The Kraft Journal #95!

 Hello friends!  Welcome to my blog today -- I hope you're having a perfectly wonderful day so far filled with things you love!!  I have a sweet seasonal project to share today that I recently created for The Kraft Journal #95 - 'Happy Harvest'!

For today's 'Happy Harvest' challenge, I created a 3-D pumpkin made from scalloped die cut circles with a wooden dowel adhered at the center for the 'stem'!  I wrapped a snipett of green tulle around the wooden dowel for some pumpkin greenery and created two pretty leaves from a scrap of  Burlap.  A nosegay was created at the base of the stem by die cutting several rolled flowers from Buff Ivory Card Stock and adhering them to the dowel.  A length of Adelaide Brown Seam Binding was made into a loopy bow and attached to the base of the flower bouquet.

A shabby little tag was created by inking a Small Kraft Shipping Tag.  The sentiment was stamped using the Happy Fall Ya'll stamp set from Paper Sweeties.  A snipett of green pom-pom trim was machine sewed onto the tag and then a button, Tiny Colored Wooden Clothespin and glittered chipboard star were adhered onto the tag.  Another rolled flower made from Buff Ivory Card Stock was glued onto the tag and lastly the tag was attached to the pumpkin with some Green Baker's Twine.

This project is so, so pretty IRL ... the pictures don't do it justice!  It goes to show you that you can take the most basic of things like a couple of scalloped circle die cuts and turn them into something pretty to decorate your home with or use as a gift!
