If forced to choose, I would have to say that my favorite holiday to decorate for is Halloween. Halloween kicks off the holiday decorating season, there are so many fun Halloween crafts to choose from, and the good news is you don’t have to choose just one! Ghosts, witches, and pumpkins can all mingle together and those same pumpkins can then transition to fall/Thanksgiving decor. I am not ashamed to admit that as soon as the calendar switched from August to September my daughter and I excitedly pulled out all of our homemade Halloween decorations and made plans for what projects we were going to create together this year to add to our DIY decor. After a careful inventory of everything, it has been decided we need more bats and have a few bat projects under way.
Included in this round-up of Halloween paper craft ideas are DIY decor ideas as well as tutorials that can be used if you are planning a Halloween party this year. From eye-opening DIY invitations to spooky party favors, these paper craft tutorials are sure to scare up your creativity!

I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
