~~ A Halloween Trinket Tutorial AND GIVEAWAY!!!!! ~~

 Miz Paperglitter just landed in Superchickland!  WOOT!
I am honored, the lovely Genevieve, asked me to do a guest blog post for her wonderful readers today.  I am a paper crafting freak. I love all things paper and +LOVE+ printables!
I have been crafting like crazy for this past week using my printables ----I made tons of these kitty necklaces, packaged paper dolls and printed some sweet Halloween Money for the family kids!  I personalized the money and am giving them away as reward money for good behavior :)  Oh wait--what's that in the corner of that photo---could it be?
 Oh heck yeah!  Superchick Stash money!---holla!!!!!!!!! 
 
Today I am sharing what I made the other day using some of the new Halloween printables in my shop. 
First up, I made a Kitty Necklace using Shrink a Dink paper!
(Make sure you follow the manufacturer's instructions on printing and baking this Shrink a Dink paper, super chicas )

I took page 34 from the Halloween party kit (which has a large kitty and spider graphics on it) and printed it on Shrink a Dink paper.  After printing it and letting the ink dry for 5 minutes, I cut the kitty out and punched one hole on each ear using a standard hole puncher.
Then I baked the kitty head (using the instructions that came with the paper).  Look how small it got!
When the kitty head cooled off a bit, I took awesome Martha Stewart glitter and decorated my kitty charm and threaded it on a chain I bought at Jo-Anns. BUT WAIT--that's not the end--little girls like things in pretty packages so I HAD to package this!  So then……
I printed a green pattern from the same kit on cardstock paper and punched 2 little holes in it using a 1/8 hole punch...
 Cut slits on each side to meet the holes…
 Then placed my kitty chain on the back card.
 Look how thick that Kitty charm is--this Shrink A Dink stuff is amazing!
Then using a cello bag to insert the back card and charm in, I topped it off with a personalized bag topper card from the Halloween kit!  Sweet, huh?
