Welcome to the August A PAPER PUMPKIN THING blog hop. We have a beautiful kit called The Gift of Fall to play with this month. THESE ARE MY COLORS! Summer is my favorite season but it's closely followed by fall - I love the rich, colorful colors of fall and this kit is GOR-JEE-OUS! I have a video tutorial that shows all the details and a step by step tutorial showing how I made my cards and gift box for today's hop here:

These colors are just so rich and pretty. I chose a Pretty Peacock card base and the color vellum die cuts with the colorful banner for my first card. I used Pretty Peacock to stamp my sentiment on the Crumb Cake die cut banner.

And then those little bags - oh my! I chose to cut off the top and make a little box container. I folded the top edge of the bag over about 1/2" to make the top nice and sturdy.
