Select 'Customise' to amend the size of the garland elements to suit, or 'Duplicate' to create more.

Step 2

Insert the Scoring Stylus into your machine (you can also use the Scoring Wheel if you have one of the Maker machines) and the Fine-point Blade.

Place a sheet of paper for the moons or stars onto the mat and make sure that it is well stuck down using the Brayer tool.

Load the mat into the machine to start scoring and cutting.

Repeat these steps to cut all the skulls and bats.

Step 3

Next fold along the score lines on each moon and star to give a really clean fold.

Assemble the moons (seven pieces) gluing the sides to the front and back.

Stick the front and back of the stars together.

Step 4

Assemble the skulls (three pieces) and glue the tabs to the corresponding parts.

Step 5

Layer up some of the bats, gluing the bodies together. Fold the wings out so that it looks like they are flying.

Step 6

Add twine to hang the skulls and moons to your desired length, then secure at intervals along the horizontal length of twine, filling the gaps with bats and stars.

Step 7

Hang the completed across your fireplace, or a doorway to add some spooky decorations to your home.
