The Paper Girls blog hop

Welcome to my stop on The Paper Girls Challenge blog hop!
 I hope you are enjoying all the altered projects.
My post is brought to you today by the letter S!
Originally, this was a plain, boring wooden letter:
I painted it a fun golden mustard color.
Attached grey twine around the perimeter.
And wrapped some natural twine around a couple spots.
Then came embellishing.
On this bottom cluster I used an old SU paper pack called Autumn Meadows to fussy cut the leaves.
The Family bingo card is cut from Authentique's Splendid paper line.
The acorn I handmade with cork and paper (from EP's This & That Charming 6x6).
On this middle cluster I fussy cut leaves and acorns using the Crafters Companion stamp set called Autumn Leaves from the A Little Bit Sketchy line. I'm also entering this into their monthly challenge which is to use fall colors.
And finally, I added some floating wooden hearts cut from shelf/drawer liner (similar to contact paper)! I love that stuff - works just like vinyl but is much cheaper.
My plan is to place this on my fall-themed mantel. Hopefully I'll have it all finished next week to show you.
Thanks for stopping by today.
