Hey friends! It’s me again, and I’m back to share my fall favorites. It’s the 2016 Fall Paper Craft Round-up!
If you’re like me, then it’s pretty tough to choose just a couple favorites. Fall is the best time of year. I mean, the leaves are changing, there’s a crisp freshness in the air, and everything is on pause before the onset of winter.
I mean… that’s what fall is like for you. I’m in South Florida. My kids are still enjoying the pool after school, and the only leaves falling are from dead branches. Wherever you are, the possibilities are endless and the fall Pinterest-worthy inspiration is all around. It may be eighty five degrees outside HERE, but I’ll take a pumpkin spice everything with a side of apple cider!
Top Five Fall Paper Projects:
Autumn Planner Stickers
You caught me. My first pick is the most recent post from MY BLOG. These stickers made my bujo planner pop with the glorious sunburst of autumn leaves. Anyone want to take on my laundry? I’ve conveniently left this off the to-do list. There’s always tomorrow! There’s a bonus cut file available, so you can re-create my hand-lettered look. Happy planning, friends!
Watercolor leaves card
This tutorial is from right here on the Silhouette Blog! More leaves, anyone? I’m in love with a bright flash of fall leaves. Even if it’s the paper variety. This quick watercolor fall foliage card is a winner in my book. It’s an easy DIY project and a beautifully appropriate seasonal card for your hostess gift, October birthdays, or a simple thank you.This gorgeous design features the artwork, Delicate Autumn Leaves – Design ID #96424
Fall place card
Who’s ready for a harvest-themed dinner party? I adore the simplicity and formality of this tent card. This elegant tent card uses two designs from the Silhouette Design Store. Look for Wreath with Banner, Design ID #50482 and Basic Tent Card, Design ID #4495.
BONUS IDEA: use Silhouette Faux Leather paper or double-sided adhesive and glitter (or both!) to make that wreath jump off the table.
Paper Owl Masks
Whoooo wants to be an owl? My kids change their mind about Halloween costumes, oh… at least every other day. These paper owl masks are intricate, detailed, and simply adorable. To get your hands on this design, look for Owl Mask, Design ID #96731.
Happy Fall Y’all, Watercolor Art
Last, but not least is this fresh fall décor idea. My friend Lauren over at Thinkingcloset.com loves her Silhouette CAMEO 3 so much that she dedicates a post to unboxing it in drool-worthy fashion. Then Lauren continues with a step-by-step tutorial to create this fun watercolor piece. Check out her blog for an easy-to-follow tutorial with loads of images.
Retail therapy is always a good idea, but step away from the stores this week! You can totally DIY all these ideas in a few hours and infuse your home with fall fun.
