A Silly Little Project

Memory Box-Halloween-Dies-Pumpkin-Jack o' Lantern-Jean Okimoto

Hi - Jean Okimoto here again - with a project to make you smile.  Or laugh, and comment that I need to get some help!  

It started with a seasonal craving for cheese puffs.  I love how they resemble the ribbed texture of pumpkins.   You may think we ate just a few and used the rest of the bag for projects.  Not true. 

See the great collection of Memory Box dies, stamps and papers.

Attach Scor-Tape to black felt and diecut Perky Pumpkin Face 98421.  Be sure to use good felt - like the wool blends sold at Impress - for best results, without the little fuzzies that cling to the edges.  Attach the pieces to a mason jar.  Add the cheese puffs, before they're gone.

Diecut Blooming Rosettte 98121 from Moss felt.  Gather the straight edge using heavy duty thread and long running stitches - about 1/2" long.  Tie it securely into a circle.  Glue a strip of felt along the sides of the jar lid.  Attach the rosette. 

Attach Scor-Tape to Moss felt and diecut the Blooming Rosette Center.

Twist 4 strands of 26-gauge gold wire together. Twist them around a paintbrush to create tendrils.  Attach the tendrils and center to the rosette.  

Great news...we've added another Christmas with Poppystamps class to the schedule at the Tukwila Impress.  It's from 11:00 to 1:00 on Saturday November 2.  Six great festive cards, lots of techniques - and giftbags too!  Space is limited to 7 more students because there are 2 other classes there that day - please call ahead to save a seat if you can join us.  It's 206 901.9101.

Thanks for visiting!








Oh how cute! What a creative idea! Of course if I had the cheese puffs, well, I wouldn't because I would have eaten all of them before having a chance to put them in the container! Sheeeeesh! Thank you for thinking outside the box, Jean!

Almost ate them all before I filled the jar- there was just 1 extra piece left. Scary!
