The new INKcredibile Challenge is in full swing and I finally have my entry completed. Yay!
The challenge is to make something for someone you don't know, and give them a little R.A.K. Or if you prefer, and A.K (Act of Kindness) if it's someone you do know. Isn't that a sweet idea? So great at this time of year when we have loads to be thankful for.
Even though Halloween is behind us, that doesn't mean we have to leave pumpkins behind just yet. I know it seems that we go straight from Halloween to Christmas, but I just adore all the colors and smells of fall.
So with that in mind, I decided to use some iPaper and make a little paper pumpkin and pair it with some candy kisses as a gift for my cousin who will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner.
I printed out this pattern School Girl Plaid-Goldenrod and then sent it though my printer again, and printed a coordinating pattern (Earthy Tartan) on the other side. I doesn't show up in the photo, but I didn't want it to be white on the inside.
To make the pumpkin, you will need 11 strips of paper 1" x 6" with a hole punched at either end of the paper. Then just run a ribbon through one end and knot it. Run the ribbon through the other end, leaving a small piece at the top for a stem. Then fan out the papers and add paper leaves.
I wanted to show off the shiny kisses in all their autumn glory, so I packaged them up in a clear box with a ribbon that had gold accents.
I used a scrap of the Earthy Tartan for my tag and the leaf image is from the stamp set Fall in Love.
Thanks for visiting the blog today and I hope you are inspired to do something kind for someone during this season of thankfulness:)
