Creative Park from Canon is a great place to look for free printables and paper crafts, mostly designed by Japanese illustrators. I checked out their new printables and tried to make some kawaii Halloween decorations. Let’s see how that worked out ^_^
I really liked the look of these DIY Halloween party mini toys! But let me tell you that Canon wasn’t kidding about these figurines being MINI…
The Creative Park printables come with clear instructions, explaining what tools you need and what the symbols on the prints mean.
Canon advised to use photo paper for this printable. This makes the print look very pretty, but as my photo paper is quite thick, it was a bit harder to cut. The cat’s tail was especially tricky.
Putting the figurines together was very simple though. You just have to put a bit of glue at the ends, and you can use your finger to create a somewhat round shape. I can recommend making these, especially the ghosts!
The ghost cupcake was a completely different story. It is so tiny and cutting all the sides took quite some time and patience. I also needed a small hobby knife (and cutting mat) to get to the small parts.
I do like the end result, but I did not feel tempted at all to make one of the other small cupcakes.
These ghost houses are from the same Halloween party DIY. I think these would be nice to make since they aren’t super tiny. However I didn’t want to use up much ink, so I decided to take up another printable.
These free printable ghost string decorations remind me of snake shaped decorations that I would make as a child. They can be printed on regular (thin) paper, so it was quite easy to cut out the shapes.
Beware of my scary ghost. Happy Halloween!
