I was going to make a grouping of pumpkin boxes, including trying one in a larger size, to have them as a centerpiece on the table. I thought they would make a great place to keep little treats under wraps and be a pretty tablescape at the same time! However, I had some difficulty with my Silhouette Studio software, so I reverted to using Make The Cut with my Cricut and just made one for now. I hope to find time to figure everything out and make more later this week!
Here's the one that I did make, and I LOVE it!!
I used the Glitter Paper from Close To My Heart because it's my favorite right now. It combines the nice bold color of the American Crafts glitter cardstock, but with a thinner weight, making it MUCH easier to work with without it creasing where you don't want it to. Not quite as smooth as the the Pow! glitter paper from AC, but the colors of that are more muted than I like.
I just love the details that Adela included in this file. The leaves are a great shape, and that vine is the perfect finishing touch!
I creased the leaves down the center and curled the sides back with the back end of the same quilling tool I used to roll up the stem. I sponged on some coordinating ink with a sponge dauber to add more depth and dimension.
