Color Me Autumn Meets the Envelope Punch Board

I love fall!  It's my favorite season...the smells and colors, the crisp air, leaves dancing in the wind, back to school time, sweaters (I love sweaters!), pumpkin, apples, cinnamon and Thanksgiving which is by far my favorite holiday...sometimes we celebrate both Canadian and American Thanksgiving at our house because I love it so much!  What about you?  Leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite season is!

The other day I was playing with some of my new Holiday Catalog stuff, of course the fall themed stuff, and came up with a cute box.  Did I mention how much I love my job????  I get paid to play with paper and ink...what could be better!!!

I used Soft Suede cardstock and the Envelope Punch Board to make my box (if you don't already have the Envelope Punch Board, you NEED one!).  It's embellished with some Color Me Autumn DSP, luscious Hello Honey ribbon and a cute, rustic little wooden acorn (yep, we have autumn wooden elements in the Holiday Catalog!).  The sentiment comes from a fantastic stamp set called Merry Everything and is full of tags for all the occasions from now to New Years!  And, here's the best part, it has a coordinating punch!  You know how much I love it when stamps have coordinating punches or framelits!!!

I put together a little photo tutorial for you so you can make some of these great little boxes.  You are going to want to start with an 8x8 piece of cardstock and then just follow the tutorial.  Remember,  you can click on the picture to make it bigger (and don't forget to pin it so you remember how to make it!).

I put some apple cider packets and a little 3x3 card in my box so it's all ready to give to someone special this fall.

When the Holiday Catalog goes live on Aug 28, you will be able to order everything you need to create this box at home in my online store.  Grab the shopping list and place your order before the end of August with the hostess code JVPYSGHR to be entered to win a pack of the new gold buttons from the Holiday Catalog!

  1. Hi, happy fall. I also love fall my favorite time of year. Your box is really pretty and I love your idea of adding apple cider drink mix with your cards, how clever and a really special treat. What a great gift at Thanksgiving.
