Today starts the beginning for the Falliday Fest tutorials and I have made a sample to be included in the gallery for this cute little project for Falliday Fest tutorial #1 :
I never thought to create a box design and make a pumpkin with it!  I think this was such a cute idea and so fun to decorate for the Fall season!
(If you would like to learn how to make one for yourself - CLICK HERE)
If you do make one of these, I hope you will load it up to splitcoaststampers and share it with us!

I've changed up my version by making it a Jack-o-lantern style by adding the pumpkin face and spider to the front panel.  The pumpkin face comes from an older Stampin' Up! set that I had in my stash.  The spider is actually a rub-on that I added to it.  I took the orange panels and stamped them with the MFT Transparent Triangles Background stamp.  I rounded the corners with my corner chomper and then used a black pen to add some stitching details around each panel as well.

Because of the name of the tutorial, I'm sure you've guessed that I've used the SU! Punch Board to make my box.  I made it with some Crumb Cake card stock and then sponged around the edges.  I also used the same card stock to make the curly vines by wrapping it around a paint brush.  For the stem I used burlap ribbon and followed the tutorial on putting it together.

For the leaves, I didn't have the same as the tutorial showed, so I used my MFT Falling Leaves Die-namics and cut them out in Crumb Cake and Garden Green card stock.  I sponged around the edges of them all with different colors of distress inks.  I just glued them on top of the box in layers and curled them up slightly for dimension.  I also covered the top of the leaves with a Wink of Stella glitter pen.  They look so shimmery and pretty which you can see at the top.

Hope you like my Punch Board Pumpkin project today and I hope you will stop by and check out some of the fun going on during Falliday Fest too!  (I will have more projects to share as it goes, so stay tuned in for that!) :)

Oh, my gosh, that is seriously the cutest box! That little face on the orange totally turns this into a pumpkin. Love the leaves, stem, and curls on top. I can't get over how adorable this is! Thanks so much for sharing this in our Pumpkin Time Challenge at Double D!

NanaConnie said...

What a fantastic way to make a pumpkin, Vicki! Love the dp you chose for the pumpkin and the Jack-o-Lantern face you added. Much as I hate spiders, I can even appreciate that one as a design element. :-D I may have to CASE this one.

MaryH said...

Vicki, this is just such a colorful and awesome box to decorate your home for the fall festivities. I don't 'do' boxes, but I can appreciate the planning & intricate detail that went into this splendid one. Love the stitching on the side panel with the punkin face and the wonderful look you've created with the leaves at the top. You'll enjoy it wherever you decide to place it in your home! TFS & Hugs

Oh my stars! Your pumpkin box has me mega-watt smiling all over my face! I don't have a gift punch board (only an envelope that needs far more attention), but if I did, rest assured I'd be making up a 'pumpkin patch' worth of these for my niece, nephew and all their school/daycare pals! Super amazing and ultra cute! Your creativity warms my heart!
