Halloween is coming soon! Jack-o-lanterns are a fun tradition and can easily be personalized — don’t be afraid to make changes to the patterns!
Materials needed: Pattern* (provided below), 8.5” square of paper and scissors
Optional: Paper punch, paper clips or staples to hold the patterns on top of the folded paper (remember to staple in areas that will be cut away)
*Note: Some people choose to print out the pattern and use it on top of the folded paper (see video); others use the pattern as a general guide and cut freehand. The choice is yours!
The red dashed line on the pattern indicates an access cut used to cut out the interior space, the eye. Alternatively, the eye can be punched out with a paper punch — there are a wide variety of sizes and shapes available!

This snowflake may look much easier than the Owl Snowflake from last week, but the curly-Q is an advanced cutting skill. Don’t worry! I have a trick to share with you: you can use a paper punch to help you with the inside curve.
Paper type makes a huge difference in the ability to successfully cut curly-Qs! Newspaper weight is an excellent choice for beginners.
