It's Halloween season and we're expecting an influx of cute trick-or-treating photos to scrapbook! It's a good idea to already start looking for layouts and embellishments that are perfect for the spooky theme!
One embellishment idea that came to mind is a spiderweb! However, looking for a web stencil or die cut is hard... so I thought I'll just make my own from scratch!
For this tip, we'll create an awesome DIY spiderweb embellishment that will level up you Halloween-themed scrapbooks!
Watch the Video Tutorial:
The materials that you'll need are the following: paper, craft knife, ruler, and pencil.
Wait! Now That You Have a New Embellishment Idea, Then You'll Need To Know How To Incorporate It To Your Layout....Let Me Show You...
Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
First, get a piece of paper that is quite thick enough. It's important that we don't use a thin paper for this so it won't be a super flimsy embellishment.
With your ruler, let's slowly draw a spiderweb shape with a pencil. What you want to do is make two lines so we can easily cut it out later on.
Keep making straight double lines until all the angles are drawn.
Once your straight support webs are complete, start making the arched lines that will connect all the webs together. Again, make sure you draw it double.
You'll end up with a full web image like this! Looks cool, right?
Now, we'll start cutting out the entire shape from the paper. With a craft knife, carefully cut out the negative part. This is the reason why we made double lines, so our web will come out as a whole cutout.
Just patiently cut through the lines. What I did is go over the straight lines first, and once that's all done, I moved on to the arches.
You should be able to remove the insides of the web or the negative part as seen below. Keep going until everything is successfully cut! It's a bit tedious but I promise that it'll be worth it!
When you are finished with the cutting, you should have something like this. Isn't that amazing? By just drawing some lines and cutting, you're able to create a complicated-looking embellishment!
Now all you have to do is place your cobweb embellishment and complete your Halloween scrapbook page!
I placed mine on the previous background we worked on, it looks absolutely great on my bat silhouette design!
This embellishments will surely make your Halloween pages extra spooky and creative!
