Thanksgiving Invitations - Pumpkin Tato

These Thanksgiving invitations are inspired by a traditional tato model (a kind of Japanese paper purse), that I modified to make it look like a pumpkin.
You can find the diagrams here.

The pumpkin tato in the picture is made from a 12" square sheet of scrapbook paper. I then added eyelets and ribbons to help keep it closed and to give it a more elegant look.
The invitation inside the pumpkin tato is made from a sheet of cardstock. I printed the details of the event and then cut to size to match the hexagonal shape of the tato (overall size is approximately 7" wide and 5" tall).

Love this! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern and instructions- I plan on folding many of these with a scripture inside to send out with thanksgiving cards.
