Halloween Countdown - Day 6

Tonight's project is a fun way to use those Spellbinder dies that you've been collecting. No stamping tonight (although you could decorate with stamps if you so desire).

For this project you will need a small container of some kind with a flat lid. I'm using a little clear top, round metal tin. You can buy these about 30 to the case from Wilton - they are usually in the wedding aisle at major craft stores. These are about two inches in diameter. Any flat top container will do.

Cut and emboss several scalloped circles from orange cardstock. You could also use a scallop circle punch. The circles should be slightly smaller than the top of your box.

Use a scoring tool to score down the middle of each circle. They should fold so that the right (top) sides come together.

With adhesive - attach each half circle panel back to back to back. Leave two ends free (i.e. - don't glue them into a full sphere).

Decorate your container how you desire and fill with treats. Then, take the two remaining panels and glue them flat down onto the top of your container. Add a stem and a die cut or punched leaf to finish of your pumpkin container. You may need to "fluff" up your pumpkin a bit.

Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzill, SU, PTI), Patterned Paper (Pressed Petals), Diecuts (Nestabilies - scalloped circles, Quickutz - leaf vine), ribbon, container (Wilton).

Thanks for visiting!
