I'm Nuts About You for The Cutting Cafe
Oh, I love FALL and I'm just waiting for it...we have had some rather nice weather lately, which makes me want fall even more! I went with some lovely fall colors for this week's project for The Cutting Cafe, while I'm waiting for fall's colors to arrive in my yard.
I used the Acorn Shaped Card file (but as you can see I did not make a card and that acorn is considerably smaller). I sized the acorn detail pieces down to fit a tag and cut it with my Silhouette. I clothespinned the tag to a felt bag. And you can see some of those cute acorn cookies that I made to put inside.
The circle sentiment is part of the set, too.
I've seen a lot of toilet paper rolls turned into pouches. This is based on that idea, but I just rolled up a piece of felt (used tacky glue and couple of stitches to hold it together) and then zigzagged across the bottom. Super easy! I made it a little prettier by adding my favorites: ribbon, twine and button!
Regina will have all the DT inspiration posted tomorrow on The Cutting Cafe Blog - she'll have a giveaway, too! Hope you're having a wonderful week!
