An Empty Fall Box!

I needed to be a little creative tonight to give my brain a rest from many hours of cutting paper.  I pulled out my Season of Friendship stamp set from the upcoming Holiday Mini and decided to play.  I just love this stamp set.  I love that the tree is so versitale and there are so many ways you can stamp it.  I decided to make this box which is super duper easy.  I will give dimensions in just a minute.  But FIRST…I have a problem.  What should I put in this thing??  Should I make some matching cards to go in it?  Candy?  What would you put in it?

Fall Box

















I cut many of those little leaves out and popped them up just a wee bit using glue dots.  I edged some of them with Chocoloate Chip ink as well.  See that ribbon?  That is from the Holiday mini as well.  Yummy!  It’s FELT.  I love it.  I also used the new designer paper called Autumn Vine.  Beautiful paper. 

Now, to make the box… super easy.  6×10 Cardstock.  Score 1" on each of the long sides.  Then turn your cardstock and score at 5" and 6".  I sure do like that birdie.  It is sooo cute. 

Here is a close up of my leaves.

So the challenge of the night is…. What to put in this little box???  I am up for some suggestions!

Back to cutting!  Have a fabulous day!

  1. Such a beautiful box should be out where it can be seen and appreciated so……

    Make this a Blessing Box:

    Ask people to daily put in a piece of paper what blessing was theirs today and then come Thanksgiving read them all around the table.

    or a different kind of blessing box…..

    How about a list of online groups like and their other lists where you can paritcipate for free daily to get food into the hands of the hungry.

    Local Foodbank addresses with a note as to their days for helpers or donations.

    List contact numbers for the local Blood Bank or Cancer Society or other groups in need of a few extra hands or pints as the case may be as we head in to the holiday season.

    or any other suggestions for being a blessing to others locally and globaly so that as we approach our Thanksgiving Holiday we can be thankful that others have been thankful for us.

    And oh yes Candy would also be a blessing for those of us in serious need of chocolate inspiration or infusion.

    I’m thankful for your inspired creations and your sharing heart!

  2. Oh, that is just stinkin’ cute!!! Sticking with your fall theme–nuts! No, you can’t be stickin’ acorns in there, but how about mixed nuts, or those super nummy cinnamon glazed almonds that smell so incredible? Put’em in a cello bag, tied with more of that fun felt ribbon! Voila!

  3. If you’re giving it to a friend, you could print out lots of friend quotes or devotionals that they could pull out each day and read. It’s a beautiful box, no matter what you put in it, even it’s nothing at all! I love visiting you blog – you’re very inspiring!

  4. I don’t know what to put in it, but it is just gorgeous! All those little leaves look fabulous popped up!

  5. Kimberly! This is so gorgeous! I think that anything you put in there is going to be outshone by the box. I don’t know the dimensions, but if you’re giving it away to a friend, a new SU! In Color Stamp pad might be perfect! So darling!
