Happy fall, y’all! Heather Leopard is here with a tutorial for this quick pumpkin surprise gift trio. I love the thought of giving circle shaped gifts. These are fun gifts for classmates, co-workers, house guests, and more..
These little cuties can be made in minutes with just a few supplies. Let’s take a look at what you’ll need.
- 12×12 Pattern Paper – at least one pattern or an assortment
- 12×12 paper pad
- Clear gift bags
- Twine, ribbon or thread
- Paper Trimmer
First thing you’ll do is cut 1/4″ x 12″ inch strips of paper. You’ll need 6 for each pumpkin. Then, bend them in a circle, starting with the base in the middle and work your way around until almost all of the pumpkin is filled. Staple the rings in place. You can also use a brad to connect the rings but I like using a stapler so the rings don’t move around, which may cause the candy treats to fall out.
Now that almost all the rings are complete, insert a bag of candy inside and then staple the last strip in place.
Next, cut some leaves, or use die cuts. Add to the top with twine and a cute little sentiment. I simply made a few loopy bows and stapled them to the top and added the leaves with liquid adhesive.
Last but not least are the “give thanks” sentiments! I was planning to give these to family at Thanksgiving but my daughters asked if they could give these to their teachers. I guess it’s a good thing these are so quick and easy to make!
