article from Angie at Burton Avenue, I couldn't wait to try this adorable fall pumpkin door hanger. I found several hangers to choose from, but chose the same as featured in the article. I also found the ribbon and leaves at Dollar Tree. I have enough ribbon the make several more of these, so it really inexpensive. Bonus, the Oracal 12x12 vinyls sheets are on sale at Michaels this week for .99 each! I will say, after following the tutorial, I think I would not cut the vinyl and try to line it up to the pumpkin, but cut out a rectangle, stick the vinyl in place, then cut away the excess with a craft knife. The rest comes together quickly and uses a bit of hot glue to place the leaves and bow. I ran out of jute twine so I used linen thread as a substitute. Thanks for looking! April

I am selling at our local high school craft fair in November. Last year, these Hershey Kisses gift card holders were a huge hit, along with a couple other style of holders. You will find the link to my last year design here and the video tutorial here.
This year, I have three colors - Old Olive, Real Red, and Shaded Spruce. I am using retired 6x6 Stampin Up DSP, a sentiment using a Cricut print and cut on white cardstock, and punch art elves. The elf is made using Petal Pink cardstock for the face and ears. The face is punched with a retired ornament punch from SU, and a fiskars flower petal punch for the ears. The nose is a 3/8 inch circle punch and is attached with a foam dot. They eyes are punched from a 3/8 in circle in white and a 1/4 in circle in black. You can also use the owl builder punch from SU. The hat is punched in Real Red from a heart punch, then removing the bumps of the heart with an oval punch. I also made the green brim of the hat from the oval punch. I glued mini white pom poms on the tip of the hat and a hand drawn smile. Thanks for looking! April
