Fall Fun


A quick post today, I wanted to show you a couple hostess gifts I made for my club girls:


This little treat box is made from two Tangerine Tango envelope diecuts and decorated with Nite Owl DP and Silver Tinsel from the holiday mini.


The little candy corn box is from a template you can find here; I used a 4 1/4”x11” piece of white cardstock, along with Daffodil Delight, wheeled with the Cornelli Lace jumbo wheel and Tangerine Tango Patterns DP.

And finally a fun card made with a little Halloween-themed Bingo card:
