Guys! I just can’t help myself! I’ve caught the ‘pumpkin’ bug early this year and I’m going crazy creating all the pumpkin things! I received my new TrueControl™ Knife Kit in the mail and decided to give it a spin by making some Pumpkin Party Favors and LOVE how they turn how. Plus I’m excited to share a more about the TrueControl™ Knife. I’ve been waiting and waiting for someone to come up with this product for YEARS.
A tool that I can keep in my kitchen and whip out when I need easy, precise cuts for my craft projects. For those moments when I don’t want to get my machine out and for when I need a quick cut. I’m so happy about it I could die!
But without further adieu….here’s how you make these adorable pumpkin favor boxes.
HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN PARTY FAVORS
Kraft Favor Boxes (You can cut these with your Cricut Maker or purchase)
Cricut’s NEW Martha Stewart Explore Air 2 Machine, EXCLUSIVE to Michaels
Orange Cardstock (I used a piece of solid orange and a piece of patterned cardstock)
TrueControl™ Knife Kit
Hot Glue Gun
Place orange cardstock on your Cricut Mat and cut orange ovals from this project, adapted from (this Fall Napkin Ring project) .
Once the pumpkin ovals have been cut and scored, fold them in half!
Grab your TrueControl™ Knife and cut your green felt in 1/2 inch strips.
Now let’s chat about this TrueControl™ Knife. I LOVE IT! It was the perfect tool to create these small pumpkin stems. I could pull out my Maker, but I only needed three tiny stems! The TrueControl is SO precise and allowed me to create the stems in seconds. Plus I’m obsessed with the blade lock that ensures I get a clean cut and I’m a sucker for it’s good grip.
Once you have the one inch strips, cut them again to resemble pumpkin stems.
Take four of the oval pumpkin shapes and hot glue one side of the oval to the popcorn box. Continue to glue oval to oval, until you have four ovals glue together.
Glue the felt stem to the box.
Fill the box with fall treats and enjoy!
Have you caught the pumpkin bug too? I’d love to see what you’ve created!
