Vampire Academy

By Partycraftsecrets
Vampire Academy It's no secret that today is Bram Stoker's birthday... Google tells you with a spooky picture when you launch it (which is how I know!)
As this site is all about party-craft, I decided to wish Bram Stoker (the creator of Dracula) a happy birthday by sending my students (you) to 'Vampire Academy,' and posting a quick 'Vampire Craft 101' project for how to turn family members into vampires.
"How do you make a vampire photo?" I hear you ask.  It's simple;
  • Find a family photo that has a large face (open mouths or big smiles work best) I'll leave it to you to decide whether to make a vampire of your 'little monster' or whether the effect will be better on 'your angel,'
  • Be sure that it is not a boxed frame (as the distant between the glass and the photo will be large and the effect won't work as you move off-angle from the picture.)
  • Cut a small rectangle of white paper sized to suit (I exaggerated mine to make it obvious, but smaller, more subtle teeth would be more classy),
  • Cut the rectangle diagonally in half so that you have 2 triangles,
  • Use temporary-tac to fix the two triangles in place onto the glass above the mouth,
  • Step back and be impressed... scared... or amazed!
  • (Feel free to temporary-tac googly-eyes over the picture for added effect.)

{Now my photo probably looks a little odd as I had to move off-center to avoid glare on the glass in the photo... and because I had already 'tweaked' it for Mimi's 5th birthday party by adding gilded crown stickers onto the glass to turn my daughters into princesses... which is why I now have a vampire-princess being wrestled by her sibling... as you do!!}
If you have fun with this project, be sure to make a whole vampire family for next Halloween, when you have a monster-party, or even for Friday the 13th.
Go on - get your teeth out!
Grrr... or is that vwah-ha-ha (evil laugh)...
Linda!
