Halloween Hello Kitty

I love Wednesdays! The middle of the week is always welcomed because I know there's only two more days til the weekend!
After I got this cute rak from Joy with the Halloween Hello Kitty on it, I knew I wanted to make a Halloween Hello Kitty using my Sizzix diecut.I used a thin chipboard to cut out the head only from this die (this die comes with the whole body and some overalls that she is wearing). It was easy to cut off the just the head portion. I know that doesn't sound right, but you know what I mean :) I then cut out a witches hat (by hand, no diecut) to go on her head. Found this star punch which was just the right size!

For those of you who don't have these cute Hello Kitty dies, you might want to know that although these dies are super duper cute, they are a big pain in the behind to cut out the whiskers in black and the nose (I used So Saffron CS) and then glue them in place. I guess I did it because I love the kitty...
I attached it to one of those cute backpacks. This one was easier as I did not double the top note (flap of the BP and the envelope pocket). I added a rhinestone brad to the front of the pocket and of course velcro dots.

Here's a side view of the finished project. This cute Halloween goodie was made for Sunny. Daughter of my friend Barbie.


Cardstock: Pumpkin pie, basic black, so saffron
DSP is from a Halloween paper pack which is now retired (SU)
Hello Kitty Sizzix Die
Accessories: rhinestone brad, striped grosgrain ribbon
Hope you are excited as I am that it is the middle of the week! Come back tomorrow to meet some new friends.
