Thankful for You Pumpkin Box



Happy Tuesday Peeps!!
Today I have a fun little fall project to share with you.
I have had this Pumpkin Box template for awhile and had not used it and when I saw the challenge this week at The Paper Players I decide it was time to pull it out and give it a whirl!!


I think it turned out pretty cute! I printed the template out onto some Pumpkin Pie DSP and  cut it out.
It is super easy to put together, love that fact!
I sponged all the edges with pumpkin pie ink.



The stem is also included in the template and I cut it out of some wild wasabi card stock. The template does include some leaves to cut but I used an old punch I have with some retired DSP.


Here is a little close-up of the top.
I added a bow made with some twine and some tendril I made by curling  a small strip of card stock around a bamboo skewer. The little sentiment is from the Stampin Up "Banner Greeting" stamp set. I added it to a wood toothpick and used my glue gun to add it to the back of the stem.
This will be a special fall treat for a good friend, filled with her favorite candy!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!!
