Pop up Halloween fun

Not wanting to sound like a broken record, I will not tell you how excited I am about my post today!
Maybe this has been done before and if so, that's ok...but this card design I did not do any GOOGLE searches to help me at all!  It is 100% me and my crazy mind.
It is my pop out Pumpkin Card/Decoration.


I have seen a lot of people doing he 3-d pumpkins from normal circles and then using them as decorations. I did not just want to do what everyone else is doing.


What I did here was to 1st, not use circles but a Scalloped Oval.
I really wanted it to look like a honeycomb pumpkin and asked my 15yo son how he thought I could do it.  He said I couldn't!  But I proved him wrong!!


With a little creative sewing and hot glue, I did it.


Another secret?  My bats!  All I did was to use the Hearts die, fold  a heart in half and then cut the top off the heart.  When you open the paper up, you have yourself a bat.


I had so much fun making this and think I might get a frame and just turn it into a Halloween decor item!
This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today's post!
Be sure to join us tomorrow as we reveal October's new die releases!!
