The off the page theme this week is Halloween. I was really inspired by this month’s Leaf cut file designed by Kim Watson, so I decided to highlight them in my projects this week. I made a card and a gift tag that could work for both Halloween and fall.
I used my silhouette to cut the leaves on white cardstock. I cut it a couple of times in different sizes for variation. I backed a bunch of leaves with the Dear Lizzy Stargazer Make a Wish paper (both sides), and the Hip Kit Club exclusive Autumn Breeze Favorite Flannel Paper. I love how thick the Hip Kit Club paper is!
For the background of my card, I used some papers from the Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary collection, and adhered it to a white card base. I added 3 of the cut file leaves. I liked the way some of the leaves looked without pattern paper, and I made sure to attach it only in the middle so I can flip up the edges. I added the rubber sentiment, and a strip of white cardstock with the date. With just a few added details, like the Pinkfresh Studio stars, stitching, and gold splatter, I was able to finish my card. I found the gold polkadot paper gift bag in my stash, and I thought it would be cool to use it as an envelope. It is the perfect size, and I have a little room to slip in a fun size candy!
I loved the leaves so much, I decided to adhere 3 together with some twine, and attach it to a box of chocolate candy. Even individually, they would make great gift tags, but together, I really think it jazzes up the candy box! (Bonus: I still have more leaves left over for future projects!)
I also think that the leaves would make cute table setting cards for Thanksgiving. If my family was fancy, I would totally do that, but we’re not! We use paper plates and plastic forks when we have a get together…ha!
That’s it for me today! I hope I have inspired you to get out your silhouette machine, and create some fall projects! Don’t forget to check out the October 2017 Hip Kits! Thanks for stopping by!
