Fall Pumpkin Box

This pumpkin box is so fun and really pretty easy to make!
All you really need is the 2" x 1 3/8" Oval Extra Large Punch.
Start by punching 6 ovals from Pumpkin Pie cardstock. To add a bit of dimension, use sponge pumpkin pie ink around the edges of all ovals. Make the front and back pumpkin panels by placing two ovals side-by-side. Adhere a third oval directly on top in the middle. Repeat for the back panel.
To create the box, start with a 4" square of pumpkin pie cardstock. Score one way at 1" & 3". Turn cardstock and score at 1 1/2" & 2 1/2". Crease the scored lines and then cut along the 1" score lines up to the crease. (There are 4- (1") "lines" that should be cut.) Fold up and adhere ends to make box.
Adhere the box to one of the pumpkin panels. Cut off the bottom edge so it is level with the bottom of box. Repeat on the other side.
Adhere a handle to the box. You can either cut a strip of old olive cardstock (approx. 1/2" x 5 1/2") or you can use the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punchto create a handle (as shown in photo). Create a stem and leaf out of old olive cardstock and adhere to box. Finish off by securing a Glimmer Brad.
Add candy and give to someone special!!
