Punched Thanksgiving Pie


I saw this punched pie on Andrea Waldorf's blog and I just had to try it! Mine is slightly different from hers but what a great idea!

Supplies Needed:

Stamps:
Celebrate everything(#114942)

Paper:
ruby red
so saffron
more mustard
chocolate chip
creamy caramel
going gray
whisper white

Ink:
Chocolate chip

Accessories:
scallop oval punch(#114889)
wide oval punch(#112082)
horizontal slot punch(#105089)
circle cutter
Scallop circle #2 big shot die
white gel pen

Directions:
To make weaved background start with a so saffron and ruby red piece of paper, each about 4"x5.25".
Cut strips of paper out of both of them as thick as you want your weave to be. Cut one horizontally and the other vertically. Mine are 3/8" wide.

Weave one paper through all the others and glue all the ends together so it will be easier to weave the rest through.
Then just one at a time weave the paper through over and under, opposite each time.


Once I got them all through I glued all of the edges so it would stay together, then trimmed the excess. I did it a little uneven so it didn't look too perfect.

Next punch out a piece of creamy caramel paper with the scallop oval. Put it inside the wide circle punch and punch off the top of it to make the top of the pie shape. See below.

Cut a choc. chip rectangle 1.75"x 1" or so, does not have to be exact. Put it in the wide oval punch and round one of the long sides.

Then cut the sides at an angle so they look like the base of the pie. Below is what the pieces should look like. You will also need a large oval out of going gray.

Out of ruby red you are going to punch 4 pieces using the horizontal slot punch. Then with a scissors I angled the ends of one side.
All off the pie pieces got edged with chocolate chip ink using a dauber.
Then with the white gel pen I added a little extra detail like below.

Glue the top onto your pie and all the pieces together like in the photo.
I used the scallop circle die and the big shot to get the large more mustard scallop circle and then the circle cutter to cut the white inner circle.
I stamped celebrate with chocolate chip ink on white paper and edged it with choc. chip. I also used the dauber on the weave to make it look a little more distressed.
Then you just stick it all together!
