Free Halloween Backing Papers & Labels

Sorry it's been a while since my last post.
Things got a little busy but I'm back now!
I've been working on some papers, labels and
tags for Halloween.
There are some free downloadable sheets
at the end of this post
I made some dinner table name cards
for a Halloween celebration we're having next month.
They measure 70mm square.
For the card fronts I used the blank 'Gothic
Labels' (at the end of the post).
I opened the jpeg in my photographic programme
and used my 'add text' to write the names of
my guests.
For the mount;
I cut a 70mm x 35mm strip of the 'cobweb lace'
backing paper (downloadable at the end of this post)
Mounted it onto a 70mm x 40mm length of black card
and attached it to the place card using double sided tape.
I then added the label using 3mm foam mount pads
I used the 'Gothic Labels - Happy Halloween'
for the back of my cards.
There are four small gemstones glued onto the
the four 'flourishes' around the label.
I filled the letters 'Happy Halloween' using
a quickie glue pen and crystal glitter and also
ran a fine glue line along the black mount,
top & bottom, and applied black glitter.

The card opens to reveal a Halloween question
and answer (again at the end of the post)'
I couldn't resist adding a couple of small spider punch outs.
Hope you have fun with the papers
(Click on the download you want.
It will view bigger.
Right click and save to your computer). 
Here are the downloadable sheets;
Gothic Labels 'Happy Halloween'
Gothic Labels Blank
(These labels are a little taller than the first sheet
to allow more space for stamping of writing)
Spider Lace - Purple

Spider Lace - Black/White
Spider Lace - Green
Spider Lace - Orange
Halloween Questions & Answers
 These are just fun questions but if you wanted
to do something a little more 'grown up'
you could include Halloween trivia.
This is a great place to find info and ideas:
Thanks for popping by
I'll be back very soon with more Halloween papers and tags.


  1. Hi there! Just came upon your blog today. I'm not very computer knowledgeable so I'm wondering how to download and print the spiderweb papers. I clicked on one of them and it just came up like it does when you click to view a photo. Do they print out at 8.5" x 11" or some other size? Thanks!!!

    1. Hi Colorado Crafter

      I've put an explanation at the beginning of the downloadable sheets.

      Hope that helps.
