This paper creation has been around awhile but I love making this every year. We made this one at my recent downline meeting. Just take a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock (here I used Pumpkin Pie) and cut into 11 one inch strips. We wheeled Bella's Border over the strips in Pumpkin Pie also. Stack together and punch a hole in each end with your Crop-a-dile. Put a brad in one end with a piece of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon through it and put the other end of the ribbon through the other hole...and gently pull. This will create a horse-shoe look. Depending on how tight you pull it determines the height of your pumpkin. It can be tall or more flat, your choice. Tight a knot in the end, and clip ribbon. Now fan out your cardstock pieces to create the pumpkin.
You can add decoration to the top with leaves from your Big Shot and strips of curly cardstock. The leaves were run through the crimper also. These decorations make a great centerpiece for your Thanksgiving Table. Make them in different sizes and create a grouping, or a little one for each table setting filled with a little bag of candy.
