Autuumn leaves....

Ahhhh....Autumn is coming!!!! My absolute fave time of the year. I love everything about it....the colors, the crisp air, the smells, the it all! Anyway, that was the inspiration for this project, plus I needed a bit of fall decor, lol. you go!

I had never made this box before and for some reason thought it was on the smaller side. But it's not! And, oh wow....I LOVE it! This is perfect for so many things! It will actually hold a nice amount of anything. Homemade cookies, Christmas candy, caramel corn (a fall fave), and fall leaves, lol!

The one thing I love about paper crafting is that you're the can customize anything for any season or occasion. This is super cute in fall colors, but how cute for Christmas with a Santa face or Christmas tree? An Easter bunny on the front and filled with Springtime goodies. The possibilities are endless!

I did a lot of inking on all the edges. I embossed a bit and added some white gel pen accents and some bling to the centers of the flowers. I printed my pattern papers and also inked those up. I popped up the element with foam squares. I hope you got a bit of inspiration from this and will try one of your own.

Here's what I used.

Pink Paisley Prairie Hill Paper (might be retired)

So, get out your supplies and create something fun for your home. Or make something for a friend! 
Happy Crafting!
