Count Down to Halloween Printable
I love a good advent calendar. It’s the perfect excuse to stretch a holiday and celebrate for days, even weeks, at a time. While my Count Down to Halloween Printable isn’t exactly an advent, this cereal box gift it the perfect way to mark the days leading up to Halloween…
I originally shared a fun holiday cereal box with my neighbors in early March for St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve followed it up with a couple of options for Halloween. I shared a “Monster”ously Great Halloween print (Franken Berry), a Fangtastic Halloween printable (Reese’s Bats) and a way to turn around a Booring Breakfast (Boo Berry). The best thing about ALL of these cute prints though? You can use them with just about any gift during the Halloween season.
To recreate this Count Down to Halloween Printable you will need:
- Count Down to Halloween Printable (download available at the bottom of the post)
- Color Printer (I use a Canon Pixma Pro)
- 80 lb. Bright White Cardstock
- Fiskars Paper Trimmer
- We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile
- Fine Point Marker (I love these colorful Le Pens)
- Baker’s Twine
- Gold Scissors (Love these, they’re so sharp!)
- Optional: Halloween Cereal (you can buy Count Chocula at most grocery stores or online)
How to recreate this Count Down to Halloween printable gift:
- Scroll to the bottom of this post and download the Count Down to Halloween Printable.
- Save the printable to take it into a professional printer or print it on your personal color printer at home.
I use a Canon Pixma Pro for all of my printable gift tags and art prints. I find that often it prints a cleaner, clearer image than if I took it to a professional printer. The Halloween printable gift tags will look best printed on bright white 80 lb. cardstock.
- Trim the gift tags to size. I use this Fiskars trimmer for all of my projects. It’s substantial enough to cut through multiple sheets, while remaining easy to use.
- Punch a hole in the top of the gift tag. The We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile is one of my favorite craft tools. it will punch through anything, including an entire stack of gift tags with ease.
- Sign the gift tags with a fine point, felt tip marker. I love to use Le Pens. They come in a variety of colors and write so smoothly!
- Tie the gift tags to the cereal box using some baker’s twine.
Once you’ve assembled everything, the boxes are ready to be delivered to friends and family!
