Pumpkin Sliceforms

Finally got together something Halloween-ish.  

I created the pattern for this by what I would have to call the brute force method (because I don't really know what I'm doing).

 
First I made an openwork one, and put a little battery tea light in it. (Picture could be better. I took it inside, with the flash.)  Tutorial and files are here.



Then I made a closed one. I don't know which one I like better!  Tutorial and files are here.

Oh yeah, best of all, both of these pumpkins fold flat for mailing.
