From all of us here at Pebbles, we hope you have a fabulous day celebrating with those you love most. Enjoy the turkey, pumpkin pie and stuffing! (And if you have leftovers, don’t forget that you can give them away or keep them for yourself in these perfect take out boxes!)
Now that Halloween is over, I can finally dedicate my energy to thinking about the upcoming feast of Thanksgiving. And with that feast comes leftovers. Glorious leftovers.
This is the one time of year I don’t mind having my fridge stuffed full of last night’s meal. But alas, sometimes those leftovers need to be sent home with friends and family. Today I am sharing a simple takeout box that you can mass produce with ease. Wrap each box with a piece of patterned paper and send those leftovers away in style.
Now let’s get back to looking at the boxes. Each box is die cut from textured cardstock and is wrapped with a piece of patterned paper. This tuck and fold style box stays together without the wrap, but the wrap makes it extra pretty.
This project is great for all of those leftover patterned paper strips you have laying around. Trim a strip of patterned paper to create a band around each box. Choose fall-themed colors or use anything you have on hand. Hop on over to my blog to see how I used the remaining turkey die cuts to make cute tags and labels.
These tuck and fold boxes are super easy to open and close, making it really easy to stuff them full of delicious leftovers. Be sure to line the box with parchment paper or wrap leftovers in a plastic bag before putting them in the box.
To make the takeout boxes, you will need two sheets of 12″x12″ cardstock. Die cut two box pieces and adhere them together with This to That double sided super sticky red tape. I like to use this tape when I am making 3-D projects.
After you have adhered the two box pieces together, you will fold it into a box shape. Hold the box together by adhering a few pieces of transparent tape on the inside of the box. The rest of the box is held together with tucks, tabs, and folds.

Hello there! It’s Becki, here to share with you a set of cards I created shaped as Pumpkins using the Home+Made collection. These cards were so simple to make and I think that they’re adorable!
I cut these cards using my Silhouette. I cut all the bases out of kraft cardstock and then cut an additional piece to use as a template when cutting the burlap. I simply wrote on the back of the burlap with a pencil and cut the pumpkin out of the burlap with sharp scissors.
For this card I simply added a bit of burlap and some glitter tape to the middle of the pumpkin as well as the sentiment tag to the stem.

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.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hi there! It’s Wendy Sue Anderson here with you today, sharing a really easy (and FUN!) Jack O’lantern Halloween Banner. Using just a few supplies and taking a limited amount of time, you can create a banner just like this one for yourself! The best part? It’s easy enough for the kids to help with!!
Here’s how to make your own:
Step 1: Using the Homemade Banner Dies, cut as many flags as you want for your banner. I used papers from the Thirty-One collection and the Home+Made Collection.
Step 2: Use the small die to cut triangles for the eyes and noses – the pieces are meant to be folded in half, so you’ll have to use scissors to cut the diamond into two triangles.
Step 3: Now use a small circle punch to cut some gold circles from the gold striped specialty cardstock.
Step 4: Now it’s time to think out of the box and use some of the letters and punctuation from the gold thicker sheet!
Step 5: Build the Jack O’Lantern faces using all of the pieces together!
Step 6: Add the gold decorative tape across the top of each banner, punch holes in both sides and string them all together. Hang them up and enjoy your spooky pumpkins!
