Ghouls Night Out Party
** FTC NOTICE: We are blessed to work in an industry that we love. As project designers and instructors we are often given products to work with. Some of the products we work with have been given to us by companies we design for or sold to us at a discounted rate. While this in no way controls our content (we only use and blog what we love) the government says we have to tell you that we might have gotten some things for free.**
As promised we have taken photographs of our super fun projects using the amazing Buckle Boutique Bling sheets and Glitz Glitter Vinyl Sheets! Please note that this post does contain lots of photos! But hey it is everything you need to create your very own Ghouls night out party!!!
First off if you have yet to check out Episode 2 of Midge and Madge Mingle be sure to check it out below
As you can see we took everyday party supplies and added a touch of bling! Talk about turning Drab to Fab! We did just that by using The Buckle Boutique Bling! Be sure to use Coupon Code MOM10 for a 10% discount also be sure to check them out on FB tell them Midge and Madge sent you!!
We added some fun bling to the invite. A strip across the top and the eyes of the cute skulls. But the bling didn't stop there. We added some fun purple bling to the envelope too! EEK!!! Aren't they super cute??
What is a party without a banner?? These were coasters that we took and added some awesome purple glitzy glitter vinyl to, and added some to the top hat. We even added some to the big skull in the back! Just look how adding a touch of glitter made this banner pop and the big skull come to life!
What?!! A coffin to hold the silverware?? So cute, right? Take a plain black coffin box and add some delicious bling and look what you get! A spooky fun project taken from drab to fab!!!
We can't have a Cocktail party with out a Cocktail Cup! We took the bling and wrapped the cup and placed bling in the eyes of the cute skulls all of the way around! Bring on the Witches Brew!!
Treats.... Treats.... Treats! Bring on the cupcakes! Check out this cute skull topper and the fun cupcake picks! Notice the green eyes?? So fun! adding the green bling really brought this cupcake stand shine!
When the guests leave we even have cute little party bags! We bought these pre-made however you could get plain muslin bags and stamp on them and add your bling!
Using an craft knife and craft mat we cut out the glitter sheet and added the black bling behind it to make it pop!! This cute Marquee skull by Heidi Swapp is a super addition to our fun Ghouls Night Party!
And last but not least, our cute treat bucket!! Using our Cricut we cut the letters to spell "Treats" remember you can use cutting machines, scissors and trimmers to create unique fun projects with The Buckle Boutique bling and glitter sheets!!!
