Create for your partner one collaged/crafted Banner, consisting of three panels strung together that spell the word BOO. LAVISHLY decorate in your best Halloween bedazzlement: glitter, laces, buttons, charms, rhinestones, trims, embellishments, photos, images, witchies, black cats, silky ribbons, or sparkly webs, etc.. Make it fabulous! Chunky! Over the top! Spooky! Awesome! No pressure!

Here are some examples:

Sender's choice as to design and style, but it's nice to read your partner's profile anyway.

"Flags" or Tags" in your banner should be between FOUR and SIX inches from top to bottom, and can hang horizontally or vertically. May be triangular flags, rectangles, round, squares, or other shapes!

Please make your banner sturdy, not just a single sheet of paper for each 'flag' or 'tag'. Best to use the sandwich method: cut your base shapes from cardboard or sturdy cardstock. Cover the back side with scrapbook paper, book pages, any complementary design or color. DO NOT LEAVE THE BACK OF YOUR BANNER UNFINISHED or 'RAW' CARDBOARD. It need not be decorated but we don't want ugly. Cover front side with a base of scrapbook or other decorative or collaged papers or other medium. Embellish front and decorate with images and trims, stamps, transfers, photos, etc., and of course the letters B O O.

Remember to punch holes or otherwise attach the pieces with ribbon, string, whatever suits your design, so your partner can hang it up when it arrives.

You may add more "flags or tags" if you like, but it is not required.
