Pretty Little Pumpkins

For my second “wow” project as a Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team member, I decided to do something seasonal—and thought I’d go with pumpkins! They’re easy to make, are quite versatile, and they can be used for many occasions. Think: fall, Halloween, or all year round if the color matches your décor.

Here’s how to make them: Just cut eight identical circles using the Big Shot (item 143263) and one of the circle dies from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies (item 141705).

step-1

Now fold them in half and adhere them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (item 110755).

step-2

To make it look like a pumpkin, cut the bottom of the circles.

step-3

For the stem, cut a small strip from Kraft Cardstock (item 133674).

step-4

Coil the strip from the wide side, twist it, then push it into the top of the pumpkin.

step-5

Next, make the curly vine. Cut a small strip from Whisper White Cardstock (item 100730) and wrap it around a pen to curl it.

step-6

Now adhere the vine to the stem using Mini Glue Dots (item 103683). Our pumpkin is done!

You can, of course, create this pumpkin in different sizes or shapes—such as ovals, for example, using the Layering Ovals Framelits dies (item 141706). You could also make apples; just use small leaves instead of a curly vine.

I hope you liked this little tutorial and that you’ll have fun using it!
