Swirly Scribbles Pumpkin Favor

September 9, 2016 4 Comments

12 Days of Halloween

Welcome to my first day in my 12 Days of Halloween!

I enjoy Halloween.  Not the creepy, scary stuff but, the fun dress up, the kids’ excitement, the decorating and sharing of treats.

Today’s creation is all about those treats

and is good for the kids and the adults no matter how you celebrate in the Fall.

And as it turns out it also qualifies in the WWYS80 challenge as they are using Swirly Bird this week.

WWYS80 - Swirly Bird

So now, let’s take a look at what we have!

Swirly Scribble Pumpkin Treat Box from theartfulinker.com

I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and Swirly Bird stamp set to create this cute pumpkin treat box.

I started with a 2-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.

Then, I cut a piece of Tangerine Tango with the largest Swirly Scribbles Thinlit.

The die cut was adhered with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

It should look like this.

Then, take the third largest swirl stamp from Swirly Bird.  Ink it in Pumpkin Pie ink and stamp it in the center.

Next, you’ll need to take your paper snips and trim around the scribble die cut.

Bottom of Pumpkin Treat Holder - from theartfulinker.com

I added a three sided “box” to the back of the pumpkin shape and inserted a strip for the bottom.

Why?

The pumpkin shape is not symmetrical and by making the bottom separately from the sides you have some wiggle room to adjust for this.

The sides were made with a 1-1/2″ x 6″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.

This piece will be scored along the landscape side at 1/4″, 1-3/4″, 4″ and 5-3/4″.

Put Tear and Tape on each of the 1/4″ wide end pieces and attach this to the back of the pumpkin shape.  Be sure to bring it close to the bottom of the shape.

The bottom piece measures 1-3/4″ x 3″ and is scored at 3/8″ from either end.  Put Tear and Tape on the 3/8″ ends and slide the bottom up inside the box created above.  Rub to adhere well.

You’ll cut one each of the small and large leaf from Swirly Scribbles from Garden Green cardstock.  There’s a sliver of Garden Green cardstock to make a vine.  Run your Bone Folder along the length to soften the fibers and then wrap it around a pencil.  The Early Espresso stem is cut free hand.

As you can see, the Pumpkin Treat Holder can hold a couple of Lindt truffles.  Or if your prefer, Ferrero Rocher or Ghiradelli squares will also fit.
