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 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.
