The instructions said to use a cardboard guide. Did I? No, the small boxes I have lying around already have a re-purpose. Shipping. The instructions said to use a paperback. Did I? No, all the paperbacks I can spare, I trade for others. But...

I have old encyclopedias ready for something like this. I tore off the binding, front and back covers. Sharp box cutter ready, I began cutting a pumpkin shape through the pages. Marley helped.


                                              "What, mom? You's makin' da mess dis time."

So, the result of my labor was not even close to as snazzy and stylish as the DIY instructional. But it's cute. Live and learn!

I think I'll stick to beadwork and polymer clay for now.
