Use it or lose it...Halloween Ghosties

A few weeks ago I challenged myself to use a pack of Maya Road chipboard banners I bought about 2 years ago.  I'm trying to work through some of the chipboard I've been hoarding. I don't use banners much but I thought that with a little altering, those banners could become something I could use.

Turns out, I was right. See...

I altered the whole pack and gave each banner piece a coat of white paint and then a coat of Ranger Pearl paint. I stuck on some googly eyes when the paint was wet. It worked like a glue and those eyes have all stayed put. I'm going to use some of them as a little Halloween banner in the house and others as scrapbooking embellishments for this year's Halloween page.

I love how they turned out and I'm pretty darn pleased that I managed to use up the whole pack! 

So, now it's your turn. Dig out something you've been meaning to use from your stash and see what you can do with it. And if you do, leave a link in the comments. I'd love to see what you're making.

Thanks for stopping by!
