***Please keep in mind each graphics program is different and the instructions may need some altering to suit your specific program needs!***

Files needed from Trick or Treat Digital kit:

  • Orange Trick or Treat paper
  • Photo mat – Yellow (you will use 2 copies of this)
  • Brad – Orange (you will use 3 copies)
  • Dotted Ribbon – Black (you will use 5 copies)
  • Stapled Ribbon – Black (you will use 3 copies)
  • Word labels & Alpha as needed.
  • 4 of your favorite Halloween photos


  1. In your graphics program, open a new 12x12 document.  Copy and paste the Orange Trick or Treat paper as the background. 
  2. For the following instructions, place a small drop shadow on each element as it is placed. Adjust sizing to fit your pictures.
  3. Copy the black dotted ribbon twice.  Place the top edge of the first one approximately 6 ¾ inches down from the top of the layout.  (These ribbons are created 15” long so they can be placed diagonal.  Resize as necessary, holding the shift or control key to maintain proportions.)  Place the top edge of the second ribbon approximately 7 3/5 inches from the top of the layout. 
  4. Place one copy of the Yellow Photo mat on the right side of the layout, just inside the flower graphic (approx 1” from the right edge of the layout).  Match the edges along the top and stretch the length of the mat to just above the ‘Trick or Treat’ graphic (approx 9 ¾ inches).
  5. Place second copy or the Yellow Photo mat on the left size of the layout approximately 2 ½ inches from the top and 1 ½ inches from the left edge. 
  6. Make 3 more copies of the dotted black ribbon.  Place each on the stretched yellow mat, evenly spaced.   Place each of the three orange brads at the top of these ribbons. 
  7. Photos:   Place your focal point photo on the mat on the left of the layout.  Size the 3 remaining photos equally and place along the stretched photo mat. 
  8. Other Elements:  Place the 3 stapled ribbons evenly spaced along the right edge of the top 2 photos.  Add chipboard letters and word labels as desired.
