How to Create a Decorative Geometric Pumpkin

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I created to be used as a home decor piece using the Geometric Diecut and the center die from the Sunflower Diecut as a flower. Let’s get started!

First, I applied Adhesive Sheets to one side of the Mat Board, removed the protective sheet from the adhesive sheet and carefully placed the patterned cardstock into the mat board. I placed onto the Geometric Diecut, ran through the Diecut Machine and cut two sides and two tops.

I slowly glued the edges of the geometric die to the top and bottom dies.

The second geometric die I adhered to the flap of the other die and slowly glued to the top and bottom of the dies to create the “pumpkin”.

I went to the woods and searched for the perfect “stem” for the pumpkin. I found a small branch and had my husband use a handsaw to cut it down for me.

I adhered the stem to the top of the “pumpkin” before cutting out two centers from the Sunflower Diecut. I crushed both dies before shaping and gluing on top of each other. I added a gem to the center, before adding to the top of the pumpkin along with lace, fall berries picks, mini pinecones, moss and cording bows.

This was a fun project that came together rather quickly and I hope this has inspires you to give the Geometric Diecut a try.
