For my project, I decided to create a little home decor project to display on my kitchen hutch.  I love Autumn because of all the amazing colors, plus pumpkins and acorns and leaves, oh my!!

So, this is what I came up:
How cute is that?..LOL  and check out that toofy smile :)
I filled this paper basket with lots of Autumn goodies..

I took one of the pumpkins from the "Pumpkin Patch" cut file and decided make them 3D.. It was super easy and so much fun..  I cut 6 in total per pumpkin, 3 facing left and then flipped 3 to the right.. I created a fold in the middle, then gluing them back to back.. because both sides are different, you will need to switch between the left facing and right facing till you notice the last one will match, just glue together and there you have your 3D folded pumpkins..
I did the same thing with the acorns, they are from the "Nuts About You" cutting file, but there are two more steps to creating those.. You have to use the knife tool in your SIL Designer Edition software (if this is the software you are using) and cut one off the branch :)  oh, and because there are two pieces to them, I placed the cuts together in the software, filled em with color, printed and then cut around edge, having just the one piece..
6 per acorn, 3 facing left and 3 facing right.. 

extreme close up :)

Those little fall leaves are also from the same branch as the acorns, but this time I used the knife tool to trim one off of the branch :)  I then copied and pasted it as many times as I needed leaves, filling them with different autumn colors.. You can see how many options you actually have with these files.. 

I love that adorable little pumpkin, which is actually the pumpkin  I used to create the big 3D ones.  I used one of the facial stamps from the Peachy Keen "Piles of Smiles 3/4" set on him.  The green leaves are from the Falling Leaves cutting file.. I inked the edges with green distress ink and then bent them with my fingers, to resemble real leaves..
and I love the banner cutting file, so many cute shapes to choose from.. As you can see, I couldn't just pick one.  :)

and how about that little squirrel? He's also from the "Nuts About You!" cutting file.. because I cut him so small, I pieced him together in  the software, filled him in with color, printed and just cut around the edge to save on time and my patients..LOL

I love my white marker pen.. Added faux stitching to the outside of the basket..

I needed something to keep everything sitting in the basket properly, so I added a bunch of shipping twine and then created paper swirls from black cardstock, which I actually glued some of those leaves to, creating the illusion of there being lots of layers..

Now, for supplies used to create this project:

Silhouette Designer edition software
Silhouette Cameo
Canon home printer

black and white cardstock
Digital papers

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon cutting files:

and for that adorable facial expression on my pumpkin, I used Peachy Keens "Piles of Smiles 3/4"..

PK-145 Piles of Smiles 3/4″
I absolutely adore these cute faces :)
