    Ihave a couple of times … mostly ornaments to go in groupings. I made paper pumpkins one year and tree ornaments on other occassions, and I made “candles” for a bridal shower (the bride still displays them)

    I use papercrafting skills often for home decor items, but probably my favorite was an advent calendar I made for my adult daughter and her family.

    Jamie N says:

    I actually made a banner last year after seeing the superly pretty one on Dawn’s blog w/ her vintage ornaments.

    I can’t think of a time when I’ve used my papercrafting skills to make home decor, although I do have the makings to embellish some of those frame ATC type boxes that are all the rage right now. I am however really looking forward to making some banners. Another great release PTI!

    Alanna says:

    Unfortunately, I haven’t made anything crafty for home decor. I totally should though and with the help of the banner dies, I can. Thanks Nichole and gang for a great release.

    kryssi ng says:

    Yes, pretty boring, just embellishing picture frames and such… would love to expand it for the holiday season after being inspired by this week’s sneak peeks!!

    Lisa G says:

    I like to take artist canvas, paint it and then add pictures, die cuts and stamped images. I also like to make plates and cups to serve goodies I make.

    Mary M. says:

    I’ve never set out to use my papercrafting skills for home decor. I have raided my adhesive stash to align pictures in frames. There are times where my supplies come in handy for things around the house.

    Laura S says:

    Yes. Wraps for flameless pillar candles.

  • 10
    Babies- Beth says:

    Hmm… only ribbons to make lots of bows around the house, lol! I just bought a Christmas Cricut cartridge that has a 3-D house. I am hoping the banner dies will make them gingerbread houses, lol!!!

    Cathy Weber says:

    I haven’t used PTI to make any home decor items yet, but as you release things every month I am certain to make something in the very near future. A decorative calendar pops into my head right now. Thanks for the chance to win such a wonderful prize.

  • 12
    Tasha says:

    Once so far. I made a piece for my bedroom, the artwork I could find to match my colors weren’t my style. All in all I’m very happy with it and can’t wait until we redo my living room so I can make something to go in there.

  • 13
    Allene F. says:

    I have only made one home decor item before in a stamp class. I learned about to stamp on a candle. I tend to stick with cards, gifts, and scrapbooking. I would love to learn more and play more with creating home decor items.

  • 14
    Joyce says:

    I have. I made a birdhouse wall hanging that holds keys. I’ve done puzzle swaps so I have muptiple artists displayed in one piece. I’ve altered dress forms. I have a fall candle on my chicken crate that was altered with fabric, paper and ribbon. Altering is one of my favorite crafts.

  • 23
    Jamie Nania says:

  • 25
    Lindsey Martins says:

    I’ve used my papercrafting supplies to decorate pictures frams, and cover wooden letters (initials for a nursery), but that’s about it. Excited for the release tonight!

  • 26

    I haven’t yet, but I have plans to decorate the closet doors in my craft room. Well I guess they would just be the storage cabinet. Anyway, I’m mulling it over in my mind.

  • 29

  • 33

  • 34
    Laurie Hunt says:

    We were trying to sell me husbands house after we were married and I made a couple of pieces of wall art for that. I am wanting to try some different things that have been floating in my head for a while though.

  • 35
    Jennifer Delaurier says:

    I have made a banner before, for our last Christmas to hang on our mantle. That is why I am so excited to see a banner set, but with the large dies so that I can make more for many different occasions with such ease! Thank you so much for all the inspiration and the chance to win!

  • 36
    Kara says:

    I’ve made some cute blocks that say “be thankful” and have plans to do many others, but they might be made instead on banners – after they come in my mail next week 🙂

    Oh yes! I especially like making paper bouquets! My next favorite is magnetic notepads for the fridge!

  • 41
    Amy Smith says:

    I have made several things before, chiefly etched glass. I use stamps to emboss on the glass, then use etching cream. After the cream has worked, I wash it off and peel off the embossing. Makes beautiful candle holders. Lately I have been trying things with vinyl and my Cricut. And this Thanksgiving I want to do place cards and table decorations. I also plan to cut paper leaves out of PTI’s patterned paper and put them around a grapevine wreath for a door decoration.

  • 42
    Amy Everson says:

    I have made ornaments, wall art from vinyl, and a couple of banners. I really love using vinyl for walls and windows.

  • 45
    Stephanie S. says:

    I am always making ornaments for christmas and also altering bird houses to use for the seasons. I even took a metal star and altered for my house.

  • 46
    Kimberli Sarsfield says:

    I made a photo frame type accent to sit on a shelf in our living room. It makes the picture and embellished mat so much more special since I know I did it and I can appreciate it everyday in my house instead of giving it away:)

  • 47
    Colleen C. says:

    I made some great custom photo mats for a framed photo. Does that count as home decor? Great release this month, but I say that every month!

  • 48
    Alyssa S says:

    Not so much…I keep meaning to make some magnets, a template to hold my pens and such, picture frames, etc. I always end up giving them away or making the goodies into cards. One of these days though…

  • 49
    Donelle u says:

    I have made a tray for my mom with pictures of our kids on it and I have made wall hangings for both my husband and father in law with quoates pictures and decorations. I would love to do more. I have also made decorated picture frames for friends.

  • 50
    Jamie Greene says:

    YES!! I have made some frames. I am planning on making pictures for my daughters room soon as well.

  • 51
    Kathy H says:

    Hahaha, this is a funny question because I’ve been “making home decor” since I was a kid…and my mom would proudly display the wall art for awhile! Recently I’ve made picture frames for our guest bedroom. I didn’t have the money to buy frames so I used my digital cutter to cut out frames for 8×10 pictures I took of different architecture.

  • 52
    Caren B says:

    I’ve covered block letters in paper for my craft room and just made ‘NOEL’ letters to decorate for Christmas

  • 53
    Heidi says:

    I once used my paper crafting skills to try and make “art” to hang in my home. I made a Christmas shadow box with punches and paper. It didn’t turn out as I had hoped so I gave it away to a friend. I learned that I am much better at making cards than I am at working on any 3 dimensional projects.

  • 54
    Judi Rose says:

    I have made paper ornaments for Christmas and paper wreaths.

  • 55
    Leigh Ann says:

    Sometimes I like to use my paper crafts supplies for things I get to keep…like making picture frames or decorating a corkboard or making magnets for my refrigerator “art gallery” 🙂

  • 56
    Daniela says:

    Oh, yes. I made several photo frames, holiday decor, ornaments, wreaths….

  • 57
    Sandy Kay says:

    I’ve made Christmas ornaments and some little totes to sit around to put things in – if that counts!
    Fabulous release as always!

  • 58

    I can honestly say that I have never made anything from paper for home decor. Now, if you want to count my little table settings for Thanksgiving THIS year, then I guess I have…..but, that is all that I have ever made to decorate my home. I guess I need to get on the ball, huh?

  • 59

    Yes, I have created some picture frames, framed scrapbook pages and even garland for our tree one year. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 60
    Kristen says:

    Yes. I made the cute little butterfly shadow boxes when those were the rage a couple years ago. And I also filled a vintage paper tray with hundreds of tiny pictures for a gift for my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. Now I want to make one for my home, but haven’t finished it…

  • 61

    My shining moment in home decor items was making an advent calendar for christmas last year. It was a lot of fun and came out nice but the best part was how much the kids LOVED it and now look forward to bringing it out again 🙂

  • 62
    Amber Goble says:

    I’ve made picture frames and door hangers. So easy to make home decor with crafty goodies.

  • 63
    Allyson says:

    I haven’t done too much home decorating with my paper crafting skills – but I want to now after seeing all these fun banners and such! I have, however, used my paper crafting skills to make baby frames, decorating the matting and the frame to give as a gift. I am definitely more inspired to try after having found the Papertrey design team! 😉 Thanks for the chance to win all these great products. I hope I win!!!!

  • 64
    Barb S says:

    Oh yes, even as a kid I made lampshades of paper decorated with homemade stamped images. Now, as an adult, I use my wonderful stamps to decorate pillow covers, make luminaria, and wall hangings. I even have paper valences in my dining room!

  • 65
    Linda w says:

    I have to say I am pretty much stuck on creating greeting cards. Although I have created many Christmas ornaments utilizing paper crafts. Could that be considered home decor? You never know though when I just might try my hand at the new paper decor things.

    stamp on…

  • 66
    Kathy W says:

    No, I have never used my papercrafting skills to create a home decor project for MY home. However, I made several themed houses using the PTI template last year that I gave as gifts to friends and family, and I am constantly using my papercrafting know-how in my kindergarten classroom on bulletin boards and special thank you’s for my parent volunteers.

  • 67
    Angie Reedy says:

    I’ve love using papercrafting for home decor. i’ve made paper owls that I framed, and i’ve also made frames out of paper for photos!

    love papertrey!!

  • 68
    Sande says:

    I have made a bunch of fun home decor items with stamping/papercrafting supplies. I change out the wreaths on my craft room doors each season with different paper crafting decorations. I made a great advent calendar that we enjoy year after year. I have made name frames that are a hit with the kids. I love making things that we can enjoy throughout the house and throughout the seasons! Thanks for giving us the chance to share our ideas, learn from one another, and find terrific quality supplies!

  • 69
    C Stephens says:

    I have used my crafting to make gifts for others like journals, decorated boxes and the like. I think this release is wonderful and I look forward to all the great products!

  • 70
    Carole kerr says:

    One year I made all the table decorations using paper and stamps!! My family loved it and thought it made Our holiday together more homey. I’m dying to get my hands on the banner dies!
    Thanks for such a great release.

    Maryanne Degiorgio says:

    I love making 3D stuff for Xmas and Birthday parties and making boxes for gifts. The banners would be terrific for any number of parties.

  • 72
    Anne S says:

    I’ve decorated picture frames that come in kits, but that’s about it. I pretty much stick to cards and scrapbooking. Can’t wait for the release!

  • 73
    Monica L says:

    No but I plan to make placecards for Thanksgiving this year using Places Please stamp set and die.

  • 74
    Maeghan M. says:

    I’ve definitely used my papercrafting skills for other things… I’ve covered up cute little wooden frames and metal recipe card boxes, and I’ve made a few signs here and there! Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful talent!

  • 75
    Gabriela says:

    All the time…. I made a vinyl art piece for the top of my staircase, I added vinyl to glasses for a Halloween Party, I have made banners for birthday parties, I even added some Cricut cuts to a cake. I love incorporating my “skills” into my home decor. Thank you for the chance to win!

  • 76
    Miki says:

    I just made a Halloween banner for our mantle a few weeks ago! I plan on making another one for Christmas. Hopefully the dies won’t sell out before I get mine!

  • 77
    Michelle N says:

    A few years ago I made a family of chip board gingerbread men tied together in a row with ribbon as a christmas decoration. I decorated them with individual papers and put each person’s name on them. they were so cute I leave them up all year!

  • 78
    Jen Barkdull says:

    I haven’t made anything for myself, but I have used them to make Christmas decorations, like decorated letters and words, for family and friends.

  • 79
    Kristin says:

    Yes!! Absolutely YES! Every Christmas, of course. But most recently was my daughter’s 4th birthday. We did Jessie from Toy Story. I did the Birthday Banner, a Jessie “round up” where I took photos of all the kids who were coming (b&w) and put “Wanted” on them. Dressed my dh up in an old Western shirt and bandana, son’s cowboy hat and play gun and put “Outlaw” on his pic. These were on the doors at the girls’ eye level. Then, I had little tins (like kids used to take their lunch in back in the 1800s) and we had a bandana cut up and I did tags with Jessie/Old West kinda stuff on the handle, and filled them with jelly beans and little toys. SOOOO FUN and such a hit. (and I left her birthday banner up for THREE weeks!!)

  • 80
    Jess Kruegel says:

    I actually just started making decor items last yr. I mainly have papertrey to thank for that, with all of the inspiring projects you show on your blog. for the most part, i like to make framed art pieces and i made a bunch of ornaments last yr. im super excited to work with these new banner dies and stamps to make some awesome decor items this year.

    Yes. I have made a Christmas Tree by using papers, ribbons, and silver Kisses chocolates. I still have it and it will be in my dining room this year again. Thank you so much for the chance.

  • 85
    Michele L. says:

    WOW! It’s ironic you asked that question, because I just finished a shadow box today. I’ve been meaning to make this for years and actually sat down did it today.
    I decorated a shadow box, containing a letter my grandfather gave me along with Monetary bills- “escudos”. It was the currency in Portugal before the Euro. It’s a nice memory of him and my childhood summers!

  • 86

    I’ve made wooden blocks and decorated picture frames, but that’s about it. Nothing too fancy…can’t wait for the banner collection to change that though!

  • 87
    Ngan R. says:

    I have used my crafting skills to make wreaths out of paper and ribbon and other embellishments. I’ve also made plenty of Christmas tree decorations and still have them for use every year. Perhaps I’ll make a banner and wrap around my tree this year with all those dies you have out now!

  • 88
    Anita Farrell says:

    But of course. Last year I made a replica of my front door, complete with window panes and sidelights. Then I put a cute couch and rug from On My Couch peeking through the windows. I used the sentiment there’s no place like home for the holidays and then framed the piece. It was a great addition to my kitchen Christmas decor.

  • 89
    Wendy says:

    For Halloween this year I made a banner, door hanger and paper flower display. I’ve also decorated a picture frame. I’m looking forward to making lots for Thanksgiving and
    Christmas!

    I haven’t made any home decor, but that’s something I hope to rectify with this month’s release – I have images of banners all around my home this Christmas!

  • 91

  • 95
    Lee Cockrum says:

    Not really! Perhaps some slight embellishment to photo frames, that is about it. But I do really love all of the banner ideas that I have seen during this release.

  • 96
    Dana says:

    I just used my supplies to make a snowman diorama inside of a shadowbox frame. It is only 4×4, but I used the Papertrey tree die and chartreuse felt and vintage red buttons in it! It’s very cute for a first try at a diorama. I see more in my future!

  • 97
    Emily Keaton says:

    Yes!! I’ve made papercrafted art to frame for the wall in my bedroom and altered things like a small memo board to use in my kitchen. I’ve even used my papercrafting skills to make board games–although I guess that’s not technically “home decor”!! BTW–fabulous release this month 🙂

  • 98
    Denise says:

    YES! I totally have made home decor projects! One of my favorite is a Frame I made for Halloween…every year I add my kids’ pictures in their costumes! Here is the blog post with a crackle paint tutorial I did on the frame…

  • 108
    Shasta says:

    I have only made a few home decor pieces, flowers and such, but can definitly see more in the future with those banners!!

  • 109
    Lauren says:

    Making my own home decor is something that’s very new to me. Only recently did I make my first attempt. I basically made framed art with patterned paper, stamps and die cuts. One is of our last initial, embellished with flourishes and a bow. It came out much cuter than I expected. So I will definitely come up with other ideas. Those big banners sure would come in handy!! 😉

  • 110
    Karli says:

    I’ve used my papercrafting supplies to make lots of home decor things for my home & as gifts for family & friends. The usual suspects- frames, canvas art with scrapbook pages, decorated letters, banners, & holiday decorations.

  • 111
    ladybugg61 says:

    Relatively new to cardmaking, I’ve never ventured into home decor – yet! Those lovely Banner Dies/Stamp Sets definitely make me want to go out on a limb and give it a try real soon!

  • 112

  • 118
    Sheryl says:

    When I first began stamping a few years ago, I stamped a Bible verse (John 3:16) on card stock and stamped roses and leaves around it, then matted and framed it. My stamping has improved since then, but I am still happy with the results!

  • 119
    Vanessa G says:

    I made a banner for Halloween. Having dies would have made the whole project a lot easier!! I had considered a Thanksgiving project but held off cause I didn’t want to cut them out. I can start planning one now.

  • 123
    Becky K. says:

    Hmm, papercrafting not so much yet (don’t have enough space to decorate!). I’ve used my Silhouette to etch glass coasters though!

  • 124
    Laura Boyd says:

    Just a few things, some picture frames, Ikea mirrors, and some boxes. I think this is my favorite release this year. I can’t wait to get some of the new goodies. Too bad my check book can’t handle all I want!

  • 138
    Amy G. says:

    Well… I’ve had lots of good intentions to make home decor. Most of those haven’t happened yet, but the ideas are there when the notion or opportunity strikes. 😉 The only home decor projects I’ve actually made are the “dry erase” picture frames that I’ve made as gifts. They were one of the first projects I discovered here on Nicole’s blog. They are always a big hit!

  • 139
    Kim H. says:

    I haven’t used papercrafts for my home decor — but I think this month’s releases may change that! Can’t wait to begin filling my shopping cart –

    Michelle Balletti says:

    Home Decor….No not really…but I totally used a bunch of your stuff when I threw my own baby shower….yes, a lil control-freakish but heh…I used Baby Blessings and Men of Life including the fab tutorial you did on a 3d boat (which unfortunately didn’t make the cut (after I already did 50 hulls)(was going to attach them to the favor box) oh well…my stuff was a hit (at least to me and I still need to e-mail the fab creator with my invites I did to show her how much I appreciated her work!! but on home decor, sorry I degressed, no not yet!!

  • 141

    I have created several things for home decor from my papercrafting stash. Recently I made a fall wreath made with the great leaves dies here at PTI for my mother-in-law and myself.

Love all the great inspiration we get monthly.

  • 144
    Mila Ayers says:

    I have made several items, but my favorite is a framed collage of a recent mission trip to Africa. It hangs next to our front door. I included a couple of pictures, some awesome African-looking papers, and some fibers and memorabilia I brought back from Afica.

  • 145

    I LOVE to make banners and I try to do so for all of my kid’s birthdays, baby showers, and wedding showers. The most special banner I made was for my son, Ethan. He was just 4 when he died last year of cancer, but his banner from his 4th birthday hangs proudly in his brother’s room. It says “Yee Haw” and when he saw it at his birthday he pointed to it and told our family friend, “Look, it says Happy Birthday Ethan!” It was soo cute. I used it again just yesterday at my youngest boy’s 1 year old birthday party! I can’t wait to get the new banner set and all of the coordinating dies!

  • 146
    Deena says:

    I have never created ant home decor item with my paper crafting skills, however I will definitely be changing that old habit as soon as I get my hands on those gorgeous new banner dies!!

    I have made a few home decor items. Paper pinecones for my Christmas tree, as well as other Christmas decorations. Currently working on a few things for Thanksgiving.
    I have also done some really cool art pieces for my brother using art canvas, acrylic paints and stamps. I used different types of papers, sheet music, book print and grunge paper, to make roses for them.

  • 155
    Karen says:

    I have used my papercrafting a couple of time for home decor. One I used was stamping a design on tissue paper and adhering it to a candle to make it decorative. Another was I stamped on picture frames. Would like to do more when I have the opportunity.

  • 156
    Shirlann says:

    When I have to take an appetizer to a friends house I usually make a hot dip and chips. I make a bowl with a paper lunch bag, by scrunching and rolling down the top, add a raffia bow around the bottom rim with the recipe printed on a tag, line the bag with waxed paper, and add the chips!
    Recipe books are also my favorite paper crafting deco item….I display all that goodness on a stand for all to see!

    I just created a shadow box for my sons nursery. I plan to do more but so far that is it.

  • 164
    Wendy Gilbertson says:

    When I was about 13 years old I thought I should have some wall paper on my bedroom walls, but we couldn’t afford wallpaper. So I cut out these really basic flower shapes out of construction paper and drew flower centers in them and taped them to my wall. I connected them with satin ribbon that my mom had in her sewing basket. It looked really cool and I was SO proud of myself.

  • 165
    kathyl says:

    I’ve used my paper crafting to make a few ornaments for my Halloween and Christmas trees. I also made a plaque to hang Santa’s door key since we don’t have a chimney 🙂 I have several more things on my to do list, just need to find some time!

  • 176
    Mel Tallman says:

    Yes I have. My husband thought I was nuts, but we needed a towel rack for the kids bathroom. When I told him I was going to do he didn’t hide his disbelief very well. When it was all done he asked me to make one for our bathroom. Best compliment ever!

  • 177

    I have made two things for home decor. One was a wreath of stamped leaves and the other was various flower punches that I attached to painted twings to create a floral arrangement.

  • 180
    Stacy says:

    My favorite home decor items I have made are framed wall art for each of my daughters. I selected colors and images that match the colors and themes of their nurseries, and pieced them together to go with other items from their rooms. The results were two beautiful wall hangings that I look at every day when I am in their rooms. I love that I was able to put my love into something that hangs on their walls, and that they can point to it and say, “Mommy made that for me!” I also recently made one for my best friend’s new baby boy.

  • 181
    Tami Grandi says:

  • 194

  • 196

    sadly, i haven’t really used my papercrafting skills to make too many home decor items. i recently altered a tin that could be used as a home decor item, though and i have made wrapped candles….

  • 197
    Donna O. says:

    I have made wreaths with fabric or paper and then another favorite has been ornaments, especially this time of year.

  • 198
    Deanna Jean says:

    I have used them to make ornaments for the tree. In the past I have not been able to do much because I was mainly a scrapbooker and just didn’t have the right supplies. This year is going to be so fun. Not only am I going to decorate..this year I’m able to make homemade Christmas gifts as well. Let the fun begin!

  • 199
    TammyRN says:

    I made several of the Home Made houses last Christmas. I guess that would be the closest thing to “home decor” I’ve made. I’m mostly a card and gift package maker.

  • 200
    Michelle says:

    I have not used papercrafting to make home decor item before but after looking at this month’s release I most certainly believe there is a first time for everything! Why not start now:)

    No…but that could change with this release 🙂

  • 203

  • 209
    Isabel Z says:

    I made a birthday banner for my youngest and I sure could have used the dies that are being released tonight. I cut out each triangle by hand as well as the matting and it took forever. It was worth the work, because she loved it. I said that I would never make another one but now PTI has made it easy so banners here I come!!!

  • 210
    Tanya says:

    I made some pictures mats for all my pictures in the living room. It looked so much better having it all match the paint in there.

    I have seasonal decorations that I’ve cut with my Cricut and hung from our kitchen light, but that’s about all from paper. I used to make a lot of fabric home decor projects though.

  • 214
    Patty Chalas says:

    Marie L says:

    I can’t say I really have. I did make the little house using the HOME MADE set. I love it and it stands in the family room. I also made a little box out of match boxes. I don’t know if you really can call that home decor.

    Can’t wait for tonights release.

  • 219
    Elizabeth Beasterfield says:

    The only thing I’ve made that might qualify as home decor is I decorated a customize your own travel coffee mug from Starbucks with my scrapbooking stamps and cardstock – it was fun, but I’d really love to do more. UBER excited about the banners in this release!!

  • 227
    Carol J. says:

    Just recently I have made two banners. The first banner I made was for my granddaughter’s 2nd birthday. I used the nestabilities scalloped circle as my base. I used sheer ribbon to connect each scalloped circle. It was definitely the finishing touch. As the DT says:”Swoon”. The theme was curious George so I used primary colors.
    Last month my newesst grandaughter was christened. I made a banner that read: “God Bless Lilly.”
    My sister suggested that I keep the banner for when she makes her first communion. I thought that was a great suggestion. However now that I have seen these new ideas, I am going to embellish the original banner with some new background layers.

  • 228
    Zena B. says:

    Well, I’ve tried stenciling but failed miserably at it. I think I put on too much paint (should have been dabbing) so that my images were not crisp and clean. Made a terrible mess trying to clean it up and haven’t tried that project again since.

  • 229
    Vera Yates says:

    I used my papercrafting skills to make a few ornaments before. With this new releases I’ll be so tempted to try to make more. Thank you so much for the chance. I would be so grateful if I can win these amazing releases. Thank you so much for the chance.

  • 230

  • 231
    Fritz says:

    Many times. I’ve made decorative plates and Christmas ornaments. I stamped the walls in my bathroom with a baroque border and, my favorite thing, wall art with the word “HOPE” that I have in my bedroom. I made it shortly after my divorce and it continues to remind me to stay hopeful.

  • 232
    Diana says:

    I made Christmas tree ornaments one year (medallion type) but nothing else that I can remember. Though I do consider the mini scrapbooks that I make home decor. I display them throughout the house and people seem to enjoy them – especially my grandsons who love looking at themselves!

  • 233

    I always use my paper crafting supplies for my kids birthday parties … from invitations, decorations (like banners and centerpieces), cupcake or cake toppers, games, pinata, gift bags and thank you cards … i like how I can personalize them and don’t look store bought at all … it’s my labor of love =D

    I’ve wall hangings, ornaments, decorated frames, paper boxes and mirrors. My favorite is a box that we keep our numerous remote controls in. I made it out of 4 CD jewel cases and lots of paper crafting supplies and photos.

    Sherrie T says:

    Yes! Definitely!! My girls and I love to make seasonal items. We find that fun because, although they can be used year after year, we can also redo them very economically with the new trends or styles (or using new product that we LOVE each year). This year we love the banners but also look forward to making more ornaments and hopefully even a complete Christmas village out of paper. My girls make rooms signs for each season and I love shadow boxes too. I just love that papercrafting allows so many options that you can just let your creativity run WILD!! My adrenaline is really going tonight. Can’t wait!

    Anemone says:

    I’ve used my papercrafting a few times for home decor – mostly for Christmas items. I’ve done stamped candles several times for gifts. I’ve also done several different types of Christmas tree ornaments with papercrafting supplies.

  • 243

    I have made so many different types of papercraft home decor. My favorite things have been tissue box houses. I have made one for each season and some just for holidays like Christmas and Halloween.
    I have made several as gifts too. Last year I made a spooky Halloween one for my sister. She loves it so much it stays out year round!
    Thank you for making the most fabulous pennant dies and stamps!

  • 244
    Jan Ledman says:

    Yes, I’ve made many items but pillows and a shadow boxes come to mind mostly. I like that we can branch out and use supplies in so many different ways.

  • 245
    Michelle says:

    YES, absolutely! Most of my pictures hanging on my walls at home are all made by me…home decor!

  • 246
    Leilani says:

    One of my favorite home decors that I’ve made is a large canvas piece where I have a variety of photos, journaling and misc. embellishments. The photos and journaling are of my family. It’s a home decor I get many compliments of … and request to help my friends and family make.

  • 247

    I just got started in the “home decor” realm with some banners for my baby shower last month. I was so inspired by all of the wonderful flag/pennant banner ideas I’ve seen online that I had to made one. And then I made two more! These are also a great way to use up some smaller pieces of felt, paper, and ribbon that you’ve been saving.

  • 248
    Jennifer D says:

    I often use my scrapbooking/paper crafting supplies for home projects! I used my Silhouette machine to cut a stencil to add the words on my son’s birthday cake. Wall hangings and little framed bits of “art” are pretty common. I’ve used my foam stamps on picture frames. My adhesives and paper cutter find many uses. Sometimes I feel like I go to my craft room more often for “household” needs than for crafting!

    Thanks for a great release… and a chance to win!

    Cindy S. says:

    OH yes! I often make seasonal banners with the kids using chipboard coasters. SO looking forward to the new banner dies for this!!! We also make 12×12 artwork and hang it in frames for display. The kids love to take themed materials or color related materials to make collages for their rooms.

    mandy says:

    I’ve used papercrafting skills mostly to make decorations for the Christmas season – a framed wall hanging, and paper Christmas tree ornaments for when my oldest son was young enough for me to worry about putting breakable ornaments on our tree.

  • 253

    well, i quilt and sew…the papers i love make it easier to mix up patterns

  • 254
    Annamaria Miller says:

    I have made a few home decor items using my paper crafting skills. A very pretty fall wreath and a couple of shadow boxes. When I think home decor I don’t really think about paper crafting. That’s about to change with the new releases. My mind is full of new ideas. Thanks!

  • 255
    michelle l says:

    I guess it was more office decor – when my company moved into new offices, I altered giant paperclips for myself and several coworkers to use as photo holders on our new desks. I’m sure I’ve done some other things, too, but those were the first to come to mind!

  • 256
    Renee Lynch says:

    I can’t recall ever using papercrafting skills in decorating my home, but there is evidence of all my other little crafty skills when I look around: painting, sewing, florals…

  • 257
    Laurie G says:

    I have done a very special home decor project with paper crafting. I spelled out my granddaughter’s name with wooden letters that I decorated with paper, stamping, rub-ons and embellishments. That was such a super fun project too with wonderful memories. Thanks for reminding me.

  • 258
    lisa Garzona says:

    I bought a few 12×12 frames and made layouts that look more like art to hang in my home as well as giving them as gifts. I love personalizing them for family and friends and they love hanging them and looking at these one of a kind gift.

  • 259
    Shannon F says:

    This is the best time to bring out all the papers, embellishments, ribbon and make holiday decorations. Just finished making a few great decorations…a Christmas wreath and wooden letters with paper decoupaged onto them – what a center piece!

    Love..love…love PaperTrey Ink – thanks for the inspiration and challenge.

  • 263
    Linda W says:

    Mostly holiday things. But I have several framed Sherensnitte (I know that’s not spelled correctly) pieces and I’ve down vinyl wall art, but that’s not paper. Lots of cards and scrapbooking though.

  • 265
    Lori Campbell says:

    No, not really but I’ve seen so many great suggestions in recent weeks and months that I may have to take the plunge some time soon! I have a dozen or so empty picture frames that I bought but haven’t ever put up so it might be fun to fill some of them with paper-crafting “art”!

  • 266
    Maureen says:

    the only thing I can think of is the seating plan for my nephew’s wedding. I stamped the actually paper I used for the seating plan and added flowers…but nothing for the home…YET!!

  • 267

    I have used papercrafting before to decorate my home! I have made napkin rings, table settings, wreaths, and hanging decor for outside my home. Not only is everything beautiful but my husband “sees” where my money goes! LOL!!!

  • 268
    Becky says:

    I have crocheted items but I can’t think of any paper crafting items that I have done.

    Bean says:

    When I first discovered paper-crafting, I didn’t realize that there were so many possibilities for home decor items until I started browsing paper-crafting sites, including this one! Since then, I’ve made several home decor items, though I live in such a tiny little space that I end up giving most of them away as gifts!

  • 270
    Kristin Burge says:

    I have made several things, but my favorite is hanging up right now. It is a banner that spells out autumn. I love that I can put it up in Sept. and keep it up until Thanksgiving.

    Christine McMullin says:

    I must confess that I haven’t used my papercrafting skills to decorate my home. As much as I love papercrafting, I feel like I’m all thumbs when it comes to decorating my home. My husband has a good eye for color so I leave most of the decorating decisions up to him. But…those banner dies might just inspire me to give it a whirl.

  • 272
    Amy Main says:

    I have! My favorite was creating wonderful storage boxes (paper mache boxes), covering them with patterned paper and fancy embellishments. Using the old fashioned scissors for different edges (the paper world has changed so much). Still love them!

    So excited to here – my very 1st time!

  • 273
    Chrissy says:

    Yes, I have here and there, I’ve made an advent calendar and some Christmas decorations. I’ve also used my papercrafting supplies to decorate and embellish collage style photo frames and to make altered frame wall decor. Always trying to find a way to get my money’s worth out of my stuff (which makes it easier to justify buying more, of course!!).

  • 274
    Heather Mills says:

    I don’t think I have ever made home decor, but I have been contemplating for a while now making some kind of name “banner” for my girls’ doors to their rooms. Maybe after this release I will actually make real banners! All your releases are fabulous and I can’t wait to see all the sets in their entirety. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing creativity with us!!!

  • 275

    I made a paper flower bouquet for my Mother for Mothers Day. I added all kinds of embellishments to make flower centers and things for leaves and petals.

    Mindy says:

    I haven’t made any home decor with my craft supplies yet but I would LOVE to! I have been wanting to try making a banner for months but was intimidated where to even start. With the new banner dies, it’s going to be a breeze!

  • 281

    I have, and I have made several things … basket tags, banners and altered photo frames. I’m soooo excited to get these new banners!! I’ll be making one for every holiday now!!

  • 282
    Kristy says:

    I make a lot of boxes for gift giving and like to display many of them on my couch table. I make them into a seasonal display along with little figurines, dolls, greenery and the like. I have also made paper flowers and put them into bright ceramic vases. These were a lot of fun.

    I love this month’s new releases and can’t wait to be able to add many of them to my paper crafting collection!

  • 283
    Cheri Mosgrove says:

    I have made a couple of banners. . . one for me and one for my mom. All of the fun banner building tools have me itching to make some more though! I can see that this could be really addicting! 🙂

    I’ve made garlands/banners, framed art, covered letters. 🙂

  • 287

    I’m just starting. Let’s say definitely bitten by the bug. My first project is a shadow box wreath and it turned out pretty good. I’m already planning my banner!

  • 290

    I love it when I can incorporate some of my papercrafting supplies into my home decor, although it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like. However, the holidays are right around the corner and I have big plans to put all of my new supplies to good use! Which makes my purchases even more justified:)

    Hmmm…. I’m stamped on tiles – does that count? Other than that, nope, I haven’t made any home decor objects.

  • 292
    Linda says:

    Christmas always seems to bring out the paper crafter/decorator in me. Last year I made advent calendars for my two boys! This year, I’m going to make an awesome banner! LOL! Other holidays and special occasions are going to get banners too!

    thanks for the chance to win!

  • 295
    Sherry says:

    I have made an Advent calendar using a cookie sheet and lots of scraps. And although it isn’t paper I cut vinyl with my Cricut and have done lots of home decor that way. Can’t wait to try a banner!!

  • 296
    Roxann says:

    A dear friend taught me to stamp on tissue paper and then melt it onto a candle. They make great decorations!

  • 297

    I have made candle wraps to go around those little battery operated pillar candles…wouldn’t want my hard work to go up in flames! They made nice little gifts!

    Aussie Emma says:

    Instead of using a boring cork board to display the kids paintings and drawings etc. I got a large artist canvas, painted and decorated it. Hung it in the hall for everyone to see. Used ribbons and pretty pegs etc to display the pictures. The banners would be great to add to it, love the mums aswell by the way.

    Suzanne Daniels says:

    I most certainly have. Last year I made Christmas Trees using the polystyrene trees from Joanns and then covered them in patterned that I scalloped and used the Holiday Button Bits Stamp Set to embelish them, especially that cute gingerbread man. I made three of them, all different sizes amd evem if I say so myself, they were seriously cute.

    I love using my stamps and paper to make just about anything…. I have made a clock for my bathroom to match my decor. I stamped the images for the background and then purchased the clockworks from the local craft store. I’ve painted and stamped picture frames and made picture frames with just paper when I want to give a photo as a gift.. I’ve also used my stamps to make a custom shower curtain to match the colors in my bathroom.

    Lindsey Larsen says:

    I’ve used my papercrafting supplies to decorate the inside of picture frames,make some Christmas decorations, make some word blocks, and make a couple birthday banners, but that’s about it.

    I’ve used paper crafting for everything from decorating candles to making placemats to decorating our Christmas tree. I love finding a new use for all my supplies.
    One reason I’m so excited about the new banner die is because I’ve made banners for holidays and birthdays for years. It’ll be nice to not have to hand cut everything.

  • 319
    Barbara Axmacher says:

    Nothing too exciting. A banner for my grandson’s 1st BD and then some cute little houses that were used as place cards for a girls family reunion. The itinerary was listed inside. It still sits on my desk as a reminder of getting together w/ my family.

  • 327
    Brooke says:

    One of the things that I’ve turned my hand to is making Christmas bon bons (crackers). The store bought ones are so expensive and I love to be able to personalise them with gifts that I know the recipient will love. I have a $5 budget for each gift and obviously is needs to fit inside an empty toilet roll. Instead of jokes I do a heap of research and write down a whole heap of Christmas related facts and history. I throw in a couple of jokes for good measure. It’s something that once I made it I’ve had to continue it year after year but I do love doing it.

  • 337
    Cyndie says:

    I guess the first home decor item I ever made was as a kid in the scouts, folding those small magazines, page by page, then fanning out the pages so it would stand up. Can’t remember what it was used for, though. Nowadays my paper crafting is a bit more sophisticated. Thanks for the great release!

  • 338
    Avital says:

    Other then my paintings I don’t really do home decor. The only thing I can remember doing is putting up a Hanukkah spread on the window shelf with Dreidels, Menorah, glass beads and an embellished match box for lighting the Hanukkah candles…

    I have made a tribute to my Grandmother using her buttons that were given to me. It is in a frame using different stamps and different embellishments on 12 different dollies which are decorated separately making sure each one had a least one button. I have also decorated picture frames and several other things with templates. I love the idea of homemade around the house. I also make gifts for others and they display them in their homes.

  • 341
    Mary H. says:

    Decorated some CD’s in patterned paper and flowers, spelled out HOME in chipboard on them and hung them with ribbon in my craft room, which I still really enjoy looking at it. I’m always been interested in making homemade banners for birthdays, holidays and so forth, but it seemed too time-consuming most of the time. The ULTIMATE Banner collection is going to make it a SNAP to put together cute banners quickly. …….and I can’t WAIT!!

  • 342
    Jen Adcock says:

    I have in fact with greateror lesser degrees of success. I often decoupage my unused card making die cuts or spare stamped images onto trays and well loved bits of old furiture to breathe new life into them. Great for also getting some extra millage out of the kids bedroom furniture which unfortunately doesn’t grow with them.

  • 343
    Kris says:

    We’ve got a huge old fashioned country barn that has been decorated while raising our three kids every which way you can imagine. Fall barn parties, square dancing parties, birthday parties, graduation parties and most recently, our daughters wedding rehearsal dinner and reception. We’ve had lots of great paper crafting memories under those rafters… (give me a theme and I’m off and running)!

    All of the time! I’ve made banners, invitations, favors, and party hats for all of my kids’ birthdays. I’ve also made ornaments and Christmas wreaths and decorated picture frames, wooden blocks, and wooden letters. Cannot wait to get my hands on those banner dies!!!

    Anna (doctorfoodie) says:

    I have made a few things for my baby daughter’s room – a (diecut) butterfly mobile, a nursery door decoration with her name on it, an altered frame with a scrapbook layout inside for her wall, mats for photos. I really like doing that, and as a bonus, it’s more visible to me and others.

    Helen F. says:

    Not sure if this can be considered paper-crafts in home decor, but I have made centerpieces for the Holidays and decorated homemade food gifts for family and friends with stamps and embellies :o)

  • 356
    Terri Bills says:

    The only thing i have made that could be considered home decor was an altered frame i made for my husband for our 5th anniversary. I think he liked it. I am so excited about tonight’s release and can’t wait to see everything.

    Tammy W. says:

    I’ve made a few ornaments for decorating at Christmas but have always wanted to try making banners.

    Does woven paper star ornaments count? 😀 I’ve made lots of home decor with decorative painting, cross-stitch, sewing, that sort of thing. I can’t think of any paper-crafted ones off the top of my head. Obviously, something I need to remedy!!

    Danell H. says:

    I have made a halloween scene to put in a frame for the wall. I am currently trying to finish a paper leaf wreath that I saw on Dawn McVey’s site, really cute. Thanks so much!

  • 360
    Judy Walsh says:

    Yes, I have used my supplies to make a few things. My favorite was a shadow box type of frame that I made with my friend’s baby’s name highlighted on the little clothes hanging on real wooden hangers on a clothesline. Turned out cute. Oh, I also made a personalized sign for a friend’s laundry room in her favorite colors. I’d love to do more, I have so many ideas (and tons of inspiration from you and your awesome design team). Thanks.

  • 361
    jen shears says:

    I’ve made several banners (won’t this month’s release make THAT easier!)- frames, large letters embellished with pretty paper, etc! I love when my hobbies overlap!!! 🙂 Thanks for all the inspiration & fun (as always)!!

    I have done some crafting for home decor, just not paper crafting. I hope to do an advent calendar and some other things this year. 🙂

  • 364
    Jennifer H. says:

    I make Christmas ornaments every year for a local nursing home. I never get tired of seeing people’s face light up when they receive a handmade ornament. It makes them feel like someone remembered them even when they are away from their families.

    I’ve made garlands for the Holidays from punched circle tags and buttons a la Pine. Making fabric pennant flags was going to be an upcoming craft – but now I might have to do paper!!!

  • 367
    Julie S says:

    I’ve made seasonal home decor things like a cute little Christmas Advent Calendar, Christmas tree ornaments, Birthday banners when my boys were young…nothing quite like the ones possible with PTI’s November release though! Such fun!

  • 371
    Bernadette M. says:

    I have made tile coasters, which I guess can qualify as functional home decor. I have also made a birthday banner using my Cricut, but nothing as fancy and elaborate as the banners created by the DT team. I will definitely try to create a banner for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.

  • 372
    DarC says:

    I’ve made some small paper embellies to add color to items I use daily. It’s a bit of color and whimsy that gives me an inner “giggle”. I added a embellishment to the coffee filter holder so that my husband would get a laugh too. He saw it and told me he really liked it; it was a pleasant surprise for me!

  • 373

    So many things! Banners, mini books, decorations for so many holidays, advent calendars, wreaths, you name it! I love paper crafting to decorate my home!! Thanks so much for a chance to win!!!

  • 374
    Cindy Lee says:

    I make a lot of Holiday decor, but the last thing I really went all out for was my daughters graduation party. Making banners, centerpieces, cake decorations and gifts! I had a blast crafting and I was told the room looked great! (And it was all on a low budget!)

  • 375
    leanne says:

    I’ve made a few different things. I’ve stamped on coasters and candles. I’ve made boxes to keep my crafting supplies in. I also made a calendar for my mom every year, which she keeps on her fridge. I’ve never attempted a banner, but I’m so excited to try one!!

  • 376
    Anna Was says:

    I have made ornaments, a Jesse tree, picture frames and various other small projects. The release this month of the banners will certainly add something new for me to papercraft! Can’t wait…everyone at PTI continue to amaze me every month!

  • 377
    JoAnna says:

    I have made art accents for my room. I love creating things and am especially excited about this release to add more things got my room and friends.

  • 378
    MJ says:

    I guess rub-ons are considered papercrafting supplies, right? I had bought a pack of rub-ons and a ceramic pitcher and tried to copy a tutorial from some website/blog. It was meant as a Mother’s Day present. I liked how it turned out, but being the perfectionist that I am, I wasn’t too comfortable giving it as a present. So it currently sits on my console table collecting dust, loose change, and other knick-knacks.

  • 379
    toni1 says:

    I just made an advent box and a banner for Christmas. My favorite project this year was a fall wreath. After cards home decor projects are my favorite. I’m so excited about the new banner dies and can’t wait to use them. Thanks for all the great product.

    Yes, and hot glue is amazing! I’ve made a few things: curtains, pillow cases but my fav was a pair of mini lamp shades that I based off of a card that I had made but I will always return to my first love of papercrafting and stamping!

  • 385
    Deborah S says:

    I made napkin rings and coordinating place cards last Thanksgiving and plan to do so again this year. I’ve also made seasonal wraps for the bulb ‘candle’ bases on the chandelier in my dining room. I’m seeing gorgeous banners in my future decorating too!

  • 386
    Bree Jerome says:

    I’ve created frames using paper and embellishments but am very, very excited to try making a banner. I’m sure it will be addicting and I’ll find myself creating one for every season! I love the entire release!! Thank you!!!

  • 387

    oh my, yes!! I LOVE to use my paper crafting supplies for home decor items. I’ve made everything from decorated and/or stamped candles and frames to old windows turned into chore charts, frames for photos, and most recently a place to hand wet hats and mittens- all with my paper crafting supplies. I’ve made canvases, banners, and also decorated an old piece that was once used to display little trinkets and a little chest I found at Goodwill. I’ve made lots and lots of seasonal items to display around my home. I rarely ever buy new decor pieces for my home. I mostly make what I want out of my paper crafting supplies or alter something that I can find at a flea market or thrift store. It’s a fabulously inexpensive way to create one of a kind pieces for your home.
    This is a fabulous release!! I really think you have outdone yourselves this time!

  • 388
    Jessica says:

    My very first attempt of creating home decor with paper crafting was for my son’s first birthday (almost 5 years ago!). I was new to paper crafting, but I wanted something unique, so I was inspired to create my own decorations. I made a simple banner and centerpieces. Looking back, the things I made were so simple compared to how my skills have evolved over time, but I will always treasure what I made and how it made his first birthday so special.

    Karen Lazar says:

    Where do I begin? I have made candle rings, canvases, picture frames, banners, chalkboards, quilt hangings, and Christmas ornaments. All your products make adding cool crafty things to my home so much fun! My favorite thing I have ever made is a “Be Well” banner I made for my dad when he had open heart surgery. He hung it in his hospital room as well as in their family room when he came home. I would just flip if I win this release!

  • 396

I’m really excited at the possibilities of the large banner dies for home decor and think they will make great gifts!

    Jan S says:

    two places to post tonight, so I am posting in both spots–
    I have always been able to use my “stash” to make things for gifts and for my own home. I love to make handmade gifts to give to friends and family, and I have always decorated for the holidays, with decoupaged items, frames, wreaths, ornaments, etc. This month’s release will help to make this so much easier!! Thanks you all so much for all of your creativity and all of the small touches that you have included to make it so much easier for us to use and coordinate your products! Great job this month!!

    Mary Eason says:

    Not often. I’ve framed a few LOs for a wall display, made decorations for parties, altered containers for desk storage, but that’s about it.

  • 401

    I have used my papercrafting supplies to make picture frames! It’s so much fun! I’d love to try to make other home decor items in the future!

  • 402

    I love to use my stamps and decorate candles with the tissue paper technique and then make a matching wrap and tag…makes great Xmas gifts!

  • 403
    LaurieJ says:

    Unfortunately, the only thing that I have tried is creating magnets for the refrigerator using PTI dies and felt. It was so easy and fun! I really SHOULD try something more, but I definitely keep busy with my card making. Thank you for another beautiful release and all the fab inspiration.

  • 404
    Louise says:

  • 407
    Becky P. says:

    I have made scrapbook pages on canvas for my parents walls. I have made a framed collage for my parents as well. A couple of years ago, I made an advent calendar. I have created banners for my son’s room, but nothing as great as I could make with the new banner set and accessories. I just cannot wait to see what everyone will come up with. Houses are really going to be decked out this year!

  • 408
    Chris L. says:

    Mostly I have used my papercrafting supplies to make birthday party decorations–posters, party favors, that kind of thing. But based on all the inspiration this month, I think I might be broadening my horizons!

    Thanks for a great month!

    This is only my second release since discovering PTI less than two months ago. I love this new release and finding myself addicted to PTI! Thank you for sharing your creativity.

    I purchased some glass frames from the $ Store and stamp new ‘insides’ for them. I’ve made holiday ones and all occasion ones. Given them to family, friends and even included them in gift baskets for the high school auction. Love the November release — so excited!

  • 422
    Deb C says:

  • 425
    Connie F. says:

    I have used my papercrafting supplies to decorate candles, picture frames, Christmas ornaments and center pieces, for Halloween, I covered wooden “Spooky” letters with paper, diecuts, ribbon, etc. I love the idea of party & Holiday banners, but have never made one—maybe now that PTI has made it so easy, I will finally try it! Thanks so much for the chance to win—I’m keeping my fingers crossed =)

  • 426

  • 427
    MichelleLL says:

    I recently made a Sweet 16 banner for my daughter with the Beautiful Blooms patterned papers, a bit of pleated crepe paper and some glittered clothespins! It is also our tradition to make each child a birthday crown (boys and girls!)so I made a coordinating crown to match, which made for some very cute photos!

    Other than helping kids with projects, home decorating for holidays and help with wedding invites, not much other “home decor” so far. But, I am always open to the possibility, and your site is a great inspiration! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 431

    Yes,I have! I’ve used my stamps to stamp a border on the walls in our master bath, and I’ve made a few framed seasonal decor items. I currently have a Thanksgiving frame out that I created with the leaves dies and stamps.

  • 439
    Teresa says:

  • 443
    stampyblock says:

    I love this question! Yes, I have made several things but the one that I am the most proud of is the painting that hangs over our bed. I loved this pattern paper from Basic Grey several years ago and thought if I could have it in an extra large size, it would be great wall art……so I grabbed a large carvas we had in storage, the paint we used for the walls and painted it to match the pattern paper. I know no paper was used in my finished art but my pattern paper was my inspiration and my paper craft experience gave me the courage. Love it and love everything I have seen so far this month! Probably my favorite release ever!

  • 444
    Melissa D. says:

    I don’t recall making anything for my home with paper. I have been planning on making a banner for seasons and holidays but haven’t yet gotten to it. The new dies would make this task so much easier.

  • 451
    Darlene says:

    I definetly use my supplies to repurpose items almost monthly. It is a passion of mine to be able to make something for my home versus purchasing because it is of my design and means more to us as a family. i just made a ‘gratitude’ board for this week to celebrate Thanksgiving. Excited to be able to see the Nov release in one place – it always amazes me each month..i don’t think it can get better and then you outdo the previous month. This looks like a winner for sure!

  • 452

    I have made various home decor items using my papercrafting skills. The most recent thing I made was a tissue box cover that I learned from a tutorial over at SCS. I used the Peace Be Still dies and stamp set to decorate it. It is very pretty, if I say so myself.

  • 456
    Alyssa Pappas says:

    Oh yeah, lots of picture frame decorations, some cute little holiday signs, table decor, etc. I’d love to do more though, since my family really appreciates it, which I certainly love! Loved the release days and I can’t wait to see the stamp sets in full!

  • 457

    I made paper snowflakes to hang on a centerpiece for my table. It was beautiful and I have put it on my dining room table for the last couple of years. I also have a few ornaments that I hang on the tree every year. Wonder what I will make this year? Maybe a new banner when I win the awesome giveaway!

    I used the papertrey buttons to make a Christmas tree and wreath last year.

I’ve embellished picture frames, decorated candles, displayed scrapbook layouts on my walls, created christmas ornaments, made decoartions for my boys’ birthday parties, covered birdhouses, etched plates and glasses.

    I made a banner for my niece for her 2nd birthday. I used a Sizzix die to cut out fabric. I embellished it with beads, ribbon and chipboard – it turned out so cute! It took a while to make it, which, is why I’m so excited for PTI’s new banner dies!

  • 529

    Great release!!!!

  • 538
    Amber R. says:

    Hmmm, I’ve used papercrafting supplies to decorate picture frames and to embellish wall decals to make them fit my color scheme. Also, last year, PTI’s HomeMade houses were made to complement the exterior of friend’s houses as hostess gifts at the holidays, does that count? With great releases like this one, we can expect to all increase our creativity into home decor!

  • 539
    Lori Y says:

    I have created a couple of princesses with the help of my Cricut for my daughter’s room decor. And I’m currently working on an Artist Tray for our Living Room. Last year I made a few of the houses and decorated them with the Homemade stamp set, but my daughter decided they worked better for her dolls and I lost them. So excited for this release!

  • 540
    Rochelle C. says:

    No, I never made a home decor project unless you count scrapbook pages that I framed and hung. Thanks for a chance to win.

  • 544

    I use my craftiness to decorate anything that’s a little too “blah” around the house. I love to dress up our old refrigerator (we live in a rental) with cute magnets and notepads. Any extra bit of sunshine helps in a drab kitchen! I can’t wait for tonight’s release. This month’s stamps and other releases are soooo amazing. Thanks to the entire DT for a super inspiring week!

  • 545
    Lisa B. says:

  • 547
    Carla says:

    Home Decor with paper crafting isn’t something that I typically do but I did on one occasion. For my son’s first birthday, i made a banner of pictures from birth to 1. It was fun, and I still have it 3 years later. I’ve considered making decor for my boys room, but have never bitten the bullet.

  • 548
    Trish says:

    I love being able to make home decor with my papercrafting goodies. I’ve made a bunch of stuff over the years but most recently I made a 12×12 canvas with a gorgeous picture of my hubby and daughter.

  • 549
    Jenny J. says:

    I’ve made collages with re-purposed frames and 12X12 canvases. Last year, I made my Mom’s Mother’s Day gift from a frame I painted white, took watercolor paper I distressed with a little water & blue chalk and stamped some Bluebonnets. She loved it! And it still hangs in her kitchen.

    The new releases will so enhance my collages!

  • 550

  • 552

    No, I just covered envelopes with paper and glued them together & put them on the refrigerator to put receipts and coupons in. I am looking forward to making some banners, tho.
    Thanks for the wonderful ideas.

  • 553

    Yes, all the time…picture frames, layouts to hang on the wall, holiday decorations. My fave was a Thanksgiving project a couple years ago. We made placemats for the boys, where they used their hands to make turkeys. So fun!!! Excited for the release!!

  • 554
    Elizabeth K says:

    I’ve used banners in our family to welcome

  • 561
    Jamie Nania says:

    Yes, I made a banner for Valentine’s day this year and used the PTI patterned paper for it and my Cricut to cute the letters. I have lots of ideas in my head for those large-scale banners as well!

  • 562
    Kellie says:

    I am always thinking of ways to use my supplies. I used my goodies last year to make an Advent Tree. I made sour cream containers filled with treats for the kids and hung them on a “kitchen” tree. It sits on the counter and as is they need any more reason to get excited it adds another element of fun. If anything sits still long enough I will cover it in paper and decorate it!

  • 563

  • 566

    I have decorated a canvas to put pictures on it…even made it so I can change things out for the seasons. Great release!

  • 567
    April C. says:

    Only a few times and the things I made ended up in other people’s homes, lol! I made a wedding banner for my daughter – it’s at her house. Name banners for my grandchildrens’ rooms – at their house. A Christmas picture frame and ornaments which were purchased and ended up in someone else’s house. Guess it’s time to start making things for my house. I’ve appreciated the inspiration with the fab projects you’ve showcased. Thanks!

  • 568
    Susie Nam says:

    I recently made a birthday banner for my son’s birthday party but I had to cut them all out by hand. In the past, I’ve made Christmas ornaments, a Valentine’s day garland, and other birthday banners. I guess one thing I consistently make are birthday banners so this release is especially exciting for me. I hope I can get my order in before the banner dies sell out tonight!!!! Thanks again for creating the banner dies!

    I made some heart box ornaments that can hold a sweet little surprise on your tree, can be displayed again on Valentine’s Day, or every day…who doesn’t love a heart, right? I am over the moon with the release of these banner dies especially because I can add a little message banner over the top of my heart boxes…mix and match and PTI is making it so easy to do this! I am over the moon with the November release. Thank you for the opportunity to win it all!

  • 572

  • 573
    Denise says:

    Does the kitchen table covered with glitter, buttons, and felt count as home decor? If not, then I have yet to branch into paper crafting for my home, but I am SO excited to start! Thanks for all the thought you put into this release… it is always a treat to be a part of the fun!

  • 574
    Romaine says:

    The funny thing, is that it is not really a craft, but I have so loved some papers, that I have put them in frames….Does using dp behind old window frames made into headboards count as home decor? :0)

  • 575
    Linda Lou says:

    I am new to crafting but have used paper to cover hat boxes, which I then use as decorative storage for all types of goodies!

  • 576
    Mary B says:

    I haven’t used any papercrafting skills for home decorating…yet. I have a definite feeling that’s about to change. Leave it to PTI to introduce a new (or new-to-us)concept that we all must try! Thanks so much for sharing so much of your creativity with us.

So excited!!!

    I used my papercrafting supplies to make a photo holder for my daughter’s baby shower in August. I used the colors of the shower, blue and brown, and I decorated a large binder clip and put her ultrasound pic on it. I think it was really adorable!!!

  • 589

    I use paper crafting in my decor all the time – especially for special dining occasions!! But I’ve also made pictures for my bathroom when I just couldn’t find the right thing, and I used my stamps with acrylic paint to put flowers on my daughter’s table in her nursery. I’ve been working on some luminarias for my Thanksgiving table and paper pumpkins for centerpieces…..there are SO many possibilities!

    Dolly says:

    Funny how your new release is my favorite paper crafting home decor item; banners! I love to make seasonal banners for holidays, celebrations and best of all, just because! I have made pennant ornaments to hang on branches for centerpieces, it’s a great way to use scraps and combo them with my favorite Papertrey Ink stamps and embellishments.

    I’ve made decorative cigar boxes for gifts..with handmade cards, pens, and postage stamps inside. Can’t wait to see this release!!

    I’m home decor challenged, but these banner dies might change that!

    I really like to decorate for the holidays. I made a wall hanging for Halloween and am currently working on ornaments for Christmas. Love the banners!!

    Morgaine says:

    I often make banners, placecards, table centerpieces and decorated boxes. I LOVE to use my papercrafting supplies in decorations. So much fun!

  • 595
    Sara P says:

    Yes, I often do! I love creating decorative shadow boxes. I also have made banners to go across the mantle for the holidays.

    christinem says:

    As of right now I have not. We are going to be moving into our new home in a few weeks, and I will be making some art work with the Turning a Leaf stamp set. Thanks for a wonderful release.

    aimee says:

    I made a candy wreath and added a few tags and such to dress it up during the holidays. I’ve also made some frames with stamped artwork to dress a hallway..

  • 598
    Joan says:

    I made one of those cute clay flower pots full of pens with hand-made paper flowers attached to the pens and stuck in dried peas. I had this on my desk at work for quite a while.

    I have also stamped and decorated photo frames.

  • 599
    Anika says:

    I have embellished frames and made mats for pictures, but haven’t taken it any further than that yet.

  • 600
    Lee says:

    I have made Christmas ornaments and altered items. I’m really excited to start making holiday banners.

  • 601
    BarbaraB says:

    I have done just a few things; my favorite is a memoboard with a frame covered in pretty papers and other embellishments.

  • 602
    Cristina says:

    I’ve made place settings and napkin rings for holidays. But I’m looking forward to this Christmas when, thanks to you guys, I’ll hopefully make a banner or two. Congrats on another amazing release!

  • 603
    Christina M says:

    I’ve only made home decor once so far, and I made an embellished holiday frame with a picture of my kids. I look forward to making more paper crafted decor once my kids are a little older and I have a bit more time!

  • 604
    Sheryl B. says:

    So far, I’ve never used my papercrafting supplies to make home decor, but….never say never! Maybe someday soon with all these great PTI goodies!

  • 605
    Pat says:

    Wedding candles, place settings…but thanks to you there are lots more things I’ll probably try!

  • 606
    Maryse N says:

    I have used them to make many things but I think the ones I like the most are my framed scrapbook pages. I change them seasonally. It’s a fun way to decorate your house. I also like that the pages I work so hard on aren’t just sitting in an album, but they are out and enjoyed by everyone.

  • 607

    Absolutely! I’ve made a sweet altered photo frame, and also a paper-mache monogram letter “G” (for our last night) that has family photos on it and embellishments. I’m so proud whenever a visitor in our home notices these!

  • 608

    All the time! My latest project was a set of paper crafted & embellished embroidery hoops to hang on the wall. If you lightly mist your paper, it becomes pliable & much easier to fit between the hoops.

  • 609
    Laura :) says:

    hmmm, not really. I sew or cross-stitch lots of home decor items, especially for Christmas.

  • 610
    Susan says:

    I don’t know if this counts, but I just used my paper crafting skills to make invitations, programs, favors and cards for my daughter’s wedding. I never could have done it without the skills I have learned from papercrafting with PTI. Thanks for all you’ve taught me!

  • 611
    Debbie D. says:

    I have used the Quilter’s Sampler sets to make framed stamped quilts.

  • 612
    Marla says:

    I have used my stamping skills to make Christmas count downs and also one year I made Snowman picture with family names on them.

    Dixie C. says:

    I have used my crafting skills to make Christmas Ornaments and party decorations, as well as wearable art(flowers and t-shirts). I have lots of ideas…but stay too busy with children at this time to take on big projects (which is why I LOVE cards!).
    Tonight’s release and give-away is so exciting! PTI is such an incredible company!

  • 614
    Kimberly O. says:

    I made decorated stone tiles with tissue paper, stamping and Stazon ink. 🙂

  • 615
    Shelby says:

    Hm… Well, I made a “JOY” wall hanging for Christmas last year, and something similar for my dad with our pictures on it.

  • 616
    Becky says:

    I created a collaged, double-sided window with paper, rub-ons, paint & wire on a window from an old house! I can hang it as a room divider & post notes, photos & momentos on it! I love it & had a blast making it!

  • 617
    Keisha says:

    I haven’t used my papercrafting skills to decorate anything for home decor, yet. It’s something I’d like to get into, maybe make a wreath or something like that for christmas. I think it’s really pretty when other people do it, I just haven’t got on the bandwagon yet. 🙂

  • 618
    Priscilla from California says:

    Actually, I haven’t. No, wait a minute, I have used my supplies to cover boxes and containers that I have in my craft room.

  • 619
    Jenny S. says:

    Yes, I have made mobiles out of die cuts/stamped images. Also made other stuff to decorate for the holidays.

  • 620

    Very interesting topic this month! I have done quite a few baskets, boxes, and pictures using my paper crafting skills! I just finished my annual Stamp Camp for my gals in my classes. We did a cute Thanksgiving favor…..thanks PTI for all your wonderful items!

  • 621
    Melanie Nass says:

    I’ve used my papercrafting skills to make framed art collages. Excited to see all the fun goodies tonight!!!! Have you all thought about doing trains, there are not a lot of cute sets out there…food for thought 🙂

  • 622
    Joyce W. says:

    Well,different from all of you guys, I have never used my paper crafting skills to create home decor, since I don’t think my hubby really appreciates it. He will never understand why I am crazy about the pattern papers and the stamp sets, etc. I keep my paper crafting quietly to myself, and enjoy myself. it is kind of sad…

  • 623
    Alyssa Clawson says:

    Making home decor items using paper crafting techniques and supplies is so much fun! Especially decorating for parties and holidays! I am in the process of making most of my own holiday decorations this year as a way to cut costs. My PTI goodies are close at hand and these new release items would make my decor even more fabulous and festive!

  • 624
    KathyN says:

    I used some paints and stamps on wood frames many years ago for baby shower and wedding shower gifts. Love your new releases tonight!!

  • 625
    CrazyCurl says:

    Just last month I made a Halloween banner to hang in my family room. It turned out so nice, I’ll be using it again next year. I got lots of compliments on it!

  • 626
    Andrea McCulley says:

    Yes, I made a little bird house ornament from a template that Nichole posted a while back. My list of ideas for my next project is very long and I sure appreciate all of the paper crafting ideas you share in addition to cards!

  • 627
    Mel H says:

    Yes, I’ve used my papercrafting supplies to make lots of items, but last year I made my mother cry when I presented her with a shadowbox heart frame that had a my favorite photo of my sisters and my parents. She said it was her favorite gift last year, and she has it hanging right inside the door where everyone can see it. Totally worth the time and effort to see her love it so.

  • 628
    Joan E. says:

    I took a class on making a bouquet of flowers in a flower pot. I love it, and I have it displayed in my home. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • 629
    Jennifer S says:

    Yes! I have used my papercrafting supplies to decorate picture frames, decorate votive candle holders, and a few other things. I once used foam board and scrapbook paper to make a really cute framed scrapbook page. I love to make name frames for baby gifts! Haven’t made a banner though, YET!!

  • 630
    Stephanie says:

    I made a beautiful topiary using paper flowers to cover the styrofoam balls. I made this for my office. I don’t have a grren thumb so this gave me great joy to create a beautiful floral arrangment I couldn’t kill.

  • 631
    Sharon D says:

    I guess I haven’t really made any papercraft home decor–unless setting out the most recent card I made counts. This is a great release!

  • 632
    Heidi Stock says:

    I made a cute monogram wall hanging using my Silhouette, some black PTI felt, some red PTI buttons… and I put it all on a small square box lid-turned ‘canvas’ covered with light blue vintage dotted fabric. It’s on the wall next to my wall collage of mirrors, framed art and family photos 🙂

    And this week I’m going to make a “JOY” banner for Christmas (I think I’ve already procrastinated past Thanksgiving)!

  • 633
    Angela H. says:

    Yep — various wall art, a couple banners, Christmas ornaments, calendars…makes all those craft supplies even more versatile!

  • 634
    Amy Dann says:

    I made a paper alphabet that I have taped in my daughter’s room to help her with her ABCs. It worked! She’s an expert now! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. Such a great month of new goodies!

  • 635
    Mary Webb says:

    No. I’m relatively new to papercrafting, but Papertrey Ink products make me excited to try!

  • 636
    christina cook says:

    i’ve used paper crafting for decorating my kids bedrooms and in picure frames

  • 637
    Jennie C says:

    This is a hard one to answer! I decorated a clock face to give as a gift once. I’ve made lots of ornaments for all my nieces and nephews with various techniques. One of my favorite things is the trivet I use made from a ceramic tile with stamping on the surface.

  • 638
    Julie says:

    Nope not yet, but think about it all the time (that’s a start, right?)

  • 639
    June says:

    Have always enjoyed making things-years ago when I was first married I stenciled all of my Christmas tags for my family gifts. Another year my sister and I made tree skirts for our Christmas tree. I have even made paper crafts with my Kindergarten students-they stenciled with paint a Christmas card for their parents!

  • 640
    Lesley says:

    Other than the odd Christmas decoration, I’ve never been brave enough to make something to display around my home…I’m still a bit shy with my abilities!

  • 641
    Maria Goniotaki says:

    I have used rubber stamps combined with calligraphy to make wall art. I have also rubberstamped on material to create pillowcases and duvets.

  • 642

    I made a halloween tree for halloween this year, and I plan on making a Christmas tree as well. I have also made Christmas ornaments to put on the tree. I haven’t made anything to keep out all year long yet, but it’s only a matter of time.

  • 643
    kerry davis says:

    I sure have! A few years ago I made “name frames” for my whole family as Christmas presents. They still have them on their walls today. And most recently, I decorated w/ cutout leaves and had everyone in our family write what they are thankful for.

  • 644
    Michele says:

    I have created multiple christmas decorating items before; paper strip trees, pinecone ornaments, and a paper strip wreath. I won a Christmas decorating contest at work because of them :).

  • 645
    Sandy Glin says:

    I made several Christmas Countdown Snowmen for gifts this year . . . so excited about the release!

  • 646
    Janette Childs says:

    I make all kinds of home decor… frames, magnet boards, banners, etc. That new Papertrey Banner collection rocks! Would make decorating easy, fun, and beautiful!

  • 647
    Brittney Mitchell says:

    I have never created anything for my home. I have thought about it but I am not confident enough yet to display my work. I am taking baby steps and getting there soon.

  • 648
    Robin H. says:

    I have never used crafting for home decor but would love to start! The banner sets seem like a fabulous way of doing it. Thanks so much for all the amazing products this release

  • 649
    Ketha says:

    I’ve made several things, mainly during the Holidays…name cards for dinners, place mats too, “hint” cards for hubby to locate his Valentine…wreaths, labels for jars and containers in pantry and bookmarks for Bible Study group… Looking forward to the release…

  • 650
    Eva C says:

    Oh yes..I have made many thingsthere are a couple still in the house now. I have a candle and a candle holder that were embellshed with paper crafting techniques (this is my favorite) and I currently have an ornamental sign in my entryway that I made.

  • 651
    Aimee G. says:

    Oh I use my papercraft supplies for everything! I’ve made vinyl wall decorations for my children’s room, paper garlands to hang from the piano, and I use my dies to cut applique for projects made from fabric. My tools and supplies are useful for so much more than just cards and scrapbooks!

  • 652
    Kristi Saeger says:

    I’ve created banners, framed scrapbook pages as art, a hanging advent calendar, ornaments, and helped a friend create large hanging owls cut out of paper for bday party decor.

  • 653
    Jovan says:

    I have not used my paper crafting skills to make home decor. I’ve painted every room in my home and have done some cool technics but no craft decorations.

  • 654
    Ann Lind says:

    I have made many items but my favorite is the advent calendar I have had for years the small pieces have magnets on the back and the tree they go on is backed by a sheet of metal in a frame. I made one for my grandson as well such fun for kids to move the pieces around.

  • 655
    Jen says:

    Thank you for offering this giveaway! I have used my paper craft supplies to make ornaments, frames, banners, plaques, etc. Have a great evening!

  • 656
    Ivette says:

    My passion has been making ornaments for Christmas. I have an entire tree dedicated to all handmade ornaments. I have stamped on ceramic, glass, wood, paper and whatever else I can find to create one-of-a-kind keepsakes. But I don’t limit myself to only stamping. I have lots of quilled ornaments, which is where my love of paper started!

  • 657
    Karen Mc says:

    Every year I try to make some new home decor items. One year I made a serving tray by stamping on dominos and using them for the surface of the tray. Using the dies to cut fabric and using iron on adhesive is also a way I’ve made table runners. It’s always great to find multiple uses for everything I purchase. A great way to justify getting more 🙂

  • 658
    Robynne says:

    I did and I loved the result. I made a canvas for my sons room when we re-decorated and i loved the outcome – and so did he. A double bonus!

  • 659
    Laurel says:

    I don’t know if this counts as home decor, but I have made a lot of table favors and centerpieces for decorations at church parties.

    Like so many others have already stated, I am so excited to order the banner stamps and matching dies! Talk about home decor!

  • 660
    Jewels says:

    I made a family tree using the original Out on a limb set and got an Honorable mention in the old monthly PTI contest and it still holds a special spot on the wall beside My Dad’s photo (who passed away) I also made a patterned paper mosaic with my Daughters pictures in the center and have them framed and hanging on our photo wall. Paper crafted decor adds such Character to any home and I can not wait to make more!!!

  • 661
    Lauren says:

    I am new to this paper crafting obsession, but it all started with my daughter’s first birthday in July when I made a banner and butterflies to decorate the house. The banner dies would have made my life much easier! Thanks for all of your beautiful products and project ideas, pti!

  • 662
    Janis says:

    I made a faux mosaic mirror frame that now hangs in my craft room. Other than that, mostly just organizers and desk sets. It’s fun to make things for my home that are unique and made to order!

  • 663
    Monica M. says:

    I clearly remember. I made a banner for my husband’s birthday the first year we were married. Everyone thought it was cute, and my husband wanted to know when I had time to make it. By the way, great release!

  • 664
    Marybeth says:

    Yes I have. Ive made place cards, and i have even made banners before . cant wait to use the new banner dies from payertray

  • 665
    Annette P says:

    Yes. For Mother’s day I filled small vases with a single color m&m, then used my punches to make flowers on pipe-cleaner stems. I made one for all the Mothers in my family to take home, but first used them to decorate the mantel.

  • 666
    Gigi says:

    Making papercrafts for home decor is one affordable way I’ve been able to decorate my home. I’ve used dies and punches to make wreaths as well as paper flowers to make paper flower arrangements to put in vases. I can’t imagine not ever using my paper crafting materials and tools to make something beautiful and decorative for my home!

  • 667
    Christine N says:

    Yes, and I mostly make collages for wall art but I’ve made numerous altered items!

  • 668
    Wahinelei says:

    Yes!!! I recently altered a frame for a poem that my friend sent me. I was so pleased with the way it turned out! It was WAY better than any store bought frame and the poem is even more special to me now.

  • 670
    Mary (Happy Now) says:

    I have made several home decor items, but I often give those away as gifts… I am thrilled with some covered JOY letters and a chipboard Thankful banner that I do have, though!

    Awesome release! Fingers crossed!

  • 673
    Kellie B says:

    I have not. I am a collector of supplies…I found that I really do use those supplies to make cards. I stuggle to make some of the other things that I think I will make.

  • 674
    Angela Person says:

    I’ve made decorated picture frames, banners and used the paper to make stencils for sewing projects.

  • 675
    Barb says:

    I’ve always made boxes, covered containers, picture frames, wraps, ribbon flowers, treat boxes and the like. When you are a paper crafter you get into all sorts of fun things. The joy of giving is so much fun when you make it yourself.

  • 680
    Cassi says:

    Yes, of course! My first home decor project was creating artwork to hang above our couch. I purchased 3-12×12 canvases of varying thickness, paint, modge podge, and some Amy Butler Patterend Paper (also 12×12) and went to work. It turned out great and is still on display. Since then I’ve tried my hand at other things like a banner for grandfather’s mantle and picture frames for my nieces and nephews. I just love the November Release, thanks PTI!

  • 681
    melissa sibert says:

    I have made a WELCOME banner for my entryway at the front door, and have made several painted and stamped canvases for inside my living room. I have also done some stamped things with photos to hang up as well. I like the way I can custom design things to go with my decor and not spend a lot. It adds a personal touch.

  • 682

    I enjoy making various wall hangings for our home- just some spruced up little quotes and monogrammed things. One of my favorites is making a sort of box lid out of cardstock and stamping my boys’ handprints on them every year. They hang just like artist’s canvases, but I’ll be able to trim them and put them in an album when they’re no longer room decor. All of your awesome ideas this week have my wheels turning and thinking up new ways to use papercrafting in our celebrations. Thank you so so so much for all your hard work & sharing your talent with us!

  • 683
    Carol says:

    Yes, I have! I recently made a banner for my scrap room and I’ve even made a few pictures frames.

  • 686
    Anita says:

    I have used my papercrafting supplies to make decorations for birthday parties and holidays…and a few picture frames, alterables and such. I would like to try more…like canvases and vinyl. So excited for the new release it looks like it is going to be awesome!

  • 687
    Cara says:

    I stamped the large damask design onto a homemade curtain to go in our remodeled 100 year old bathroom. It turned out great!

  • 688
    Mindilynn says:

    I recently made a wall hanging for our first child’s nursery (we are actually due very soon — dec 9th). I punched out circles, used stamps to decorate the circles and strung it on wire with pink crystal beads between the circle and hung it with a bow if ribbon. I love how it turned out 😉

    I’ve used my papercrafting to make many different home decor items. I’ve done banners, vinyl on plates with my cricut, stamped images and framed them, created magnets, made a dry erase board and many other things. I can’t wait to use more PTI supplies! I looooove everything you do!

  • 695
    Sandy Fullmer says:

    I have made Christmas ornaments from paper but that is about all. The new big banners are a nice idea though. Sandy

  • 696

    Yes! One if my favorite things is a shadowbox with a photo of mygrandparents where I added some vintage goodies!

  • 697
    Dani B says:

    Most of my paper crafting is for cards, holiday gifts like Valentine treat bags, gift tags, etc. I did make an advent calendar with the boxes before and my kids really enjoyed that. And I always end up cutting leaves for my sister’s family. They write something they are thankful for each day in November until Thanksgiving and then read them on Thanksgiving day. She’s way more organized than I am!

    I have used my paper-crafting skills in some instances. I have decorated candles for centerpieces….and have stamped and framed art work for display on walls.

    I’ve made two different advent calendars for friends using cookie sheets and little circular tins which I filled with candy, crafting goodies, and other treats. Another great release!!
