Day 9 of 13 Spooky Halloween Projects - Pumpkin Card with matching Pumpkin Ghirardelli box

Here’s the card info.  Use the Very Vanilla notecards (super easy).  

Use the woodland embossing folder by folding the card and putting the whole card through the big shot.  Usually I do just the front but I really liked this spooky forest look. 

Punch 2 banners from the Spooky Cat designer paper both 1 ½ wide, one is 4 and the other 4 1/2, flag with the triple banner punch.  Add to the front of the card.

Punch a label from solid black cardstock.  Stamp and punch the Halloween label and put on the front of the card. Layer them together with the black label vertical and stamped one horizontal.  You could if you wish cut the black in half and adhere to the back of the other punch so the ends poke out a little (we’ll do that in a later project).

Attach to the card front.  Add some wink of Stella into the trees (as I did) or glitter dots or black rhinestones (I didn’t this time) if you wish.  Stamp a greeting on a Very Vanilla piece about 3 x ½ and then put inside the card. 

Now make the matching fold up box

Cut the Pumpkin piece of the designer paper 9 x 4, scored at 3 ¾ and 5 ¼ on the long side and 1” on each of the short sides.

Fold and burnish the bag on the score lines so you have firm creases. 

Fold the corners taking the corner that is 4 1/2” from the top edge and pushing it up to the side.    First photo shows the first corner being made, second shows me creasing this corner firmly, then you see 2 corners done and then the whole bag.   Once you have folded 4 corners the bag can lie flat so you can make a bunch and store flat until you need them, then fill and accessorize

Close with a gold clip (or you could punch a 1/8 hole and tie with ribbon or twine) and stamp and punch out a Halloween greeting with matching label punch.  This box holds 2 chocolates just perfectly!
