Skeleton Hallowe'en Card

Red_ConfettiOctober 22, 2005

Now this card isn't a quality-crafted card, but it is for my Mom who has Alzheimer's Disease. She isn't critical of the things I make for her!

The skeleton is from the Ben & Jerry's site in the link below. I put it together with dental floss, loosely, so the bones could rattle.

I got carried away with making the images smaller for this site, so I bet you can't read the front verse - it says "Shake, Rattle and Roll this Hallowe'en" - didn't want anything scary for Mom.

I didn't have any of that fake spiderweb stuff, so I used some polyester quilt batting, stretched out for the webs.

I used a pair of deckle-edge scissors to cut out the pieces.

(Unfortunately I used a glue that made 'bubbles.' Even though I pressed the card overnight between paper towels and a stack of heavy books, the bubbles are still there. Mom won't care!)

I used one of those 'eyelet' things in the top of the skull, then ran a fairly long loop of clear fishline through it, and then through a couple of slots at the top of the card. This is so the skeleton can be hung in my Mom's room
