Happy Insta Girls: Halloween Hop

Hey there, how about some Halloween Inspiration today? You probably remember the Happy Insta Friends blog hops I have participated in the past. It’s one I particularly love because you get to actually send your cards and this time also a little Halloween treat to one of the participants opposed to „just“ make something fitting the theme. Sadly though, this is the last installment :( Blogs nowadays don’t seem to have much audience compared to Instagram and other social media outlets and while we blog hoppers know each other from Insta, we still haven’t found a better way to make this blog hop happen than on our actual blogs (ideas welcome!). 

Anyway, here is the fabulous card and gift I received from Biggi.

The card is 3D with multiple layers and the treat she sent me is an amazing haunted house filled with candy.

You can even open the door and detach the roof - umh, hello!! How amazing is this? Thanks so much, Biggi 😘

The card I sent to our lovely blog hop coordinator Birka features a more scared than scary pumpkin and my treat to her was a mummy that hides a chocolate bar inside. For the card, I used the fun glitter splatter technique invented years ago by Rahel Menig.

The treat package took me a while to figure out. Finally, I decided on a simple pizza box style wrapped with tissue paper and seam-binding. I punched the eyes from white paper and added black round puffy stickers. The bulb style safety pin makes a great nose and holds it all together. I really hope Birka liked her package.

Now, I send you on your way to Birka to get some more Halloween inspiration. I myself will hop a little later since I left on jet plane a few days ago… Happy fright night, everyone! 👻
