fall project round up: part 2

Good morning crafters! Yesterday I shared part 1 of my Fall Project Round up, and today you get to see part 2. Here are a few more fall projects I created last month for the We R Memory Keeepers blog.

Embossed Fall Card

This season is the perfect time to include fun texture on your projects. Here's an easy way to add texture to your fall projects using embossing folders and ink to create a unique letterpress look.

I applied honey yellow ink to the inside of my embossing folder using a large brayer, and then slipped a 6x6 piece of ivory cardstock inside and ran it through my Evolution.

Fall Luminaries

Last month we hosted a homecoming date with four couples (including our twin sons and their dates). We served the lovely couples some dinner in our backyard before they went off to the homecoming dance, and went all out with fancy food, fancy china and fancy decor. To set the mood as they entered our home we decked out the front porch with a festive fall feel, including these fall luminaries.

The luminaries were also placed on the tables and created a nice atmosphere while they chatted and ate their dinner. If you’re entertaining in the evening this fall, or would just like to add a festive fall feel to your front porch or yard, you can make these luminaries easily with some simple white lunch sacks and some of your favorite We R tools.

Easy Fall Party Favors

For my daughter’s 12th birthday party I didn't want to spend a lot of time on favors, because let’s face it–6th grade boys don’t pay nearly as much attention to the favor packaging as they do to what’s inside the packaging. Right? With fall in the air I thought it would be fun to pass out some small bags of candy corn with a simple fall thank you tag attached. Making the fall leaf tags was quick and easy with the Leaf Punches Die.

The kids enjoyed receiving these–candy corn seemed to be a popular choice since it’s a seasonal favorite. Mom was happy with how easy the favors were, the party guests were happy with the treats–a win/win for everyone!
