Instructions

  1. Plug in glue gun.
  2. Punch twenty 1" circles out of cardstock or patterned paper. (Note: color doesn't matter, as they will not be seen once pumpkin is completed.)
  3. Trim cardstock or patterned paper (for pumpkin) to the following: (2 pieces) - 1 1/2" x 12", (3) - 2 3/4" x 12", (3) - 3" x 12", (12) - 3 1/4" x 12", (3) - 3 1/2" x 12", (3) - 2 1/2" x 12", and (2) - 1 3/4" x 12".
  4. Ink edges of cardstock if desired.
  5. Starting with the three 3 1/2" x 12" pieces score at the 1/2" marks, adhere ends together either with a tape runner or staples, and create a rosette. (Rosette How-To Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oort4Bw0CcY) This will be the center rosette in the pumpkin.
  6. Continue making rosettes, using the following pieces to create rosettes, scoring at the 1/2" marks: (2 pieces) - 1 1/2" x 12", (3) - 2 3/4" x 12", (3) - 3" x 12", (3) - 3 1/4" x 12", (3) - 3 1/4" x 12", (3) - 3 1/4" x 12", (3) - 3 1/4" x 12", (3) - 2 1/2" x 12", and (2) - 1 3/4" x 12". A total of 10 rosettes will be made. (Note: Number of rosettes can be changed to alter the look of the pumpkin.)
  7. Adhere rosettes together to create a pumpkin, using glue gun or glue dots.
  8. To create the stem, cut three 1 1/2" x 3" strips of brown paper or cardstock using the fringe scissors.
  9. Roll the first strip into a tight circle, and adhere then next strip using the glue gun. Keep adding strips as desired. Adhere stem to pumpkin.
  10. Cut 1/8" strips of green patterned paper or cardstock and wrap around a pencil to curl. Adhere to stem.
  11. Stamp and emboss leaves, cut out and adhere to top of pumpkin.
  12. Spray with Perfect Pearls if desired.
