Are you ready for fall? Let’s see, apple cider . . . falling leaves . . . hearty soup . . . hayrides . . . my favorite sweater . . . hot chocolate . . . in the mood? Well, I might as well not long for fall alone! I’ve held my composure through the hot, hot summer and now I’m pushing for fall to get here. You can tell that crafts are turning and starting to look at fall, and beyond to Christmas. Whew!! Yes, I’m ready. In fact, I have a project to share using a release from a new set with JustRite Stampers called Autumn Labels Twenty Two. I used the largest stamp, the the others in the set are an adorable match. As it sat in my stash all month I thought about how long it stays hot in the south and how quickly fall disappears into winter. I pulled together a gift box that I’ll be sending along as a thank you for your hospitality gift. I thought I would make my own dry cider mix (you know with all those yummy smelling spices) and put it in a bow wrapped cellophane bag to go into the box. Or perhaps a box of caramels . . . . mmmm . . . I have to be the taste tester on that too . . . haa!!!
I colored two of the images with Copic Markers, and made a frame out of the top image – that double layer, which was cut with Spellbinder™ Labels Twenty Two, was added on top of Spellbinders™ Picot Edge Circles. Then I turned to construct the box – it is 4″ x4″x2″. Before taping the corners of the lid, I ran each side through my Grand Calibur with Spellbinders™ Classic Scallop Edgeabiltities to get the cool scalloped border. Hmmm, I could put packets of gourmet hot chocolate in here too. One day I’ll even be organized enough that I’ll have gift items made up in advance so that I don’t have the suffer the lastminute-itis that I go through when I know a gift is appropriate :-)
