Time for Fall Ideas

September is upon us. The kick off to the busy holiday seasons. That also means crisp air, pumpkins, apples, scarecrows and more, so today we decided to share with you some Fall décor ideas for your home. Some may have already decorated for fall or it's on your list of things to get done. Now you can add a paper crafted piece to the mix. These projects are also great for gift giving for a hostess gift to a party you may be invited to.

First up is Debbie Naylor with this Fall banner featuring several Big Shot items and the Color Me Autumn product suite.  Please visit Debbie's blog to get more information about her project and view close-ups of the individual panels.

This candy jar was made by Rachel Yurkanin. She made a bow, added some leaves and an acorn and the project was complete (well, the chocolates inside really completed the project). Head over to Rachel's blog for more information on how she made her décor piece.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting us.
Be sure to come back next week for more great projects.
