I bought a pack of googley eyes... no craft area is complete without them. So, I was thinking about nice invitations or greeting cards I could make for Halloween. I also had some black computer paper and neon orange cardstock. From them, I created this card.



And since one isn't enough, I made several more, this one being different from the rest. (sorry about the black spot. I think my scanner is plotting against me.)


What I did was this (using the first card as my example):
1. I took one sheet of orange cardstock and two sheets of black computer paper.
2. I put the orange card stock in between the two black sheets and folded the papers together. I glued the black paper that was the inside of the card to the orange paper. This made the orange paper glued on top of the black with another black sheet leftover.
3. Using my 1/2" hole punch that is usually for marble magnets, I punched random holes in pairs along the loose black sheet. I punched one hole and then another slightly overlapping the first.
4. Then, I glued the black sheet with the holes on top of the orange sheet, so the holes appeared orange.
5. In the holes, I glued googley eyes.
And volia... a googley eye Halloween card.

Well...this is an older thread, but I found the cards to be adorable, so I thought I would post anyway.  Smiley
