Fall Door Decor

Fall is in the air, don’t you think? And, I love the fall season! The cooler weather, leaves changing and pumpkin spice are all so nice.

Hey there! Today I'm here with a fall door decor project created for CutCardStock. You can be sure to find a wide variety of card stocks in lovely fall colors there that are perfect for all your crafting.

My project was started by choosing some brown and orange card stocks, which are on sale this month.

DCS Discount Card Stock: Textured Flame Tree Orange Card Stock

Pop Tone HOT FUDGE 8.5×11 Discount Card Stock

Pop Tone ORANGE FIZZ 8.5×11 Discount Card Stock

KRAFT CHIPBOARD .022 for all your crafting needs – 25 pack

I created 4 rosettes with 4 layers and die cut letters spelling fall, which were added to a length of burlap ribbon.

Create the larger rosettes for the bases of each by cutting 3 strips of card stock measuring 3 x 11 inches. I punched a border on each strip, but they can be left plain if desired.

Each strip was scored every 1/2 inch and accordion folded. I used double sided red line tape to adhere 3 strips together to form a circle. Squeeze the inside edge of the circles together and hot glue 1 1/2 inch die cut circles to the center top and bottom of each piece. My rosettes measure approximately 5 1/2 inches.

I die cut 4 pieces of the Kraft Chipboard with a scallop die measuring 4 inches.

4 more rosettes are made by cutting 3 strips of 8 1/2 inch x 1 1/2 inch strips of card stock. These are put together the same as the larger ones. I used 1 inch die cut circles to secure the centers.

Banner shapes were die cut for each rosette. Letters spelling “FALL” were die cut out of a scrap piece of  Royal Sundance FELT Brilliant White 8.5×11 Card Stock.

With all my components complete, I’m ready to assemble.

Each rosette piece was layered and hot glued together as seen in the photo below.

The burlap ribbon was cut approximately 28 inches. I folded the top over to form a loop and ran a piece of wire through to act as a hanger. Hot glue the rosettes down the length of ribbon, spacing evenly.

Thanks for taking a look at my project. I hope I’ve inspired you to try a fall project.

As always, we would love for you to connect with us over on the CutCardStock Facebook Page and the Facebook Group Creating with Card Stock for more inspiration.

Gift Bag, Tag and Card Set

I like dressing up plain gift bags and making coordinating tags and cards! It makes for an extra special way to present gifts, don’t you think?

Hey there! Today I'm sharing my latest DT project for CutCardStock.

My set was created with a bag I had sitting around the house, fabulous card stocks, stamps, dies and a little coloring.

Getting Started

Start by choosing what you would like to use as focals and coordinating card stock.

I chose a stamp set with coneflowers from Crafter’s Companion and black ink.

Cougar White Smooth CardStock

Stardream Metallic GOLD 105 lb Cardstock

DCS Discount Black Card Stock

A purchased plain black gift bag

Flowers and leaves were stamped onto the white card stock and colored with various markers.

Base Pieces

Next, I cut my card stock pieces. 

For the bag gold was cut to 6 x 6 inches, black 5 x 5 inches, white 4 7/8 x 4 7/8 inches.

A 5 x 6 1/2 inch black card base was created by folding a 10 x 6 1/2 inch piece of card stock in half along the 10 inch side. Gold was cut to 4 1/2 x 6 inches. Cut a piece of black to 4 x 5 1/2 inches and white to 3 7/8 x 5 3/8 inches.

The tag is comprised of a gold base 2 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches long. I punched the top edge with a tag punch and rounded the lower corners. A piece of white was cut 2 1/2 x 3 inches. Two pieces of black were cut to 2 1/2 x 1/2 inches.

Adhere the pieces for the bag, card and tag as shown in photo below.

Finishing Up

Die cut sentiments for each of the three pieces. Fussy cut the flowers and leaves.

Adhere the flowers and leaves to each piece.

Complete by adding sentiments and any other items to embellish. I stamped dragonflies to the bag piece and added gems to the card.

Adhere the base pieces to the bag and card. Attach the tag to the bag with twine.

I hope you have enjoyed my gift bag, tag and card set and provided a little inspiration.
