Boo! ……

Sept. 9: Mom worked in her studio yesterday playing with the new pumpkin die from the Be Spooked and Be Stuffed Lifestyle Crafts release.

She used the Handmade alphabet to cut the word ‘BOO’ in the front of the pumpkin. Mom wanted to used a tea light (whatever that is!) with the pumpkin and have the some light shine through. So after she cut ‘BOO’ she save the inside portion of the letters and then backed the word with vellum.

To make the pumpkin stand on it’s own, Mom cut out the pumpkin 3 times for both the large and small pumpkin. She then used strong tape called Sookwang or Scor-Tape on each edge of the pumpkins.

Mom was pleased with how it turned out. I think the battery operated tea light is a nice effect – it flickers like a real candle. See what you think.


Mom loves the green polka dot paper she used for the leaves and the stem. She tells me that she wrapped the stem around a pencil to make it curl.


Mom says these would be cute on the mantel or part of table arrangement. She around mentioned that if she put a bottom on them, they could be used for treats – I’m thinking cookies – I think Mom was thinking candy!

Come back in a few days and Mom will show you a card that she made with one pumpkin.

Take care
