Well, this is my Monday evening post of for my Terrorific Tuesday. Yikes! I always cut it close.
This week, I wanted to create a craft that also helps you remember Halloween’s of the past. Do you have a favorite photo of you, your child, or your friends that you want to remember? Well, it’s super easy to visit memory lane and have a little fun waxing nostalgia with these cupcake picks! They’re super easy to make and something you can whip up in an hour…so let’s get started…
Halloween Cupcake Pics/Picks
– Computer with Adobe Photoshop (or comparable photo imaging software)
– Various digital or scanned in photos
– Scrapbook papers in various colors
– Glue stick
– scissors or circle cutter
1. Make a new 8.5″ x 11″ document, now open up your photos. Using circle selection tool, select desired area, and copy and paste into your 8.5″ x 11″ document.
2. Size your circular photos to be approximately 1.5″ in diameter. Once you have them laid up on your page, print out.
3. Using circle cutter or scissors, cut out around photos and set aside.
4. Make larger circles from your scrapbook paper. Now use glue stick to glue photos onto place.
5. Embellish or doodle on if desired.
6. Using tape, tape toothpick to back of image.
If you notice, I used pics of my friends, but I had to use one of me too…it’s not every day that I wear something like this. Ha ha.
Until next time Swellions!

Those are great! I love the idea of using pics from Halloweens past… what a great way to celebrate those awesome costumes year after year!
Mind if I post a pic & a link to your tute on my http://dollarstorecrafts.com blog?
Go for it! I’d be honored.
What a fun idea! I want to make a bunch with past party guests, it would be a blast! I’ll be linking to this.

I used to make coasters with people’s pics, but this is way easier!!! Thanks for the great idea:-)

This is a fabulous idea. Guests will love this!
I love it! I’d use these for birthdays and other holidays. I think it would be great for birthdays, to show how much the person has changed over the years.

What a fun idea (although I can think of a few Halloween photos I’d rather not see the light of day again)!

This is such a fun thing to do with leftover photos… of which I have dozens!!!
