When you think of the We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board, you probably think of it as a way to create custom gift boxes to house small gifts and trinkets. Well, I am here today to show you how you can turn your DIY gift boxes into fun Halloween decor!

I absolutely love when products can be used for projects outside of their main function. The gift box punch board can create perfect boxes that can also double as pumpkins! That's right they create the perfect base to add a spooky face, a stem, and a coiled tendril!

Since the We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board allows you to create gift boxes in different sizes, this means you can create a ton of different sized pumpkins! Toss these pumpkins on a table or use them as a centerpiece. Just think of all the fun you will have creating your own gift box pumpkins!

To create my larger pumpkin, I used a 12x12 sheet of patterned cardstock and just followed the measurement instructions on the punch board to actually construct my pumpkin. For my smaller pumpkin, I cut a piece of orange construction paper down to 6x6 inches. If you wanted, you could go for longer, leaner punpkins, insead of the cute chubby ones I made. :)

Here's what you'll need:

  • We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board
  • Orange Patterned Scrapbook Paper
  • Tan, Brown, and Black Cardstock
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Tape Runner
  • Scissors

Let's get crafty!

Create a ton of these cute little guys and place fill up your mantle!

If you don't want to use your pumpkins as Halloween decorations, you could still use it as a playful gift box for a friend or even a party favor holder!
