Paper Pumpkin Parcels

Paper Pumpkin Parcels 

If you’re anything like me, you love giving gifts and taking extra care to present them in a fun, inventive way. This Fall I found a super cute and easy idea to wrap small items that adds the perfect seasonal touch. The best part is that it’s appropriate for all ages and can be filled with jewelry (my personal favorite), candy, gift cards, or any of your loved ones favorite trinkets. To complete the craft, you will need the following:

Orange Tissue Paper

Green Tape (Craft, Electrical or Painter’s Tape work well)

Pencil

Scissors

9” Round Pan

Small Gift Items

 

Begin by layering two pieces of the orange tissue paper on top of each other.

Using the cake pan, trace a circle onto the tissue. I found turning the pan upside down gave you a smoother edge and cleaner trace. If you don’t have a cake pan available, anything with a similar size diameter will work fine.

Cut your tissue to create the base of your pumpkin.

Lay the gift item you’ve chosen in the center and begin folding the pumpkin upward to create the shape.

Twist the pumpkin to begin forming the stem, pulling and moving the tissue to make a more round, full look.

Once you have the pumpkin exactly how you want it, wrap the green tape around the stem to complete the look.
