3D Pumpkin

This is a project I included in my last newsletter.  I thought it turned out cute and could be used with other Thanksgiving themed decorations on a side table or as part of a centerpiece.

Holiday Best

Chocolate Chip Classic Ink
Old Olive Classic Ink
Crushed Curry Classic Ink
Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write
Old Olive Stampin' Write
Going Gray Stampin' Write

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock: 8 1/2" x 11"
Chocolate Chip Card Stock
Old Olive Card Stock
Crushed Curry Card Stock
Whisper White Card Stock

Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon
Hemp Twine
Pop-up Glue Dots
Mini Glue Dots
1/16" Handheld Circle Punch
Tag Corner Punch

1. Cut one sheet of Pumpkin Pie card stock (8 1/2" x 11") into 3/4" wide strips to form fourteen 3/4" x 8 1/2" strips.

2. Punch hole through top and bottom of strips using Crop-A-Dile.

3. Thread a piece of Hemp Twine through one of the holes and knot the end. Pull the twine up through the other hole, adjust to the depth you want your pumpkin and tie a knot to secure the strips.

4. Fan the strips out evenly. Stamp leaves from your favorite stamp set onto Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Crushed Curry card stock. Cut out and adhere to the top of the pumpkin with mini glue dots.

5. Tie a bow with the Chocolate Chip Ribbon and adhere atop the leaves with a pop-up glue dot.

6. Use the Stampin' Write markers to add color to the Holiday Best stamp, huff on the stamp to moisten it and stamp onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. Use the Corner Tag punch on one end of the tag and the 1/16" punch to pierce a hole in the same end. Add Hemp Twine to the tag and tie around the ribbon.
