While I was busy giving away my Anna Griffin stash, I neglected to share some of the fun fall projects I was working on for the We R Memory Keepers blog. Here’s a little round up of some of those projects.
Fall Mini Canvas
There are so many thing I love about the fall–pumpkin patches, corn mazes, cool weather, fall leaves, hot cocoa, and of course fall crafting! Since fall is so wonderful I thought it would be fun some fall project ideas. I’ll start things off with a bitty piece of fall decor perfect for your mantle or other decorative shelf in your home.
I decided that I wanted to replicate the carpet of leaves in the photo on my page background, so I die cut several leaves using the Maple Leaves Nesting Dies, Leaves Punch Dies, and my electronic die cutting machine to create a lovely fall backdrop. I scattered them around my white-washed fence background paper, mixing the sizes and styles of leaves. For full supplies and instructions for this layout, visit the We R blog HERE.
Owl Pillow Boxes
When I think of fall, images of beautifully colored leaves are what first come to mind. But another fun fall icon that I love is owls. They’re darling on fall projects of all kinds. I was inspired by this festive critter to create some owl pillow boxes for fall. Take a peek!
I used my Pillow Box Punch board to create the box, and to create some feathers for the owl’s belly I punched out several notch shapes with my Thumb Notch Punch and layered them over the orange belly.
