SIP Challenge #22 Free For Fall

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  It's been a rainy cool couple of days here in Middle Tennessee.  The cool weather is a nice change, although I may not being saying that in a month or so when we are in the single digits!  Since it's Tuesday, it's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge.  This week's theme is Free For Fall.  Make something with a fall theme and link it up.  It's that simple!
I decided to make some napkin rings. with a Paper Towel roll core, some strips of Burlap, and the Vintage Leaves stamp set and coordinating Leaflet Framelits.  Here's what I made..

I started out with a core from a roll of paper towels that I cut into pieces that were 2" in length.   I then used strips of burlap that were 7" long x 2 1/2" wide.  I used Beacon 3 in 1 glue to adhere the burlap onto the paper towel core by running the glue down both sides of the burlap strip and then tucking it inside of the core roll.  Once it had dried I cut a 6" strip of Stampin' Up! 1 1/4" burlap ribbon and glued it with Beacon glue onto the inside of the core roll to cover any raw edges.    The leaves were stamped by stamping Cajun Craze Ink onto Daffodil Delight for the yellow leaves and Mossy Meadow onto Mossy Meadow Cardstock for the Green Leaves.  The large Oak Leaf was stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto Shimmer White Cardstock and then sponged with Hello Honey, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie Ink.  After I cut the leaves out with the Leaflet Framelits, I arranged them and adhered them to the Napkin Rings with more of the Beacon Glue.  Finally after arranging the leaves, I tied a bow with linen thread on the stems of the leaves.

Here are the products I used:

  1. Love these, Tina! I have been threatening to make some the same way for 2 years now. I start saving the paper rolls about a week before Thanksgiving and don't get enough collected until around Christmas. I save the rolls until January and throw them away! :) Your creation is really pretty!
