And then it hit me. I have these decorative blocks that I created a few years ago. They are just 2 x 4's cut into varying sizes that I covered in pages of an old book using Mod Podge. I added a screw at the top of each for hanging, and then I create seasonal decorative tags that hang from them. I wanted to create a new set for Halloween.
There are six blocks, so I typically will pick a six letter word and include some embellishments. But sometimes I will include an image and use a shorter word. I decided to go with "EEK" which would allow me to use some fun Halloween characters. Here is what I came up with . . .
So the wobbles appear on two of the tags . . . the vampire and the owl . . .
Check out that wobble action (or rather, check out that blur!).
Love the added effect of the wobble action on these, as it adds dimension. Just one problem . . . my cat has discovered the darn wobble and one block has hit the staircase below!
Hmmm . . . the blocks are indestructable, and paper and creating can be done on a yearly basis. It's a win-win situation.
Here are the other blocks up close and personal . . .
Two little tweeks that I did on these . . . I included the stamped "eek" on each one! On the far left and far right tags (the vampire and the pumpkin) I included a curl of ribbon that made me think of quotes.
LOVE these blocks. LOVE the wobbles . . . and I plan to use them on my next set, which will be Thanksgiving. I definitely need to find a short word so I can wobble a turkey!
Any suggestions for a Thanksgiving word? Send them along.
Can you Wobble on a tag? Yes, you can. Imagine your holiday gift tags with wobbles. Amazingly cute opportunity awaits . . . now, go create!
