On Saturday, I participated in my first craft fair of the holiday season. These Pumpkin Poop boxes were one of the most popular items at my booth.
I am attaching two files here, so that you can easily make your own poop. The first is the template to make the box, and the second is a sheet of the pumpkin poop poems that will fit perfectly inside your box.
This is a close-up of the inside of the box. I bought the small packages of candy corn at Wal-Mart.
The box is made from Basic Black cardstock and measures about 2-1/2" square. I layered 2-1/4" squares of Ghostly Greetings DSP on the lid.
The pumpkins and the pumpkin faces were created with Sizzix dies and the Big Shot. I added the wiggly eyes for fun.
These boxes would make a great school treat for your children and they are very easy to create.
The other Halloween project that was very popular at my booth was the punched spiders.
I wish I could take credit for these little guys, but it is not my original idea. To make these spiders, you will need:
- Scallop Circle Punch
- Photo Corners Punch
- 1/2" circle punch
- 1/4" circle punch
- York Peppermint Patties (buy extra...they are yummy!)
