Trick or Treat!!

I am here with a tutorial today. If you haven't checked out Market Street Stamps beyond their stamp selection, you are really missing out on some great products that can be used for great projects.
What I made is a Halloween Banner that says Trick or Treat. I am really happy with the result that I got with this!!

Here is a list of products that I used:
Canvas Mini Triangles
Vintage Wallpaper background stamp
Sweet Spooks stamp set
Rusty Hinge Distress Ink
Momento Ink in Tuxedo Black
Lace binding tape
Coordinating ribbon scraps
Cut out letters for what you want your banner to say { I used my Cricut and the Storybook Cartridge}

First, I took my mini triangle shapes and stamped them with the Vintage Wallpaper background stamp using the Rusty Hinge Distress ink pad. The Distress Ink took quite a while to dry, so if you want to decorate immediately, I would use a faster drying ink, or use your heat tool to speed up the drying process.

I then used the Sweet Spooks stamp set to decorate the triangles a bit more. From this set I used the spider web, mini spider and Spooky word. I sporadically stamped the images and left some of the triangles with just the background stamp on them.
I then placed the ribbon scraps spaced out how I wanted them and sewed them on.
My next step was to use the lace binding tape to connect all of the triangles together. {Sorry you can't see the binding as well in this picture.} I left about 6 inches at the front and the back to be able to hang.}
Finally, I sewed the letters onto the triangles spelling out Trick or Treat.
And here is the final project.

I hope you all enjoyed what I made and don't forget that there are many products in the Market Street stamps store besides all of the super fun stamps!!!
