My Cricut Craft Room's Fall Favorites Blog Hop

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's Fall Favorites Blog Hop!  You should have started at My Cricut Craft Room, if not make sure you start back at the begining so you don't miss any great fall projects!

For the blog hop I decided to go outside my comfort zone of scrapbook layouts and create some decorative blocks.  I got the inspiration from another cricut scrapper.  The cricut circle group put on a fall blog hop last month and two of the ladies made blocks to share and I just loved how they came out.  I only have the blog address for one,
http://designsbysharon.blogspot.com/  but both designs were amazing.  This is my attempt at decorative blocks!


I used Sweet Tooth Boxes for the decorative blocks and Sophisticated for the letters.  The leaves and acorns come from the Winter Is In The Air Seasonal cartridge (this cartridge is a sampler one, filled with images from other carts)

The blocks, are the cube boxes on the Sweet Tooth Boxes cart and cut at 10.5 inches.  I used my Gypsy to add the letter cut (from Sophisticated at 2.54 inches.  Once the images were cut, I added a piece of fall paper where the letter cut out was.  Then followed the score lines and folded the box.  The bottom of these blocks is open, so it is not a complete cube.  The leaves and acorn were cut in mulitple colors at 1.24 inches.


So that's my fall project for you today! I hope you like it!

Now you should go to Erica's blog to see her wonderful creation!

If you get lost along the way, here is the entire line up:

  13. This can be used in so many ways, as you showed staking them. Also no need to put holes in the wall, you can place them all over, or put holes in the wall and put them there too.
