I am making the pumpkin and can't seem to be able to make the accordion folded paper to make the circles. I followed the directions and wanted to know what is the easiest way to make the paper into the circles. Please let me know. Thanks

Check out the video for a great trick to creating the rosettes from the folded paper. Another great trick is to gather all of the folds while the accordion circle is standing up, push the top edge into the center and then down onto your table or craft surface. Hope this helps!
