I originally shared one of these caddies back in April and used green Color Washed papers that looked beautiful on a spring buffet table (HERE). Now it is fall and we need a completely different color pallette. Lucky for me I was gifted a Pumpkin Spice Premium Stack by the kind folks over at DCWV!
One of the papers immediately grabbed my attention - a gold foiled leaf pattern on a very white background. Perfect! I have a set of Eileen's ColorBox Blends from Clearsnap and I decided to add a little bit more fall color! I used Stop and Sunshine to create a lovely orange and applied it to the paper.
I used double sided adhesive sheets from Therm O Web to adhere the paper to one side of a piece of mat board. I flipped it over and applied the blended orange ink to the entire surface before die cutting the Card Organizer. (Note: When using Eileen's dies, remember to place the "right side" down - the foiled paper in this case - and it will be cut and scored for the outside.)
At this point I want to mention that the paper is 12" wide and the die cut is actually closer to 13". Do you see the white tab on the left in the photo above? That tab does not show in the finished piece as it is folded to the inside as the box is assembled. I paid close attention to the placement of the die and purposely lined that up!
Another paper that caught my eye was a beautiful light wood grain. In this instance I decided to piece a couple strips of the paper so that the entire mat board was covered. (I still lined it up so that the pieced portion ended up as the tab.)
I adhered the wood grain paper to BOTH sides of the mat board so that the organizer box would be lined. I assembled the box according to instructions, using 1/4" Supertape on the tabs. I folded and adhered the sides first and then added the bottom piece last.
There were several papers in the DCWV stack that had foiled accents and I had an idea for a foiling technique I wanted to try using Deco Foil™ sheets from Therm O Web. I die cut and assembled another organizer box so that the Easy Cut Adhesive was on the outside.
I peeled off the protective cover sheet from one side. I took a piece of Gold Deco Foil™ and crumbled it all up so that it was nice and wrinkled. I lightly touched the foil to the adhesive and then lifted it off leaving behind a grungy bit of foil. Perfect! I repeated it many times leaving little splotches of foil all over the side of the box. Next I took a nice smooth piece of the Gold Deco Foil™ and laid it on top. I burnished the foil before peeling it back to reveal a really cool texture!
I made 2 more organizer boxes using a purple paper from the Pumpkin Spice Premium Stack. It is covered in gold foiled words and phrases: PUMPKIN PATCH, APPLE CIDER, GRATEFUL, HAY RIDE, etc.
When I was done playing I ended up with a total of 6 finished Organizer Boxes.
I grouped them together in sets of 3 and tied them together with ribbon...
...and twine, tucking in a sentiment card from the paper stack. These are going to look great on dessert tables this fall!
NOTE: I purposely did not adhere the individual boxes to each other because I want to be able to mix and match them in the future. The wood grain boxes and the gold foiled box are neutral and are going to be easy to change up with new patterns in the future!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
