3D Project/Big Shot/Gift Item Class/Club - Thursday, September 18

These are the super-cute projects we made at the 3D Project/Big Shot/Gift Item class the other night.....

It was so fun to get in the mood for fall and Halloween - I just love this time of year!!

Here's the first project we made - it's a paper pumpkin (wow, where have i hear that before??).

I learned how to make this awesome pumpkin from Tamie Ackerson at last weekend's Creative Convention.  It's really simple....

Make 4 large Pumpkin Pie bows (yes, bows!) from the Gift Bow Die, cut them in half, then stamp with the "skid marks" from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set and sponge the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink.  Next, make 3 Always Artichoke leaves, also using the Gift Bow Die, stamp them with the smaller "water splotches" from the Gorgeous Grunge set and sponge the edges with Always Artichoke ink.

Next, punch a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch from Chocolate Chip card stock, stamp with the "diagonal lines" from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  Finally, punch two 1 3/4" circle punches for the top and bottom of the pumpkin.

To put the pumpkin together, use your bone folder to curl all of the pieces in the direction you'd like them to go first, then put adhesive on the ends of each of the Pumpkin Pie pieces and add them to one of the circle punches, spreading them evenly around the circle. I thought it was easiest to put 4 on first, like a "t", then add the other 4 in between each of those!.  I did the bottom first, then adhered them to the top circle next.  After this, add your leaves and curl them how you like.  The smaller strands are make using 1/2" strips of Always Artichoke (also stamped with the "water splotches").  Curl those using a pencil or your Paper-Piercing tool, then add them to the top of the pumpkin.  Finally, add that Chococolate Chip Scallop Circle to the top.  I used hot glue to put this piece on the pumpkin (and the rest of the stem, too)

To make the stem, roll up a piece of 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon to the width you'd like and adhere it together with hot glue.  Tie some Linen Thread around the Burlap piece and add a Gold Basic Metal Button.  How cute is that!!

Now, for some fun Halloween treat bags.....

Take a Chevron Treat Bag, cut off 1/4" of the bottom of the bag.  Next, score the bag at 1" along both sides and 1 1/4" along the bottom of the bag (you don't need to score the top of the bag) with your Stampin' Trimmer.  Fold along score lines, then cut along the side score lines from the bottom of the bag up to the first score line to create the bottom flaps of your bag.  Fold the flaps in (making "valley" folds with the sides of the bag) and adhere the bottom together with Retro Fresh Washi Tape.  

Now, to create the tag... 

Take a 2" x 4" piece of Whisper White Card Stock and punch the top with the Angled Tag Topper Punch.  Stamp "Happy Halloween" from the Halloween Street Stamp Set in Tangerine Tango ink.  Then (and this is the fun part!)...  take the end of a pencil eraser, ink it with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and stamp as many polka dots as you'd like!!  Finally, tie a bow with the White & Tangerine Tango Two-Tone Baker's Twine around the bag and add the tag to the bow with some White Baker's Twine.  What a cute bag!!

And here's the last project we made at class...

It's another cute treat Halloween treat!!

This project also uses a Chevron Treat Bag - this time we cut it down to 3 1/2" tall, then made a smaller bag (just like we did above using the washi tape) - you can get 2 mini treat bags out of one Chevron Treat Bag.  We also cut two pieces of Tangerine Tango card stock using the Top Note Die, stamped them with "boo to you" from the Good Greetings Stamp set (get your name entered into a drawing to win this stamp set every time you spend $50 between now and October 31!), then embossed them with the Zig Zag Embossing Folder.  These two pieces were then adhered to either side of our Mini Chevron Bag using Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive.  

Next, we die-cut that cute ghost (from Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper) using the Fun Fall Framelits Dies.  We added his eyes using the 1/4" Circle Handheld punch (and Dimensionals).  Finally, we punched the opening in the treat bag using the Small Oval Punch, tied some Basic Black Chevron Ribbon though the bag and then added a White & Tangerine Tango Two-Tone Baker's Twine tie around that!
