Halloween tag treats using the new envelope punch board … with a little bit of pumpkin punch art…

I was asked by Michelle Last to design and demonstrate a project for a group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators at a local craft day in Frodsham last weekend.  More on the project I designed coming up in a later post, so please do pop back again to see that. 

When we get together at craft events we love to share swaps – it’s a way of getting to know each other, chat and to share ideas.  For my swaps, I used the new envelope punch board from Stampin’ Up to make some Halloween tag treats…
