Halloween has just passed so now's the perfect time to start scraping those wonderfully spooky photos. These spiders are easy to create and can be customized to your page using the Epiphany Crafts Shape Tool. I made the spiders on this layout with the Round 14 Shape Tool and a little bit of ric rac–easy peasy!


First you'll need to gather some supplies: Ric rac, paper to punch, the shape tool and the matching shapes.

I decided to use some Doodlebug Glitter Cardstock I had in my stash. Insert the paper into the Shape Tool. 

With the lid open, insert one of the shape from the sheet and press it into the paper with your finger. Place the insert into the tool and close the lid. Press down until you hear a click. Then flip the lid open, remove the insert, and remove the shape.


Now apply the shape to a Craft Glue Dot. Cut some small 1″ or shorter pieces of matching mini ric rac trim. Stick the pieces to the Glue Dot on the back of the shape so they stick out on either side like legs. Repeat until the spider has 8 “legs”.

After you've added all of the legs, apply the spider to another Craft Glue Dot and then add to your page. Easy peasy!!

Happy Creating!!
