Description:

Halloween cutouts are a grand old tradition in the United States. I grew up walking past house after house with cardstock-weight images taped to the windows every holiday and I am feeling a little nostalgic.

In this swap we will make two handmade cardstock-weight cutouts for our partners' windows, and send one to each partner. Each should fit into a 4 x 6 / A4 envelope, so that international shipping won't be a concern. Media can be anything that you desire -- plastic, paper, collage, paint, ink, etc., as long as it is strong enough to be cardstock-like. Theme is anything that you enjoy related to Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, harvest, etc. Scary, cute, vintage, modern, any style of art. Please be open to a variety of interpretations of the holiday! With a few partners, there might be a fun mix of holiday fun. You can send out the same cutout to both partners or make a different cutout for each.

Happy Haunting! Open to all ZMACS members in good standing. I will howl if I have to stress out about this, so as always, be good little beasties, fabulous ZMACer's!

Check out the cool stencil idea here, as well as a plethora of other vintage ideas!

I have a thing for pumpkins driving cars, which is a bit scary, I guess!

Here are some jointed ones -- as long as they fit in the envelope, jointed is good!

Well, I can always dream of a skeleton pickup truck, just as a final inspiration!
