Haunted Village: Backdrop

Haunted Village Backdrop

It is no secret that the Halloween season is upon us. Haunted House attractions are springing up in the community, neighbors are stringing spider webs in the yard and costumes are occupying a prime location in the stores.

This year we thought it would be fun to create a 3D Halloween Village. Starting today and each week, for the next three weeks, you will get another part of the diorama. It will be designed so you can fold it up and store it away for Halloween next year. After you put all the loving details into your project you will definitely want to use it again!

This week we are giving you the cutting file and instructions for the backdrop. Next week we will be adding a dimensional haunted house. Of course every haunted house needs a spooky graveyard plus all the traditional Halloween monsters. Those will be added in the following weeks. You can make it exactly as we do, or add your own personal touch.

Happy Crafting!

    LOVE this idea!!!! I love to decorate for Halloween and this is so perfect. Can’t wait for the next four weeks to see what happens. THANK YOU! You always come up with so many really nice ideas.

    Cute! I just completed part one! Loving my Pazzles Inspiration very much. I’m trapped at home due to medical issues and can not get out of the house. My Inspiration has been a blessing by keeping me occupied and sane. I listen to audio books on CD and create scrapbook pages for my 4 teenagers.

    Barbara, make sure you save the file to your computer. Then open the Inspiration Studio Software and go to File/Open. Find the file you saved and open it within the program.
