Hey, Pumpkin

This week over at Scrappy Moms Stamps the challenge is to create a 3D project that uses twine and/or a button.  I knew I wanted to use one of the 3D boxes from SVG Cuts.  At first I was going to use the cake slice but I had a hard time scoring it.  I got frustrated at 11:30 at night and decided to try the Christmas Tree Box.  It's shaped just like a cake box but much easier to score.  Here is what I came up with.

A pumpkin pie cake box or according to SVG cuts Christmas tree box.  I used Bazzill paper in string of pearls, tangerine, and mud pie.  Coredinations paper in Chocolate Mouse for the crust.  I scored the Chocolate Mousse paper so it would look like real pie crust.  Inked the edges to give it depth and a warm just out of the oven look.  I punched the string of pearls paper with my Martha Stewart punch and glued it to the mud pie paper.  I thought this made it look elegant and super yummy.  My faux whip cream is a cotton ball, that I pulled apart.  I adhered it to the box with glue dots.  I added a button and created my own twine with embrodery floss and my kids orange marker.  Hey, you can't have every product out there! Then I cut the tag with SCAL inked the edges with StazOn Timber Brown and used the Special Delivery Scrappy Moms stamp set.  I cut the Hey, Pumpkin stamp into two pieces so it would fit on the tag.  Who would have thought the Special Delivery stamp set would have a stamp I could use for Thanksgiving.  Now, what should I fill the box with, left over Halloween treats or a cute Thanksgiving bib for my nephew.  I think I'm going with the bib for my nephew.

Enjoy your weekend.  Next week I will have a yummy pumpkin recipe to share, stay tuned!
