Pineapple Card and Faux Etching

{Pineapple Card}

Remember my Pineapple Trend post from a few weeks ago? I had to add my own to the list of course. 

It's been too long since I posted about cards and I loved how cute and easy this pineapple card is. Plus, I'll show you how I did faux metal etching on it.



Start by downloading this pineapple SVG so you can use your electronic cutter. Size it to 4 inches x 5.25 inches.

Then you need some metallic cardstock and pink cardstock.



Do some test cuts on the metallic cardstock to see what your blade settings need to be at to just cut into the top of the paper, but not all the way through. Then cut out the pineapple design.

Cut the pink cardstock to 5.5 x 8.5 and fold in half to make a card. Then glue the "etched" metal paper on top and you're done. 



Who would you send this pineapple card to?

Fall Jars with Dollar Store Flowers!

{Burlap and Lace Mason Jars for Fall}


I kind of fell in love with these cream colored sunflowers at the Dollar Tree the last time I was there. I was surprised, because it's tough to find good fake flowers that don't break the bank, you know? So I picked up a few things and came home with a plan.

Wood Hedgehog Place Cards and Cupcake Stand

{Cutting balsa wood with Cricut Explore}
I received a machine to participate in this contest, but all opinions are my own. Some links may be affiliate.


-->>If you think these guys are really cute, would you click here and repin please? Thanks!! 

Our Team 10 picked the theme Into the Woods for the Celebration category this month. We all had such good ideas! I had a lot of fun coming up with these two projects so let me show them off to you. I'll also include some tips for cutting wood with the Cricut.

First up are the little hedgehog cut outs. I cut them from balsa wood and added names in black vinyl to make them place markers at a party table (or how cute would these be at Thanksgiving!)
