Holy Batwings, I made a Batmobile

A few weeks back I saw some bats that Kat over at Everybody Loves Raymond...and Kat had made out of scrapbook paper.

It was love at first sight. With the paper bats, that is. I just knew I had to have them. Which meant, I was going to have to make some myself.

So I did!

Kat hung her bats from some branches. I decided to make mine into a bat mobile.

Not that kind of Batmobile.

This kind of batmobile.

If you want the pattern for the bat and a tute on how to make them, you will have to click on over to Kat's blog by clicking here. I'm too lazy to tell you myself.


I already had all the paper on hand. I got the Martha Stewart black glitter at Michael's with a 50% off coupon.


I needed nine different bats to hang from my chandy. I don't have a Silhouette machine or a Cricut machine. And since my paper wasn't double sided, that meant I hand to hand cut 18 different bats. I used a glue stick to glue the bats together. I then used cheap dollar store white school glue along the edges & covered the glue with the black glitter. I hung the bats from the chandy with black curling ribbon.

I love my batmobile. Now if only I could get Batman to show up to my house in the real Batmobile and take me for a spin. Varooooooom!!!!!

  7. Adorable! It's just brilliant how you mixed all of the damask-print papers in with your Halloween decorations. I'm mixing in some zebra this year, isn't it all just so fun? Hope you and your family are having a great fall season! Thanks for the inspiration, Kim.
    Cheers, Andrea
