Fall Colors

 Oh... the things you can find on  Youtube!!
I came across this video  by Amanda Maue on how to make a gift box with a 12x12 piece of cardstock.. It looked pretty easy to make so I thought  I'd give it a try.  I really like how it turned out.



This is with it opened up, wouldn't it be cute to add some pictures to the squares?  I think there is so much you could do with this besides a gift box. I was also thinking it would make a great Fall centerpiece.

For this project I used the new Harvest Gathering cardstock by DCWV, the Flower Shoppe cart, Pop-Up Neighborhood cart, Old West cart. SU marker& ink, and the crinkle paper and ribbon is from my stash.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I made this for a few challenges:
Love to Crop-  Fall Colors
Decorate to Celebrate-  Anything goes
My Craft Spot - Happy Harvest
Papercraft Weekend Challenge - Photo Inspiration

Thanks for looking!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

  6. Cked out the video that you used to make the Fall colors Autumn Box. Noticed the sound was very low even with my volume turned up high. I saw what papers were needed & what score lines to make. I'll start & then go back to the video or I may ask you a question of 2 if you do not mind.
