Fall is my favorite season of the year! The joys of seeing the different colors of the leaves is scintillating. I wish it would be fall all year long. However, we have endless crafts that we can make out of fall leaves and keep the memories alive. Here is my first craft using the colorful leaves.
Things you will need:
- a 8.5″x11″ paper

If you are having an open entertainment cabinet for the Television, Game Station and DVD players, you probably are dealing with huge wires wiggling around and crowding behind. Here is an easy way to deal with messy cords.
You need a shoe box, decorative paper, glue stick, scissors, pencil, tape.
The shoe box I had came with air holes on the sides. If not, make air holes about one inch and a half in diameter on each side of the box. Now, wrap the entire box with decorative paper using glue stick. I prefer glue stick over glue because it will prevent smudging and becoming moist.
Circle and fasten the cords using a tape just leaving enough space to reach the outlets. Now arrange all the cords neatly inside. If there are more than two gadgets, consider using an extension cord.
Now close the lid to the box and all the messy cords are hidden!
Colorful Binders are a bit costlier than the usual white ones. So why not make your own colorful binders! The best part is, you get to choose your own favorite colors and designs.
All you need is colorful gift wrapping papers and a thicker uni-colored paper to write the title.
Measure the sides of the binders and cut out 2 pieces of color paper. My binders had a transparent slot on the front and back which made the job much easier. Slide the color paper into the slot one on the front and another at the back. If your binders do not have a transparent slot, glue the color paper in the front and back. You might want to use a glossy paper if you are gluing to save the binder from normal wear and tear.
For the sides, you need a slightly thicker paper, because the slot is narrower and the paper is hard to slide in. Cut the paper after measuring the slot on the side of the binder. Before sliding the paper into the slot on the side, write the title of the binder using colored marker. Use uni-colored paper for the side, and a color that is contrast to the rest of the binder so that the title pops out without blur. Use a marker that is easily visible across the uni-colored paper so that you will be able to spot your binder on the shelf easily.
