Since her sons usually have some difficulty coming up with a face idea for their jack-o’-lantern, this year I put together a fun booklet they can flip through to get more than 100 different face ideas. I’d like to share it with you … enjoy!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Pumpkin page templates (you’ll need Adobe Reader to open)
- X-acto knife or scissors
- Hole punch
Step 1: Print each page of the pumpkin templates on cardstock. You’ll have 14 individual cards, including front and back cover. (Again, you’ll need Adobe Reader to open)
Step 2: Trim out each card with scissors or an X-acto knife:
Step 3: Starting at black edge, cut each card — excluding the front and back cover — along dotted lines:
Step 4: Punch three holes along the edge of each card, including the front and back cover:
Step 5: Turn each card over and score lightly with an X-acto blade, 5/8″ from the edge of hole-punched side. (This will help the booklet flip better.) Be sure to not cut all the way through! Fold flap towards front:
Step 6: Stack all cards together (no particular order is necessary). Thread ribbon through top and bottom holes, as shown:
Step 8: Place ribbon, as shown, and tie a knot or bow:
Step 9: Flip through your booklet, separating each piece to create more than 100 different pumpkin faces!
Step 10: Happy pumpkin carving!
