Hi all. I’m in the middle of making a Halloween Mobile. Don’t have it finished yet but thought I would share my templates so you could play with them too! Click the link below for my FREE printables. When the file opens, hover your cursor over the image until the Adobe Reader menu appears, and simply choose to print from there.
For my mobile I wanted my figures to be pretty on both sides. When you’re using card stock, construction or regular colored papers, that won’t be a problem. But some of the paper I used is only one-sided so I’ll show you how I prepared those before cutting out the images.
Above is a sheet of scrapbook paper, plain on the back side. Now, fold this sheet in half, with your pretty side showing. Your fold can be either horizontally or diagonally, wherever you get the most room for your template(s).
Now open your paper to the white side, and apply glue to only one side of the fold. I use a glue wheel or double-sided tape here. Liquid glue could be used, but would have to be smoothed and spread very thin, and would be a lot messier.
After glued area is ready, fold dry side over onto the glue, and smooth. I smooth it by hand first, and then use my brayer to roll it even flatter.
Now position your templates on the paper.
Next just trace the templates and cut out your object.
Remember, my pieces here are for a mobile, so both sides will be seen. Obviously, you can avoid all the glueing and cutting if you just want a piece to put on top of something else, like a greeting card or poster.
Tomorrow, my mobile will be completed and up for photos, so I’ll post it then.
Have fun with these and as always, don’t stress about it, just start!
Later – Cheryl
