Nuts for Acorns with Lisa

Happy Friday and welcome, welcome! Lisa, from The Crafting Cave, with you today and I'm sharing my love of acorns! Yes, I love acorns. They are great reminders of my childhood, you can read about it on my blog. Acorns also make gorgeous Fall Decor. So how awesome to see this great 3D Acorn Box at SVG Attic. I resized the file to make the acorns large to sit around my house. From top to bottom they are 8 inches in height and about 6 inches in width at the widest points.

I had several sheets of Pink Paislee {Mist}ables in my stash and I thought it was time to use them.
I used Distress Ink to add some color on the leaves and shell. I think the green really gave it the pop I was looking for. The glitter paper is Best Creations and Martha Stewart. The crinkle ribbon is by 3GirlJam. All my supplies are signs of being a hoarder, oldies. 
  Always remember when resizing your files to keep all the elements grouped together, resize to desired size and then ungroup if necessary. Otherwise, all the elements of your project won't fit together properly. 
 These Acorns do not stand on their own. I propped them up against 
each other.
 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great crafty weekend!
