Boo Halloween Card Made From Paper Chain Strips

This card measures 6ins x 6ins and is made using a hand cut black card blank.
I can’t believe how effective this card has turned out to be …… and so simple to make!
I used just 6 (out of 120) paper chain links from a pack I bought from HobbyCraft for just £1 a couple of weeks ago.
I made the background by sticking four chains onto a piece of paper, using double sided tape and then cutting it down to size, approximately 5.5 inches- ish square, and then mat and layered it, first on silver laser card and then plain purple, before sticking it on to the front of the card.
I then added two panels in black, again matted and layered on silver laser card, on one I put two very large googly eyes and on the other self adhesive letters to spell boo, with two smaller eyes in the middle of the o’s
And then inside the card I added two more strips.
This would make such a quick and easy Halloween party invitation, you could even add strips to the envelope.
With so many strips I can afford to experiment some more ……. so watch this space ….. I am thinking perhaps decorating a Trick or Treat bag?
