Halloween Pixie Frames
by Wendy Sue Anderson

Good Morning, Doodlebug friends!  It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing a fun way to use the new “pixies” on a Halloween layout featuring product from the new “Halloween Parade” collection!

I decided to cut the pixies in half and use the pieces to create frames.  They aren’t exactly perfect, but I think that it adds to the whimsical feeling that Halloween should exude!

I printed out photos (2 1/2” square) from last Halloween and used the pixies to frame them.

I also framed some patterned paper (from the 6x6 pad) and added fun stickers, tags, and other embellishments.
 

 

Of course I couldn’t resist using the fun and Colorful Star Jewels, Doodle Washi tape, and Doodle Twine too!
 

If you use pixies on your next project, be sure to leave a comment and let us know so we can see your creativity at work!  May your October be full of tricks and treats…but mostly treats!

HOW TO WIN
We'll be giving away a set of the new Halloween Parade Pixies and Toppers (shown above). All you need to do is leave a comment about what YOU would do with PIXIES. We'll announce the Doodlebug winner tomorrow on the blog and offer a new giveaway. And don't forget to stop by the Xyron blog to enter to  win some fun adhesive products.

  17. I would use the pixies to make flags. You could also use them for the stick on a lollipop. (Swirl baker's twine around & add the pixie stick.) The pixies could also be used to make a picket fence across the bottom of a page. Add a few owl doodle pops and you're all set !
