Halloween History Bulletin Board
- Cover the entire bulletin board with background (butcher paper of your choice.) Cut the title, "Halloween History" using the Ellison Dye-cut Machine. The pumpkins, ghost, and bats were cut using the Ellison Machine as well.
- Caramel Apples: Cut four or more (4+) apples using red, green, and brown with the Ellison Dye-cut Machine. Glue (hot glue or rubber cement) a Popsicle stick on the rear and let dry. With the brown apple, make a caramel drip design; use the top half so that it fit the apples. If you're feeling extra creative you can add nuts.
- Trick-or-Treat Bag: Cut the bottom half of a brown paper bag; (open the bag and staple the top of the bag to give it a 3 dimensional (3-D) effect. For the candy, cut out multicolor circles; wrap them in plastic wrap and tie the ends.
- Jack-O-Lanterns: Dye-cut the pumpkins using the Ellison machine and design a jack-o-lantern face. Using an craft knife,cut out the face. (If your background paper is black, no need to color in the faces.)
