{Halloween Banner}

Create a keepsake Halloween banner for your home with Spellbinders new die templates: Witches Brew and Nested Bats.


1. Start off by cutting out and embossing your Halloween images from the S2-282 Witches Brew Set.  I used black cardstock for mine which created a silhouette effect.  To make the flying bats I cut my bat dies using the Spellbinders die templates S4-277 Nested Bats.  Simply fold the wings up and secure only the center section of the bat to your paper with a glue dot.

2. Using the Spellbinders S7-018 Big Scalloped Border Grand die template, cut several border strips from purple cardstock.  My banner has 5 triangle flags so you will need 2 border strips on either side for a total of 10 strips.
3. Cut triangular shaped flags from a variety of patterned paper.  Mount onto orange and black cardstock.  My triangles measure: 4.5x7.5x7.5".  Using adhesive, adhere the scalloped strips to the sides of the flags.  Secure a strip of ribbon to the top of each triangle and fasten large brads to either side.

4. Cut out various shapes using a variety of Spellbinders die templates and labels.  I used the shapes from Spellbinders S5-022 Labels Ten, S4-190 Labels Four, S4-114 Standard Circles Lg, S4-194 Classic Inverted Scalloped Circles Lg, S4-112 Classic Ovals Sm, S4-113 Classic Scalloped Ovals Sm, and S4-187 Large Scalloped Octagons.  Contrasting solid colors tend to show up better against patterned backgrounds.  Mix and match shapes, colors and patterns and then assemble by layering certain elements with foam dots and embellishing others with buttons, ribbon and twine.

The Halloween images remain the focal point of the banner because they are all solid colors and are contrasted against bright patterns and designs.  Thread twine through the brads and secure a beautiful bow on either side. Your banner is ready for display!

  89. Clomiphene(Clomid) tablet
    What is this medicine?

    CLOMIPHENE is a fertility drug used to increase the chance of getting pregnant. It is

    used to help women ovulate (produce a mature egg) properly during their cycle. Compared

    to other fertility treatments, clomiphene alone does not greatly increase your chances

    of having multiple babies. An increased chance of having twins may occur in roughly 5

    out of every 100 women who take this medication. Occasionally clomiphene is prescribed

    to men with fertility problems due to low sperm counts.
