Beautiful Autumn Gift Set

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing with you that projects that I made last night during my Facebook Live.  Last night I did viewers choice where they got to pick some of the items that we used and what we created.  I love doing Viewer Choice Lives because they are fun and sometimes really stretches your creativity.  But I will tell you they are normally a little longer video because it takes a little time for the responses to come in which never disappoints.  Here's a look at the two projects I made.  


Last night I started off my letting them decided if we would make a box or a card.  The numbers were pretty close so I did both.  After I knew what we where going to make I then let them pick the theme of the projects and everyone picked a Fall themed project.  So, after the theme I then pulled a few Fall themed sets and let them picked which one we would work with.  The Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set one out so it was time to start creating.  


So I started out with making the box and I showed my process of making a box for a certain item.  When I do this one of the first things that I do is I pull my Simply Score Scoring Tool out and I measure the item for the box.  I measure it on there because it helps me judge the size that I need.  I measure the width, height and thickness.  I also usually use a piece of cheap cardstock to start out but I didn't have any last night so I just did it with my Early Espresso Cardstock.  And had to go back and do it again because I had put one of the score lines in the wrong place.  Which was fine because I used the piece I messed up for the Circle Punches.  


My treat holder holds a Russel Stovers Pumpkin.  So it's prefect for Thanksgiving, Fall,or Halloween gift giving.  If I were giving it for Halloween I would change up the colors and designer series paper to something a little more spooky.  


To finish off the box I used the Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack for my closure and stamped the sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I also stamped the small leaves and acorn from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set and punched them out with the matching Autumn Punch Pack.  I added some of the Gilded Autumn Speciality Designer Series Paper to the front and back of the box before tying my ribbon into place, and adding the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals and the small leaves and acorn with Mini Glue Dots.  


For my card I used some of the same elements and design.  Instead of an Early Espresso card base I used Cajun Craze cut at 4 1/4" x 11".  I added the matching Gilded Autumn Speciality Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake Mat just like the box.  But I then added a second layer of DSP and a Early Espresso Mat.  I flipped the DSP to the other side and used it on this layer.  


I used the same leaves and acorn from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set on the front as I did the box.  And stamped the sentiment and punched it out the same way.  This helps tie the two projects together and makes the perfect little Beautiful Autumn Gift Set.  For the inside of the card I added a piece of Very Vanilla and a small strip of the matching Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.
