A Harvest Cornucopia with Paper Temptress!

Coffee of the Day - Spiced Pecan

Hello, everyone! Today is my first ever post as a new member of the fabby Paper Temptress Design Team! woooo hooo to that! :) I hope you are as excited as I am to see how everyone uses the fun products carried in the PT store. so much inspiration!!!

I decided to grab some of the Neenah Desert Storm cs to create a cute little cornucopia for Thanksgiving. I confess here and now that I am a kraft cs junkie. I go through tons of it. this particular cs has a nice weight to it without being too heavy. LOVE it! ;) easy to both die cut and emboss, which I did here. I used the Petal Cone die and Square Lattice embossing folder, both by SU!

 I added bows made from the lush pink and brown reversible satin ribbon and coffee brown twine. (just a heads up, if this twine is ever sold out in the store, it will be all my fault!!! grins! this is amazing stuff!!)

I used the same twine to wrap around the mouth of the cornucopia as well as to tie the bag of goodies that were tucked inside. so handy! the rest of the cornucopia was decorated with pieces from a pretty leaf pick I found at my local Michael's craft store. just added a few stickles around the edges of one of the leaves to give some glim glam and then a special vintage button. the beautiful bows with PT items set it all off so nicely, don't you think? :) perfect way to dress it up but still keep the rustic, harvest-y feel!
