Pillow Box Pumpkin Bucket and Card

Happy Friday everyone!!! This week has been a busy one and sure did go by fast but I'm happy that I was able to get some things done so that my kids are ready to go back to school.
Today I have a Halloween Pumpkin Bucket that I made from my Stampin' Up Sizzix Pillow Box die and a card that I created using Beate's Weekend Sketch. For the card I used the stamp set Pumpkin Patch which is in the new Holiday Mini Catalog coming out next Tuesday. Wait until you see all the fun new goodies in this Mini, your going to love it!


Supplies: Pumpkin Patch, Weathered BG, Grateful Greetings, Cast-A-Spell DSP, Nestie, Ribbon, Button, Piercer, Linen thread, Pop dots. Colors: Basic Black, Pumpkin Patch, Old Olive, Whisper White.

I came up with the idea for this Pumpkin Bucket after looking at my Sizzix dies I had, I was trying to figure out what kind of 3-D Halloween treat I could make when it popped into my head. This bucket took no time at all to make and was fun to put together. What you need is 3 Pillow Boxes cut, creased and sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink, one handle 1" x 11", one large Coluzzle circle (4" in diameter)for inside bottom, three 1" x 4" strips of Pumpkin Pie (only 2 are pictured here but I used 3) and some punched out pieces for the face.



Step one: Cut all pieces and crease and sponge the three Pillow boxes.
Step two: Use Tacky Tape and tape the three boxes together end to end then pick one side to be the top of your bucket and cut the three rounded tabs down so that all of the top of the edges match.

Step three: Apply Tacky Tape to the very ends on one side of the 1" x 4" strips and tape them to the bottom tabs of your bucket (as shown in photo).

Step four: Place cut Coluzzle circle in bottom of bucket and glue on punched pieces for face (I scored the hand cut triangle for nose and used the small photo corner punch for the mouth).

Step five: Make elongated punches on side of bucket using the Horizontal Slot punch and attach handle. I fed the handle strips through the slot and folded it over about a half inch then added a brad to secure the handle.


Thanks for stopping by!

OMG! This is INCREDIBLE! I love finding other uses for dies and punches and this is over the top! How big is that circle you cut? (What's the diameter?) I'll use my Circle Scissors Plus to cut one out...maybe even a second one to cover up the bottom too. My mind is just racing now. Thanks for the inspiration!!

WOW!! What an AWESOME tutorial!! I love both projects ~ the card and the bucket!! Thank you for the inspiration.

I have two quick questions for you.

Did you stamp the weathered background stamp on the pumpkin pie cardstock using pumpkin pie classic ink? I'm amazed at how well it shows up.

Also, did you sponge the edges of the bucket on pumpkin pie cardstock using pumpkin pie classic ink? I always thought you had to use a darker color ink on the paper you are sponging to get such dramatic results.

Thanks for your help and the inspiration!!
