These handmade Halloween card ideas are for ghouls and goblins of all ages who want to make some fun cards as part of any Halloween festivities.
I must admit, in my family, I’m not the one who feels any real inspiration from Halloween.
One can safely assume that my house looks nothing like the above image.
My front door doesn’t have spiders and webs all over it.
My front yard does not have gravestones or buried body parts coming out the grass.
And I certainly don’t have any zombies powered by a hidden extension cords saying creepy things to anyone passing by.
The only Halloween stuff I may do in October is wear these DIY glow-in-the-dark perler bead earrings.
However, the mission of Create To Donate is to inspire makers to craft for a cause.
I therefore want to provide all kinds of tutorials for DIY paper cards, because it’s important to charities that want handmade cards.
