Our Creative Corner - Think Fall

Hello and thanks for stopping!! Today’s samples are for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Our September host, Dana Grothaus, has challenged the OCC to create a card/project using fall as our inspiration.

Since 3 of my kids are in school now, I need to create something quick for my kids homeroom teachers! From the cards to the card holder, these double pocket bags are really fun to make and can be mass produced very easily! Here is a wonderful tutorial from Jenn Diercks. Here are some other fun samples that I have created in the past: Christmas Tag Holder & Stamps and Smiles - Project Tuesday.

My second project/card was created from another wonderful tutorial by Hero Arts. These gift card holders are really easy to make and LOTS of fun!
Here is a quick peek inside the gift card holder:


Here is another fun sample using this same idea: Christmas gift card holder



Note: I did not create this video nor do I take credit for it - I am sharing this video from the Hero Arts Blog.

Don't' forget to stop by the OCC to check out the other wonderful samples by the Design Team. We warmly invite you to play along. This is no time limit on our challenges, feel free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Have a wonderful weekend!

Just wondering is that is designer paper? That is perfect for fall! I love that Hero Arts tutorial and have it bookmarked myself! It's so simple to do!
