed with a different paper to make it stand out more (and maybe at an angle, since everything else seems to be straight across..) with some fancy festive rub-ons or some sort of a flourish to tie the whole thing together.

You were right about the gem stones.. they look like they were a b!tch to put on, but they really make the page stand out!  Awesome job!!

This is my first post, so please, be gentle! Grin

I made this super cute scrapbook box for my husband for our 1 year anniversary.  I made it out of a box from a jewelry kit and scrapbooking supplies.  This is the front:

This is the back, with a snippet from our wedding invitation:

This is the box with all the cards laid out:

The first card, front side is my family:
