Let’s Make This!
Step 1. From the Mini Succulent Terrarium die set, die cut two each of the barrel cactus shapes from each shade of orange cardstock.
Step 2. With the Distress Inks, ink the edges of all shapes using the i-Brush Blender Brush.
Step 3. Use the flat side of the i-Press Burnisher tool to press along the center crease line of each shape and fold.
Step 4. Starting with the largest shape, apply a line of liquid adhesive down the crease line and adhere the next smaller shape. Continue to stack all four shapes.
Step 5. Repeat with the same colored cardstock to create a second identical pumpkins.
Step 6. Cut a thin, 3″ strip of green cardstock with one end slightly narrower than the other. The wider end is approximately 3//8″ and the narrower end is approximately 1/8″ wide.
Step 7. Using the i-Clik Die Pick, start wrapping the thinner end of the green strip around the die pick leaving the wider end unwrapped.
Step 8. Adhere the wide end to the back side of one pumpkin.
Step 9. Adhere the two pumpkins together, back to back to give a finished look on both sides. Repeat making as many pumpkins as desired.
Step 10. Wrap the styrofoam shape with the brown paper bag scrap and place it into the bottom of the pot.
Step 11. Insert a toothpick into the bottom of each pumpkin and arrange into the pot supported by the styrofoam shape.
Step 12. Stamp the sentiment “Happy Autumn” using clear VersaMark ink. Apply Perfect Pearls and let dry.
Step 13. Use the wide label die from the Apothecary Labels set and die cut around the sentiment. Adhere to the front of the pot.
Step 14. Die cut several leaf shapes from the Geometric Wreath set and adhere to the toothpick stems to hide them in the pot.
