Sneak Peek

Fall 2016 Issue Sneak Peek

A quick look at the designs featured in our Fall 2016 issue of Craft Ideas!

We kick of the issue with a Back to School section (p. 14) with items to help keep teachers and parents organized, teacher gifts and even a lesson plan for explaining the skeleton. The Halloween section (p. 26) is filled with scary and practical crafts, and the pumpkins feature (p. 42) includes a bevy of pumpkins made with foam, fabric, tape, decoupage and more.

You’ll love our selection of Thanksgiving projects too! The Corn Cob Place Card Holder on p. 58 looks good enough to eat. Use Quilted Chalkboard Placemats (p. 52) to keep the kids occupied while you're busy putting the finishing touches on dinner.

I had a hard time choosing greeting cards — there were just too many cute fall cards to pick from! As a result, there are six online bonus cards (p. 70), so don’t forget to check those out.

Our Holiday Head Start designs (p. 74) will provide some inspiration for the Christmas season a little early this year.

In addition to the 55+ creative ideas, we’ve gathered 58 prizes from publishers and manufacturers — click on Giveaways for a chance to add more crafty tools or books to your workroom. We were able to gather five different coloring books — three copies each for a total of 15 copies to give away! (Contests will be offered until Oct. 24, 2016.) 

Have fun this fall and happy crafting!
