So my Paper Pumpkin class for the September kit is over and I can continue to share what we did as our alternatives - here is the FINAL alternative project from class - an adorable little candy basket.
To duplicate you would use one of green/red treat boxes (or any color you like). Using your snips - cut off the hooked tabs on the box curving, so all sections are alike. Put box together with the adhesive strips; and using a maker - roll each petal down to toward the outside to form a little basket. Punch a hole on two of the petals that are across from each other; and feed the wired raffia through each - bending it into a curve on the outside, so it will not pull back through.
Next we colored three leaves with blends and added the veins with Memento black. Cluster them together with glue dots, and add to the handle with another glue dot or two. Adhere a bow to the cluster, and a gem to the leaf; and you have a great little treat box. I filled mine with caramels. These would be adorable to set out for Fall - or use at each place setting at Thanksgiving!
Here they are all four of my alternatives for the September 2021 kit, featured one at a time over the last several days on my blog. Check them all out - and have fun!!Let me know if you have any questions and stop back soon. ~Maureen
