AUTUMN box and mini banner

hello all, 
hope you are doing fab and enjoying the cooler weather. as for me i think i am getting tired of it, lol, and i am already dreading the snow. but, is nothing i can do about it but enjoy it while is there, right? 
anyhow, today i am sharing a gift box with gift: a mini banner.
 actually, i am thinking to make more of these cuties to give to my thanksgiving dinner company as a way of gratitude.

Autumn Memories
-hexagon gift  box-
i used my cricut expression and the life is a party cricut cartridge to make the gift box and to cut the side panels with patterned paper. i cut it at 7.75" and used the brown bazzill super sturdy cardstock that came with my card kit from artful delight.
 i believe the color name is "candy bar" like a hershey chocolate bar (my fav chocolate in the whole wide world).
actually, all the supplies for the box are from the card kit.

after i cut my box, i cut the panel sides and used that lovely leaves paper from basic grey called peach cobbler  (i do not understand how  they called it peach cobler but hey, that is not for me to ponder over it, hehe)
you can see the wooden elements here. they are such a great accent. 

the mini banner is just adorable. it turned out super cute. i used all the lawn fawn sequences and threaded them with that mustard color floss (from my stash).

here is a better look---i couldn't take a pic while hanging. not good light in the house.

and so sorry i have so many pics, (trying to get you a good visual despite the conditions)

hope you enjoyed my project for the artful delight design team today.

i want to remind you and/or invite you to our monthly challenge following this month's sketch. artful delight also carries a scrapbooking kit and therefor they also have a monthly scrapbooking sketch for you to follow. no excuses, hehe
the prize is a kit..nothing to loose about but have fun and hoping you win.
here is the link again:
