I settled upon making pumpkin boxes that can be used for fall decorations or favor boxes.
- Cube Box template
- Patterned paper/ cardstock
- Paper bag
- Green ribbon
- Glue dots
- Black puffy paint
Using the cube box template and patterned paper/ cardstock, design and assemble the number of pumpkin boxes that you want to decorate. I added puffy paint to the face expressions for some additional texture and dimension to one box and added the pumpkin faces to another.
To create the pumpkin stem, cut off a 2 inch piece from the top of a brown paper bag. Moisten slightly to make the material more pliable and twist the rectangle into the shape of a stem. Attach the stem with glue dots and tie a green ribbon around the stem as your leaves. I also curled some green wired ribbon for stems.
In just a few easy steps, I was all ready for fall! Happy Crafting and if you create any hybrid projects with Trixie Scraps products, please link us up so that we can leave some love.
