Fall is in the air, can you feel it!!!
Today I am going to share with you how to make a really easy pumpkin using Xyron Adhesive, Core'dinations Nostalgic Kraft Core Papers and Petaloo Flowers Ribbon.
I began by cutting two different shades of the orange from the Nostalgic Paper Pad on my electric die cut machine using an oval shape that measured 5 3/4".
Once cut...I ran them through my Cut N' Boss using Teresa Collins Love Triangle Embossing Folder.
Sand lightly with Core'dinations Hook and Loop Sanding Block and dust with the Cleaning Cloth that comes in the Sand It Set from Core'dinations.
Take a piece of the darker orange Core'dinations cardstock, punch using a 3 1/2" circle punch and glue using your Xyron Glue Stick to a piece of cardboard.
Turn over, using your Teresa Collins Mega Tape Runner apply adhesive to back of circle along the out side edge.
Begin by placing the darker orange oval to the adhesive.
Repeat with the lighter orange ovals, until the circle is covered in strips.
Add another 3 1/2" circle over the card board with your tape runner, this is the bottom circle of your pumpkin.
Flip over so you will see the kraft side of the strips.
Punch a 1 1/2" circle and cover it with your Teresa Collins Mega Tape Runner, once the circle is covered bring the dark orange strips to the top of the and press it to the circle. Repeat with the lighter orange oval, continue till all strips are attached to the top. Cover the oval strips with a pretty doily die cut.
Make a pretty bow using Petaloo Crochet Lace Ribbon and attach it to the top of the pumpkin.
Add Petaloo Flowers and Faux Dried Berry Clusters to the top of pumpkin using Xyron Adhesive Dots.
Here is a closer look at the flower clusters on the pumpkin...
