Cat Eyes Made Easy - Another Black Cat and A Scotty

I'm sticking with my tradition here.  Black cats continued...  They really are my favorite part of Halloween.  

This black cat starts out as just a chipboard face.  I added a party hat and I like that.  But I kept thinking about the eyes.  There were no eyes.  I just kept thinking he needs eyes!  I tried a few different things and didn't like how any of them looked.   I really wanted him to have green eyes, probably because my black kitty has green eyes.

Then AHA! I figured out the perfect solution.  And so easy too.  Start with a circle and cut part of it away.  I then added a thin piece of black cardstock.  And Yes!  These eyes look just the way I want them to!

I thought I could punch a hole in the top and add some twine and he would look really cute hanging out.  He also works perfectly to gift a little treat.  I just clipped a small treat bag to his ear.

A scotty for Halloween?  Sure, why not?  He's a cutie and I love the background.  I've got him all ready for you to download, if you would like to make a little Halloween something with him, too.

The sentiment comes with the download, too.

Download Halloween Scotty HERE.

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you.

Oh, my gosh!  I've been so busy.  Making things and off to Savannah three times already!

I made Louisa's costume and, of course, she's going to be a black cat.  Her mommy, Lauren, was a black cat for her third Halloween.  So it's sort of a tradition.  I got the costume all ready to go and shipped it to Savannah.  When I got there, we tried everything on and made adjustments.  Isn't she adorable in cat ears?

So glad you stopped by!
