Fall and Halloween Card - finished gourd themed fall cardThis month I have received another magazine addressed to me that I did not order. After browsing these magazines, you can recycle them by creating lots of fall and Halloween cards with the pages inside - the possibilities are endless.


This is one style for a fall and Halloween card I created.

Total Time: 25 minutes



  1. Using scrap paper or a piece of magazine paper, sketch a pumpkin shape and cut out.
  2. Fall and Halloween Card - pumpkin shape cut from scrap paper
  3. Using scrapbook paper/pattern of your choice, fold in half.
  4. Fall and Halloween Card -  sheet of scrapbook paper
    Fall and Halloween Card - folded in half
  5. Trace the pumpkin onto the scrapbook paper. To make your card flip, you need to trace the pumpkin with the stem at the fold.
  6. Fall and Halloween Card - place paper with fold at top
    Fall and Halloween Card - trace pumpkin with stem at fold
    Fall and Halloween Card - trace onto the scrapbook paper
  7. Cut your pumpkin out. Optional: I flipped my card over so the white side is up and the pattern is inside the card where I will write my note.
  8. Fall and Halloween Card - cut out leaving a hinge at top
    Fall and Halloween Card - pattern on the inside of the card
    Fall and Halloween Card - flip so white side is out

  9. I found an image on the magazine that I wanted as the front of my card. Cut the image larger than your card, glue down and go over with scissors to trim.
  10. Fall and Halloween Card - select the image for the card from magazine
    Fall and Halloween Card - cut image out larger than the card

  11. For the stump of the pumpkin, I used brown paper bag paper.
  12. Fall and Halloween Card - trim to fit the front of the card
    Fall and Halloween Card - use paper bag for the stem
  13. For the front of the card, I flipped through the magazine to find words I wanted on the card and cut them out individually.
  14. Fall and Halloween Card - example of text used
    Fall and Halloween Card - cut out words from the magazine for the front of the card
  15. Position the words to create your phrase and glue down. If you cannot find your word(s), you can individually cut each letter to create your word.
