The Perfect Pumpkin and Candy

This month Perfect Presentation is releasing 6 new items!  That means new packaging templates and cut files just in time for the upcoming holidays.   Today I am sharing a template that is great for any occasion - "Perfect Parcel".  I can imagine it decorated as a sweet Birthday present, but as soon as I saw it, I immediately thought of pumpkins...
 
To make my pumpkin, I sewed lines on the polka dot mats.  I created my own free form leaves, stamped a sentiment on each and used an ink pad to create veins and distressing.  It is finished off with a bow and a button for a stem.  

Now here is where the candy comes in...
If you have never tried using a template before, then today could be your lucky day!  One random commenter on this post will win the template of their choice.  Just leave a comment by Wednesday, September 29th at midnight EST and you could be on your way to creating gift sets for everyone on your gift list!  Want to increase your chances of winning?  Be sure to visit the rest of the design team and leave them a little lovin', as each is giving away a template too!


Plus, if you want more chances to win templates, be sure to play along with my 3-D challenge on Yvonne Yam's blog Do More With Less.  One random participant will win 3 templates of their choice!!!

My pumpkin is also for the following challenges:
Paper Players - Challenge 17 Inspiration photo - ribbon and polka dots
Stamptacular Sunday - Season's Change - Fall colors
Everybody Art Challenge - #109 - Fall
Creative Belli Blog - B embellies - Bow
Mark's Finest Papers - Pumpkin - I know the challenge was to use a pumpkin on a card, but I could not resist linking up...
JUGS - Template Challenge

Have a great day and enjoy checking out what the rest of the DT created!  Such a fun way to start the week.

Smiles,
Julie

  2. oh me oh my! This little pumpkin is just too cute! I love that you made this package into a pumpkin. The ridges/stitching you added is perfect. The top with the bow and button are fabulous as well. I want to make these to give to my daughters teachers for the Fall. I think your pumpkin idea was right on the mark. Thanks for sharing!
