Fall Boxes Make Great Home Decor


Create these wood boxes for your new Fall decor.


This project is easy and will not take you long to make.  We used the Fall Break paper line by Carta Bella, cut it to fit the sides of pre-stained wood boxes and glued it in place. Fill them with Fall decor and put on display or set them out as they re and add some leaves.

Devin Finley, a fine art and graffiti artist will create new artwork on three walls next to the skatepark.

This event is sponsored by Ben Franklin Crafts, MacPherson's and Tehaleh.

It is a short walk across the street from the school.



Devin's work takes him all over the country: Washington, Portland, Florida, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Denver and Dallas so far.


Devin is a self-taught artist who started his business DefineArts in September 2013. It has grown steadily ever since.`


You might think this is a photograph, but it is actually a painting on canvas portraying the Boardwalk at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. Devin painted it using left over ordinary household latex paint.

Rock Painting - Birds on a Branch


If you live in Bonney Lake, WA, you probably have hear about rock painting and how people leave their painted rocks in public places for other people to find. It's such a fun way to spread creativity and make someone smile. You may want to join the Bonney Lake Rocks group to post the rocks you create and the ones you find.

But in today's rock project, we took rock painting to a new level! We found small rocks and painted them as little blue birdies!

Project by Monroe team

While they were drying, we cut out a tree branch out of brown paper using our free-to-use Die Cut Machine. We have 100s of dies for you to use with our machines - it's free when you use them to cut materials purchased in our store. If you're not familiar with our Die-Cut Machine Center, watch this video for a small glimpse on how to use this free service. CLICK HERE.  Glue your cut-out branch to your plaque using double-sided tape or Mod Podge.


Then glue the rocks (birds) to your plaque placing them in random areas on your branch. Use a strong glue like E6000 to make sure they don't fall off. Glue a small feather to each bird to create the "tail". Leave the plaque flat for at least a day to make sure your birds are glued solid.
