3D Pumpkins With Witches Hat

3D Pumpkins With Witches Hat

Hi there Core Fans!

It’s Joann and I am so excited to be here today to share a fun 3D table top decoration which I think is perfect for the upcoming Halloween season! The panels on the top and bottom pumpkins were cut using the fantastic Core Cardstock and are both embossed and sanded using the “must-have” Sand It Block.  For something different, I debossed the middle pumpkin.  I just love how this gives the entire project a total Vintage feel!

Here is a closer look at my flowers.  I used both a Spellbinders die cut that I also embossed and a rolled rose that I tore by hand for an extra spooky flower!

To make this project, follow the detailed instructions from SVGCuts to make your top pumpkin which was cut to scale.  The middle pumpkin is made by increasing the scale of the pieces called Jack and Jack Panels by 110% and the bottom pumpkin has the pieces increased by a scale of 120%.   You can increase the scale by whatever size you like and I find it easier if you start from the largest size you want to create and then work your way down so you are sure that the project will fit onto you paper that you are going to cut from.   Another tip would be to cut your pieces on the reverse side of the paper that you want to use and for the score lines set the depth of your blade to 1.  This will give you a guide to follow when scoring on your Scor board without all those little scor lines showing through!  For those of you with a Cricut, there is actually a scor blade which you can use for your scor lines.  The completed project is almost 15″ high and 6″ wide.  After the panels for the pumpkins have been cut, embossed and sanded rub them on the edge of your table a bit to slightly curve the paper.  This will make the assembly easier!
