Paper Pumpkins

Here are a couple of fabulous pumpkins I made to go with our Fall and Thanksgiving Decor! They turned out AMAZING, especially the rosette pumpkin! What do you think?

(Use the Rosette Die to score the cardstock, then Sticky Strip to adhere the strips together end to end)
Bottom Rosette: 2 @ 2" x 11"
2nd Rosette: 2 @ 2-1/2" x 11"
3rd: 2 @ 2-3/4" x 11"
4th: 2 @ 3" x 11" and 1 @ 3" x 4"
5th: 2 @ 3" x 11" and 1 @ 3" x 4"
6th: 2 @ 2-3/4" x 11"
7th: 2 @ 2-1/2" x 11"
Top Rosette: 2 @ 2" x 11"

Now, that you've scored your rosettes and adhered them together, punch 1-3/8" circles from cardstock and using the Silcone Pad and hot glue, glue one to each side of each of the rosettes to hold them together. Once you've done that, starting from the bottom, hot glue one on top of the other. Once all of the glue dries, you will be AMAZED at how strong and sturdy this little sucker is! :) 
After all of that, glue on your stem (I made mine with Soft Suede cardstock snipped to look like fringe then rolled). Lastly, glue on leaves made from the Autumn Accents Die & curly tendrils.

I also made this pumpkin from strips of embossed cardstock. Isn't it darling?
