FALL…is almost here! September is just a few days away and (hopefully) bringing cooler weather after a blistering Texas summer.
Although we may not yet have gentle cool breezes, I’m in a fall mood with this sweet pumpkin treat box, featuring the Harvest Hellos bundle. Last week I showed you a sneak peek of this bundle with an apple. Today, I changed the look to a pumpkin…love the fun versatility of this set!
This Harvest Hellos stamp set/punch bundle will be available on September 4th when the Holiday catalog launches!
The lid of the Mini Pizza Box was die cut with a square from the Stitched Shapes dies. I recommend die cutting the DSP layer first, then line up the opening on the lid to lightly trace the square for proper centering. It may take a few passes with the die to cut through the lid.
I added a cellophane square sheet approximately 1/4″ wider than the opening and adhered on the back side of the lid with Tear Tape.
A cute little banner stamped with one of the sentiments from the Harvest Hellos stamp set adds a bit of whimsy to the box.
The pumpkin was stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock then colored along the lines with Pumpkin Pie Blends. Don’t worry if your Blends at first appear dark. Once it dries, it gives a nice shadowed look.
