Artiste in August - Pumpkin Box

Welcome to the 28th day of the Artiste in August Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop and  Pamela O'Connor is the blog in front of mine.  We are a group of Close to My Heart Consultants who are making a different project each day using our brand new Close to My Heart Exclusive Cricut Artiste Collection.  Each day we will be focusing on a different shape or box that you can cut out with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.

When I looked to see what I was making today I saw that it is called the Pumpkin Box.  Looking at pg 78 in the Artiste Handbook, the box did not look like a pumpkin to me.  So I went to pg 60 in the Assembly guide, and the box looked kind of squat to be a pumpkin.

But I decided to carry on with an open mind and in looking at my patterned papers I chose the orange patterned paper from the Flirty paper pack for the pumpkin.  I cut my pumpkin out at 5.5".  Then I chose the green patterned paper from Pear & Partridge for my pumpkin leaf and vine.  I really liked these colors together.

Here is my box.

I took a piece of waxy flax and threaded it through the holes in the "sides" of the box.  I tied the sides together with a bow and then took a brad, put it through the vine and then threaded the brad's legs through the top two sides and opened them up.  I had tried to hold the entire box together with the brad and never could get my hand inside the box to open the brad.  I then spent a little time to shape my pumpkin box so that it would not be flat.  This is the best I could do.  The edges are sponged with black ink.  What do you think of my little pumpkin box?
