Scan the pumpkin template into your Brother ScanNCut and cut out from orange card. Curl the sides of your pumpkin around a pen – the wide barrel on a Promarker is ideal.
Cut two inside stalks and glue together for double thickness. Fold along the score lines to create the stalk, then glue together leaving the tabs open. Attach to the centre of your pumpkin.
One by one, bring the sides of your pumpkin up and glue to the top of the stalk. Work in opposite sides, as this will ensure that your pumpkin sides are evenly spaced. Leave to dry.
Cut two narrow, tapered strips of green card. Wind the strips around the stylus from your Scan N Cut to create a tight spiral. These are the vines for your pumpkin.
Attach the vines first, then cut the leaf template from patterned paper and fold along the score lines to give it shape. Glue the leaf on top of the vines, and roll up some kraft card for a stalk.
Scan and cut the two bat templates from black card. Lay the bats on a protective surface then spritz with Pearlywinks. Cut some more bats from patterned paper, for approximately 22 in total.
Fold along the score lines to give your bats shape. Start with a mountain fold in the centre of the body, then alternating valley and mountain folds as you work out towards the end of the wings.
Scan and cut the cobweb template, then attach to the back of an embroidery hoop. Arrange the pumpkins and bats around the front of the hoop, and glue in place with a hot glue gun.
