This weeks challenge is brought to us by October's guest designer, Mou:
Create free standing accents with kit leftovers.
I used leftover patterened papers and cardstock from the Paper Posies October kit to paper-piece a pumpkin. Added stitching around and a button for a more finished look. I can now use this colorful pumpkin as accent on a layout or a card or even use it in home decor. I mounted mine on cardboard and punched holes to tuck it in a little corner somewhere. Using up your leftovers from each kit saves you the trouble of filing them away, wastage from tossing them and the best part is that it makes it very easy to create themed accents because the colors are just right because Michele has already done all the coordinating for you. Now, you can have handmade accents to use on a future layout.
Have fun, ladies! I can't wait to see what accents you come up with using kit scraps! This will be great inspiration for all of us! Share your creations (on our message board - www.paperposies.ning.com) by next Sunday night to be eligible for October's prize packet!
