Mexican Festival Of The Dead | Silhouette Cardstock & Chipboard
Hi Cheryl here again.
Boy I can’t believe how quick this year has gone and now the shops are dressed for Halloween and the Christmas stock is starting to come in!
I just love this time of year for all of the colours and on the 2nd of November there is a celebratory festival in Mexico where they remember and pray for family members who have sadly departed this world (you may have seen it on a recent James Bond movie).
This is my project for this week.
Craft Materials Used
• Silhouette Adhesive Backed Textured Cardstock
• Silhouette Chipboard
• DST / Wet Glue
Once the Chipboard is dry you can then assemble the bag using glue to hold the pieces together.
Then you want to stick the skull on the front of the bag and then building the face up with the other pieces. Then your bag is ready to be used.

All Of The Colours
I enjoyed making this project although I didn’t really know anything about the festival at first but since looking online and spending time on this make I know a little more.
I think this type of bag could be used for many occasions as lots of people love skulls.
This festival falls just before bonfire night here in the UK on the 5th November which sees us celebrate the one and only Guy Fawkes.
I can’t wait to show you what I have made for next blog post.
