Note cards & Tic Tac Toe

Once again, I have two projects for today. The first one is a note card from this file:
This was so fast and easy to do, it wouldn't take very long at all to make up a set as a hostess gift as you are running out the door.

 After printing and cutting the note card and envelope out, I inked my edges then I added some leaves using a small leaf stamp from my stash, some shinny leaf  confetti and a piece of twine on the edge.
These would be useful for several different things, Thanksgiving dinner invitations, my favorite, tea party invitations, hostess gifts, actually a gift for any occasion.
Next I had more bottle cap fun, using up some more of these Fall Pockets bottle cap images from last month.
I wanted to make a Tic Tac Toe game that can go wherever you do. I left the outside a little bland. I started with a Silhouette file for the box, cutting the top, bottom and insert with my Cameo. I printed the, "Tic Tac Toe" with my Cricut.
I added the grid lines with my Cricut using Sure Cuts a Lot to trace a picture of the grid which I found online.

I cut the images out, inked the edges then adhered them to the inside of the bottle caps then I coated the entire inside of the caps with Glossy Accents. I made 5 scarecrow pieces and 5 cactus pieces. All of the pieces fit inside making it easier to find them and to take them along wherever you go.
