Halloween projects tend to fall into two categories, seriously creepy or frightfully fun. I prefer the later, and fun is exactly what I had in mind when I put together this Halloween pocket swap page.

To begin cut your cardstock into 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ rectangles. This is a pretty average size and exactly what you need if you are using trading card pages.

From there you can go crazy with the Susan Weckesser Inks, experiment, and try new things. Above, I used stencils from my stash to spell out Trick and Treat. Below, I highlighted the papers texture by lightly dragging the ink pad over it.

A Halloween page would be incomplete without a menacing character of some sort. A mummy is by far the easiest to create. Glue down two googly eyes onto a white card and then wrap it in gauze.

To make a folding card just cut a 2 1/2″ x 7-inch strip of paper and fold it in half lengthwise. These pockets within your pockets make it easy to hide treats like stickers.

Cover another card with googly eyes and be sure to include a little message!

Confetti is another favorite pocket item. It’s also a great way to tie together multiple colors and designs. Our glow-in-the-dark lizards didn’t fit inside pocket but they’re easy to glue to the outside!

Before you put away your supplies be sure to decorate a business-size envelope. Sometimes the package can be as lovely as the present!

When you’ve finished creating, carefully put your cards into your page, fold it into thirds, and slip it into your envelope. Swap it with a friend or include it in a BOO Kit, just be sure to share it!
