Fall Sampler Home Decor’

I love decorating for fall.  It makes things feel warm and homey.  The other night at my Mystery Class we all made this framed piece of Fall Décor’ featuring the Gently Falling stamp set.  The framed pieces has lots of texture with the Woodgrain embossing, the burlap ribbon and the wood button. There’s also paper piercing and sponging to give it more depth. This project was a big hit at the class.

Yummy treats

I’ve been busy making lots of this fun gift bags filled with some yummy treats.  First of all let me tell you how I made the bags and then I’ll share the recipe for the treats inside.
The bag is made by using the Tag a Bag Gift Bag which is actually a flat bag.  I scored the bag at 1″ on the bottom and two sides and then just folded it up like a little lunch bag.  This way it stands up .  The leave embellishments are made from Sweater Weather DSP using the Autumn Accents Die.
I filled the bags with yummy Carmel Corn.  Here’s the very simple recipe. 
Microwave Caramel Corn

½ C. butter
1 C. brown sugar
¼ C. dark Karo syrup
Dash of salt

Microwave on high 4 minutes in a glass bowl. Stir after 2 minutes
Then add:
½ t. baking soda
1/8 t. vanilla

Stir until fluffy. Pour this over the puffed popcorn (I use one full bag of the popcorn) that is in a large Tupperware bowl (or one that is safe to go back into the microwave.) Stir this up, then microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute.
Spread this out on wax paper to let it cool. If you want added sweetness, melt some chocolate almond bark and drizzle over the caramel corn. I put this in the refrigerator so the chocolate gets hardened. Then take out and break it up into smaller pieces.
Note: Here is a photo of the puffcorn that I get. This is the secret to yummy caramel corn!
