Fall is my very favorite time of year. One of my favorite things to do is go see all the beautiful fall colors in the mountains. I thought it would be fun to bring the fall colors inside, so I put this fun Fall Centerpiece together. Today I’m going to teach you how to make it.

fall-centerpiece Supplies:

Step 1: Using the Kraft-Core Core’dinations Cardstock, cut out your leaves for the mini banner. Cut your letters using the 6 x 6 Kraft Cardstock. I did this using a digital die cutting machine.

Step 2: Using the Sand It Gadget, distress the leaves.
