Origami Pumpkin Card
I found directions to make an easy and cute origami pumpkin (click on link), loved it, and decided to turn it into a fun fall greeting card for family.
First thing needed is orange paper. Who would have guessed that I wouldn't be able to find orange paper in October? I had a brainstorm... Wrapping paper! I found a cute orange print in the clearance bin and set to work cutting it into squares for the folding. This turned out to be a much more economical way to make a dozen cards! To decorate, I made a small slit at the top and glued in a stem, then glued a leave under the top of one of the folds.
The pumpkin stands open in a triangle shape from the side. I glued a photo of my kids at the pumpkin patch onto the back and used a glittery pen to wish everyone a HAPPY HARVEST!
