Autumn Craft Challenge

I am entering today's project into Papermill Direct's Autumn Craft Challenge.  I wanted to make something a bit different and when I saw the acorn box from SVG Cuts 'Acorn Autumn kit' I knew this was it! Although it was a bit fiddly to put together and I got lots of glue all over my fingers, I love how it turned out.

I first cut the acorn out using Mocha Brown Card from Papermill Direct using my Silhouette Cameo.  I added some digital paper over the base and then cut some Buff Smooth Card layers for the lid which I embossed with polka dots before sticking it down.  I sponged all the layers with brown ink to give it a bit of texture.  The leaves were cut using my Big Shot using some old Sizzix leaf dies and then attached to the lid along with some twine and a button.
