Silhouette Sunday

Hello everyone.  I hope you're enjoying your weekend.  Mine has been a little busy, but at least today I can relax and craft between loads of laundry.

Today I have a Fall decoration that made using an svg file I got at SVG Attic.  I had so much fun making this and personalizing it.  It now sits on my desk at work and just love looking over at it.  Tell me what you think.

Isn't this fun?!  I love it.  The F and L's are little boxes, which to honest, I didn't understand but I suppose one could put plastics beads for weight inside.  I think my favorite is that bushel of apples.

I used paper from Colorbok - a stack that I picked up at Wal-Mart for $5.  The weight is very light so you'll want to set your settings on your Silhouette for copy paper and use a light tack cutting mat.  This worked best for me.

He's an adorable scarecrow.  Look at that smile.  I embossed the bushel basket with the Textiles embossing folder by Cuttlebug and then inked the edges for depth.  After putting the "binding" around the top and middle I put in antique finish mini-brads on every other slat.

I then cut two flaps off a card board box.  On one of them I ripped the top layer off to reveal the corrugated center and then hot glued the two pieces together to create a stable bottom.  Then hot glued each letter to the base.

I hope you enjoyed my project today.  Please leave me a comment to let me know you visited.

Thank you!

Well duh! The very first paragraph tells me it is sitting on your desk at work -- sorry, too early for me -- HA! I just think this is adorable and was caught up in looking at all the details that I didn't carefully read the write up!
