We are dedicating today to one of our absolute favorite parts of Fall; Apple Picking. It's a New England must but even if you're far from an apple orchard or cool climates, with a bag of apples and some of the fab DIY's we have packed into today, you too can live out this favorite Fall past time. The best part is it's all totally approachable design. The kind that even scrappy DIY'ers like ourselves can do.

This is just a glimpse of what's in store. We'll have the full crazy cute spread coming up in a bit. Imagine a quintessential Fall picnic loaded with easy as apple pie projects and recipes too.

Before we delve into the full party, we wanted to start the festivities off with downloads for recreating all those paper goods. From watercolor gingham mason jar toppers to the cutest envelope liners. This is the first step in crafting the ultimate apple party.

DIY Mason Jar Lids:
STEP 1  Download our watercolor gingham print here
STEP 2  Print out on Avery's full sheet labels
STEP 3  Trace the lid of your mason jar with a pencil on the backside of the label sheet, and cut out the circle shape.
STEP 4 Stick the circle sticker on your lid, and voila!

Supplies for Envelope Liners:
-8.5"x11" paper
-envelopes (we got ours from Paper Source)
-double stick tape or gluestick

Instructions for Envelope Liners:
STEP 1 Download our watercolor gingham print JPG, and print it out on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.
STEP 2 Trace the edge of your envelope on the backside of the print, and cut out.
STEP 3 Match the liner to the edge of the glue on the inside of the envelope, and then use your ruler to mark where the liner is too wide on the bottom.  Trim the sides so they fit.
STEP 4 Use double stick tape (or glue) to stick the liner to the flap of the envelope.
STEP 5 Tuck the bottom inside the envelope.  You're done!

We'll be back in just a bit with the full, crazy gorgeous affair captured by Rebecca Hansen Weddings as well as even more DIY's to tuck into your crafting arsenal. xoxo
