I'm really pleased with how these turned out!!!...I wanted something that looked really old and damaged. I love that each one is so different from the next.....I blurred out my address on the photo's but you get the idea....All it took was a printer, paper, coffee, a lighter and an oven...

Great idea! We don't really celebrate Halloween, but I could use it to make a treasure map from pirates for a party.  Cool

Thanks for sharing!

I just did a simple search for halloween clipart (in black and white) and looked for vintage type items...I had a lot of fun making these, but did end up with a headache from inhaling too much smoke  Tongue ...I figured out halfway through that if I pre-trimmed the paper into the shape I wanted I didn't need to let it burn as much which equals less smoke...DUH!

Thanks for all the support!!!...I rarely post here because I just don't feel like my skills come close to the talent and creativity here at Craftster (I'm my own worst critic) but I was pleasantly suprised that these turned out so well....we are trying to DIY all our halloween decorations for this party due to the economy and our very small party fund...I've gotten some great decorating ideas from Craftster and have a very talented crew (family) to help out.  Grin
