Happy Fall!

Good morning and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I'm so glad you stopped by because I have a special project to share with you today.  This week and next week the designers from Peachy Keen Stamps and Timeless Twine will be sharing projects showcasing products from these two fabulous companies!  Great combo, don't ya think?  I can't wait to show you what I came up with using some great Peachy Keen Stamps and gorgeous Timeless Twine!

I recently stocked up on some great fall scented soaps and lotions. I love to have these on hand for gifts and I love to present them in a special way.....

(click on photo to enlarge)

The "How-tos":
* I started with a cute little Halloween doorknob treat box I came across in the Silhouette Online Store.  I removed the hole for the doorknob and cut out the box using Kraft paper.
* I cut an extra piece to add to the inside of my box and ran it through my crimper.  Next, I inked up all the edges and assembled the box.

* I wrapped some beautiful, rich Chocolate Chip Brown twine around the top of my box several times. Then I made a big, loopy bow and finished it off with a bright orange button.
* My sentiment is from the Peachy Keen Stamp Set PKSC-09 . After stamping onto a hand cut banner, I adhered the banner just under my twine bow.
* I also wrapped the top portion of my soap bottle with more twine and added another fun orange button and bow to dress up the bottle a bit.

* My adorable scarecrow is from the Peachy Keen Stamp set PK-648 and his sweet little face is from the  PKS set PK-692.  I colored his face, hair and straw with my Copic Markers and paper pieced his clothes.  I even added a cute little belt made from that great Chocolate Chip Brown Twine!
* The pumpkins are also paper pieced and are from the PKSC-09 set.

So, what do you think?  I'm thinking Peachy Keen Stamps and Timeless Twine make a great team!  Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon....

Until next time,
