Autumn Stroll Blog Hop! with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps



Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Autumn Stroll blog hop! If you didn't start at the Sweet 'n Sassy blog, hop back over there after you are done looking here:)

For my project I wanted to do something else besides a card, so I made this mini accordion file. I wish I could come up with templates but I have no talent for that, so if you'd like the instructions I used go HERE. If I figured it out I am sure you can too!

For my embellishing on the front I used the gorgeous Autumn Blessings set and colored my leaves and acorn with Copics. I added some punched borders, dew drops and PTI ribbon. In thinking about using it as a gift I thought about what I could tuck into the six pockets and decided on individually wrapped tea bags. Perfect for the cooling weather. To coordinate the tea bags with my pretty holder I inked up one of leaves with two different colors of ink and stamped directly onto the bag. I love the look and how you can still read what the tea bag says. I hope you have enjoyed my little project :) Your next stop today is Teresa.

Be sure to check out the rest of the hop for the next two days, the entire list with links is at the top of my right sidebar. Thanks so much for joining me! And be sure to scroll down to see a card I made using Autumn Blessings and this week's The Sweet Stop Sketch.
