Happy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Box
Good Monday Morning Peeps!! Hope you all had a great weekend, it was beautiful here in southwest MO.
Today I am sharing a fun little Pumpkin Box that I made for this week's Late Night Stampers Challenge. This week the challenge is "Thanksgiving or Thank you create a project for Thanksgiving or you can make a thank you card. Your choice." I batted around a couple of ideas before landing on this. I used my coluzzle to cut out the ovals. I cut out 6 ovals with pumpkin pie card stock and then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze ink. I had originally thought I would emboss the ovals with the dotted folder but when I was looking for it, I saw the vintage wall and thought it would be so pretty, and it is!!! LOL!!!
I layered the back to ovals together and glued and then added the top oval with some foam tape to give it some dimension. I hand cut the stem using a bit of DS paper from the Autumn Spice pack. I had to cut four and glue two together, because I didn't like the look of the back side of the paper showing. The leaf is a punch I picked up recently It is a marvy embossing punch, altho the embossing is very apparent on this paper. I added the leaf to the pumpkin with more foam tape. The button is from the Deck the Halls button pack and I threaded some twine through the button holes and tied a bow and then added the button to the leaf with my glue gun. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and is stamped with Early Espresso ink onto very vanilla and I hand cut out the end and glued the "flag" on, sliding it under the leaf. I added a stem and leaf to the back of the box but not the button or sentiment.
The box is made with a piece of pumpkin pie card stock 5 inches by 6-1/2 inches. I scored it at 1 inch on both long sides and then score at 2-1/2 inches and 4 inches on the short side.
I think I will make a few more of these to use on my Thanksgiving table. I will add a bag of goodies to the box. This is a fun little box to make, so give it a try!!
Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
