Smiling Jack O Lantern 3D Paper Craft Project
Oh my Craft Family!! This has to be my favorite Halloween decoration I have ever made. If you have not gotten into the craze of 3D paper crafting you must give it a whirl.
Lets start with the size. It is the perfect size for home decor or to decorate your office. Mine ended up near my front door with a few other decorations and creepy cloth to add to the mood of Halloween. In this project I used American Craft Black Textured cardstock. For the pumpkin head I used orange cardsotck that I had in my scrap drawer. I am not sure exactly the color but we have so many great orange cardstock colors in our store I am sure you will find one that will be perfect for your project. You might want to consider not using orange at all. Maybe do a Green stand with a black pumpkin head. You choose the color combination you like best.
Lets talk about where I got this fabulous file. This one came from Simplycraftysvgs.com. I have to stop and brag about this site just a little. Every project and I mean every project I have done of this company comes out awesome. The videos and instructions are easy to follow and the paper engineering is done so well that it makes it hard to mess up. So if you are thinking that these are just too hard to make try a free file from their site first and get hooked like I am.
Above is the picture of the base. Check out the embossing!
