What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact this project won the Martha Stewart contest :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hone your papercutting skills first with simple designs that can be mounted on styrofoam inserts with craft wire. Use search engines for classic Halloween designs such as black cats, witches, bats or owls if you don't have an idea in mind for your project. Watch for craft store sales of artifical pumpkins and stock up for future use. Remember that artificial pumpkins can be painted and/or glittered - but you have to use battery-operated tealights in them - no real flames!
