Paper Pumpkin Patch!

Every year I make a few more of these fun paper pumpkins.... they're just tooooo easy and fun to make... here's instructions by Lynn Pratt

Her version uses the Sweet and Sour Specialty 
Designer Series Paper and the Leaves#2 Die for the Big Shot. 

First cut 14 pieces of 3/4" x 6" strips of DSP. 
Using the crop-a-dile punch holes in both ends of each strip. 
Use a jumbo brad and a piece of grosgrain ribbon through one hole. 
Then tie a knot about 2 1/2" down the ribbon.

Thread the ribbon through the other hole and then tie a knot on the outside also.

Spread out your strips to make the pumpkin and then add your leaves!

Of course by  making your strips longer or shorter changes the size of your pumpkin...
go ahead... experiment with it and see how fun it is!!!

And what's really cool is they are super easy to store 
from year to year.. just tuck all the strips back into one stack 
and voila.... done to put away for next year!
