Easy 3-D Pumpkins

These 3-D pumpkins were a shoebox swap project from a recent team meeting, which I just got around to putting together. So cute, and perfect for the Friday Mashup challenge #16.

These guys are made by cutting twelve 1" strips of cardstock, punching a Crop-o-dile hole on either end of the stacked strips, attaching both ends with brads and spreading out the strips. I believe my strips were 5" and 6" long. You can use ribbon as well to hold the strips together. Then decorate the top with leaf die-cuts, buttons, ribbon, etc. Spritz and curl a thin strip of Autumn Spice DSP to create a curling vine.

I actually threaded the ribbon through the button on this one. I know, what was I thinking?

Stamps: None; Paper: Cajun Craze textured, Autumn Spice DSP; Ink: None; Accessories: Old Olive and Garden Green buttons, Old Olive ribbon, Linen thread, Brads, Crop-o-dile, Leaves #2 die, Big Shot.

Edit to add, my submission won! I get to be a guest designer next week. Don't forget to play along with me!

Thanks for stopping by!
