Fall Table Favors

Fall is really in the air here in Ohio!! So sad to see our brief summer go, but hoping for a spectacularly colored autumn. Even my projects are taking on an autumn feel—like these two table favors that I've made from handmade papers.

I made the paper following these basic instructions. I used tinted tissue to achieve the lovely autumn gold color. Then, using the templates that I've included, I traced the pattern onto the handmade paper and cut them out. 

Here is a pyramid lantern that would be perfect to decorate any autumn or Halloween tablescape.

I love this little pumpkin bubble box!! It is self-closing and requires no glue. I cut the leaves from an old silk flower I found in my stash. The golden vines were made by coiling the wire around a chopstick.

Hope that you enjoy autumn and continue to made projects using hand made papers.

  3. Carole, maybe you'd consider adapting the pumpkin box idea for the wedding feature in January? Looks like it could be a wonderful favor box. Thanks!
