Falling Leaves

It’s that time of year that we get to see lots of leaves and they are so pretty when they change colors. So I think was a little inspired by that when I created this little gift:

frame

I used the Sizzix die Leaves #2 and die cut a whole bunch of them in Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze. Then I shimmer sprayed them and crumbled them up. I opened them back up and let air dry.

The wooden frame was painted first before I attached the leaves (ONE by ONE) with hot glue. The funny part is, that acrylic paint I had was way to light, so I added a little Early Espresso re-inker to that and wouldn’t you know it… it turned out be be just like Soft Suede!

This is actually a very easy project and could be a special gift or your own seasonal home d├ęcor!
