Paper Girls Blog Hop and a Giveaway!

We have a fun treat for you this week - a Blog Hop with The Paper Girls!
Our theme for this hop is FALL DECOR!
Make sure you leave a comment on my post for your chance to win the Paper Girls' gift certificate prize, but I'm also offering up some blog candy of my own! (details below!)

You should have come here from Jessica's blog, and if not, check the blog hop order on the Paper Girls Challenge Blog to get back on track!

On to my project...

I don't usually make much in the way of home decor. So I actually did a search for "Fall Decor" on Pinterest to get me thinking about some possible projects. I saw some wooden blocks decorated with leaves, and that reminded me of some Adorn-It paper boxes I had in my stash. These boxes measure 3"x3"x3" and were so easy to dress up with some paper and embellies. Take a look:

The other sides have some embellies and family photos on them, so the boxes can be flipped and rearranged to get some different looks:

I love how they turned out, so then I had to find a good spot for them in my home, and this prompted me to buy some other fall pieces, so this is what it all looks like right now:
I love fall, don't you?
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to comment, and then your next stop is Cathryn's blog!

  4. Adorable blocks! At first I thought they were wooden and then before I read on, I thought maybe they were upcycled kleenex boxes (I have saved a few for crafting). This would be great for those small square kleenex boxes.
