This was the first item I purchased from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It was so much fun to make. I has been up and on display since August! I did find that using a spray adhesive on the back of the stencils was crucial or bleeding occurred as I sponged on the ink. I have also heard that Sponge Daubers work better than sponges. I have yet to check this out. My next project is to use the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit to make a wreath. Check back this weekend to see my progress.
