Pay it Forward: the follow up

Way back in February I got on the "Pay it Forward" (blog style) bandwagon. Original post here.

I love Halloween so when I came across this post, I knew I wanted to make my own. I had no idea how hard it would be to find cute Halloween paper. Or letters that stand up. Once I found the materials it was easy as pie. And fun to do. Here's what I finally came up with:


A plate of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies topped it off. And done.

But seriously, check out this site. So cute! (Thanks for sending me the link, Beckii!)

Happy Fall!

So where did you get your cute halloween paper? I'm in charge of Super Saturday...this week...and in desperate need of some and have found NOTHING as cute as yours. Please tell!

Hey Jenny,
I found the paper and letters at AC Moore.
The only thing I would add to the instructions from the other site was I used a sanding block (or sandpaper) on the edges- to make the paper flush with the wood. Made it seem more finished.
Good luck!
(I'm doing JOY for Christmas- you might find a better selection of Christmas paper...)
