Fall Paper Hangie

I had to come up with a quick but fun fall craft to teach some girls and it had to be inexpensive. This is it. Card stock for the background colors; pretty printed paper for the smaller square (I used the same print on all of these because it matched so well). I used my circle cutter a couple times for the circles but decided I wanted a ruff edge. My decorative scissors helped with that but don't look too close because it's impossible to keep it a circle when trying to cut with the decorative scissors. Brown ribbon going across each square and for the hanging part to hold all squares together; and the letters I used my cricut cutter for. I put a little gold glitter glue on them for a little something more. Also, I used more of my pearl stickers around the circles but you can't tell in this picture very well. Inking the edges of all the pieces gives a nicer feel and looks like more time went into the project. Also, to give better sturdiness to the squares I actually used coasters (the cardboard like ones you use at any restaurant) which work really well.
