How to Make a Silhouette Pumpkin Halloween Card
This would make a cute Happy Halloween greeting card to a teacher. It is an easy to make card, and I was able to recycle a piece of cardboard packaging, a magazine, plus all the ribbon sticker was from last year's Michael's Grab Bag.
If you don't have ribbon sticker, you can cut strips of paper and glue them down. You can opt for other silhouette options if you're not interested in a pumpkin - like a ghost, bat, cat, witch, etc.
Total Time: 20 minutes
- white cardboard
- piece of a brown paper bag
- white cardstock paper
- hot glue
- glue stick
- circular object
- X-acto knife
- sticker ribbon (or strips of assorted paper)
- magazine or stickers
- Figure out the card size you want to make. My card measures 8.5x 5.5 inches.
- Measure the front of your card and cut the same size piece from your scrap cardboard or a thick piece of white cardstock.
- With the cut piece of cardboard or cardstock, using a circular object trace 3 circles to resemble a pumpkin shape as your guideline.
- Now with an X-acto knife, using the traced lines as a guideline - cut out the pumpkin silhouette. Note: It does not have to be perfect. Now you can set this aside.
- Back to the front of the card; cut strips of ribbon sticker and stick on to the front of the card.
- Fill up the entire front of the card.
- Hot glue the pumpkin silhouette on top of the ribbon sticker piece.
- Using a piece of brown paper bag, you can cut a piece out to resemble the stem. Glue in place.
- You can now use stickers, or like I did, browse magazines and cut out "Happy" and "Halloween" then glue the words down to complete the card.
