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!!!!!
