Now, I can't wait to see what everyone did with these cute files, so let's get started!  Here's my complete set:



First up is the card.  Here is the outside:

And here is the inside:
 The smaller pumpkin shape cuts that I used on the inside can also be used on the outside (front) if you wish.  I chose to leave my outside looking "pumpkin-y", and used the smaller cuts to cover most of the floral side of the paper on the inside.  The green pattern was perfect for my sentiment, and the lighter neutral will be easy to write on.

I love that it stands, tent-style, to show off our beautiful work to all who pass by!


Next is the place card:

I used chalkboard vinyl for my name area - or you could use it to label foods on a buffet if, like my family, you're more casual in your seating.

Finally, the favor box:

From the front, this looks a lot like the place card. It's the same size and they use the same base. You could even add the smaller layered cut shape to this one as well; I chose to stamp an image directly on my pattern paper instead.  Here's what's different:


Where the place card stands tent-style like the card, the favor box has sides attached to the flat bottom.  Plenty of room for a little mix of candy corn and dry roasted peanuts, yum!  I'm already thinking about making an enlarged version of this so I can tuck in a few treats for the "little bitties" that we'll have at our family celebration.

I hope you enjoyed my take on this great set of files!  If you're interested, all of the products I used are available from Close To My Heart:
