I would like to discuss our kits a little bit before I show you my projects. I know at times that some of you prefer not to receive 3D projects….just cards. I can just picture you opening your box only to find…3D projects. You close your lid and push the box aside. Now for me, I look at the 3D project layers and embellishments and my mind gets to working full speed ahead. What can I do with these items? You need to challenge yourself.
So first let’s start off with what the project is all about this month:
This to me is in no way screaming Halloween. It is screaming FALL! Look at that adorable carmel apple. The best part about paper crafting is sharing and giving. Do you not have a family member, a friend, a co-worker, a neighbor…that would love to have this small gift? Do you love to “pay it forward” by just causing someone to smile as you hand them this cute project? I added caramel candies to my treat bag….yum!
Let’s see what else we can make with the items in our box this month. Here I used one of the straws and one of the fringe pieces, and I glued the fringe piece around and around the straw until it was all glued in place. I then took my Bone folder and curled all of the fringes one by one. Once I had them looking the way I wanted, I trimmed the straw down until the broom sat all by itself. What a great centerpiece for a table or shelf…again, even though I used the “Happy Haunting” sentiment, it screams fall to me!
For this bag, I did not glue the additional fringe piece. I just curled the fringe that is cut at the top of the bag and added a Spider Web Doily in the center. The remainder of the layers are all included in this months box:
Dig out some Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant and Smoky Slate Cardstock and Inks and make this cute card. I even added a partial Tea Lace Doily to the tag:
This card makes me giggle. I saw a card made by Linda Aarhus that was similar to this. Only instead of Fringe Scissors, I used the fringe that was included in our box. I added eyes using the 3/4″ and 1/2″ Circle Punches:
Now for this one, I took a piece of fringe and cut off every other piece. I then created a trellis by weaving the loose pieces:
