Happy October! Amanda here today with a darling set of pumpkin gift boxes that will charm the pants off of your friends and family. I love making pumpkin crafts because they are so versatile. You can use them for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any fall occasion.
I picked several of my favorite yellow-orange papers from my Pebbles collections and got going. Let me tell ya, the Birthday Wishes collection is the gift that keeps on giving. Two of these orange papers came from that collection. I think I have used that collection for more non-birthday projects than birthday projects. It is just so versatile. I used my gift box punch board to make the boxes which made this project both fast and easy.
I added some warmth and texture to each box by wrapping them with a piece of jute twine. I tied on a pair of die cut leaves and inserted some paper spirals to mimic a pumpkin vine. If you don’t have a die cutting machine, cut a pair of simple leaves by hand.
I was able to make and assemble these boxes in a snap with the WRMK gift box punch. No fancy die cutting machines or tools required. I picked three different papers, cut them to size according to the chart on the punch board, and got to scoring and punching.
Create paper spirals by tightly wrapping a narrow strip of paper around a round pencil. Hold in place for a few seconds and release. This will leave you with loose spiral. To make a tighter spiral, secure the paper to the pencil with a bit of tape, lightly wet the paper, and let dry completely.
