This 3D pumpkin in a crate is created utilizing the Cricut project cart, Sweet Tooth Boxes. Yes, it is actually the ice cream cut!

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Cardstock in orange brown and greens
  • Twine
  • Green colored ink
  • Green distress ink
  • Raffia in fall colors

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Once I cut and assembled the pumpkin top and bottom, I bent the scallop edges of the bottom down so it would look more like a crate. I then cut my leaf and vine pieces in two different green colors and sizes, inked them in Forest Moss.
I gave the vines some dimension utilizing a dowel.
To create dimension on the leaves, simply use any rounded edge and press down all along the backsides. When you flip it back to the front, the leaves will look more realistic. It is best to do this on a semi-spongy surface that has some give.
I then adhered the vines and leaves to the pumpkin using a glue gun (but other adhesives would work). I attached the stem by bending the bottom portion and slipping it under the top slit of the pumpkin. I then added raffia around the crate base, stamped my sentiment in Old Olive onto my double layer tag and then added the tag to the pumpkin using the twine. I plan on filling the treat box with the harvest blend of candy corn (the one with pumpkins, gourds and multi-colored corn) that my daughter and hubby love so much for a fun fall treat.
Cut your images from the following cartridges:

•Sweet Tooth Boxes ~ pg. 15: ConeLy1, ConeLy2, ConeLy3 all cut @ 9.5"
•Cricut Thanksgiving seasonal cart ~ leaf with vine and layer @ 1.5" and again at 1.75", pumpkin stem @ 4.53" x2
•Elegant Edges ~ pg. 70: Desgn2 shadow-s @ 2.06 and 2.29

I love, love, love the 3-D pumpkin project but have a couple of questions: 1. from which cartridge did you cut the leaves and vines, 2. why was the elegant Cakes Cartridge listed in cartridges used? Thanks for the help. paperlover
