Saral Wax-Free Transfer Paper

Transferring patterns to pumpkins via the poking method—that is, using a toothpick or some other kind of poker to dot an image onto the pumpkin's surface—can be tedious. Cut transfer time in half by placing a piece of this paper (it works the same way carbon paper does for documents) under a pattern and tracing the design right onto the pumpkin. Red is pictured here, but for use on orange pumpkins, consider using blue transfer paper. Each roll is 12 feet long and 12½ inches wide.
