Thanksgiving Pumpkin Boxes - Fleurette Bloom DT Project

Hi everyone,

Today I'm sharing my latest DT project for Fleurette Bloom. Although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, I simply couldn't resist making Fleurette's cute little pumpkin boxes from the Harvest Happenings 3D SVG kit!  I just love the colours of fall (again not something we see much of here in the Sunshine State), so I was thrilled to use some lovely fall papers for a change.




For the tag, I resized the leaf place setting files from the same kit and sprayed them with some Perfect Pearls mixed with water for a touch of shimmer. Whilst the leaves were still wet, I crinkled and curved them a bit and then dried them with a heat gun.  I think it gives them a more natural look, don't you?  

I did the same for the leaves on top of the boxes and then ran the vines through a crinkle machine before I curled them.  As a final touch, I added some natural twine around the stems and grouped the boxes together with ribbon and some more twine.
I'm really pleased with how my trio turned out and so happy that I decided to do this project even though we don't celebrate Thanksgiving. I hope that I've inspired you to make some too. 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving!
