A pop-up paper pumpkin to download and make!
Fold the pumpkin flat then release it and watch it jump! The project is powered by an elastic band and is perfect for slipping into a book or greetings card. Watch the recipient's surprise when they open the card and a pumpkin jumps out!
Download the pdf to print out the parts.
This model is also available on www.robives.com 

Step 1:

Print the parts page onto medium weight card. 280 gsm is perfect. Score along the dotted lines then carefully cut out the parts. Start by gluing together the two hooked tabs with the black circles face to faces then glue the tab next to them down.

Step 2:

Glue the tabs on the other side together as shown in the picture.

Step 3:

Fit a 50mm thin elastic band between the two hooks.

Step 4:

Press the model flat and glue down the remaining tabs.

Step 5:

Finish off your pumpkin by gluing the stalk into place on the top of the model. Once the glue is dry fold it flat then sharply let it go and watch your pumpkin jump!
