Project Instructions

Back orange dot, orange lined and brown word papers with white cardstock.

Trim 6 strips each 1 ¼” x 12” from the orange dot and orange lined papers.

Trim 5 strips 1 ¼” x 12” from brown word paper, mix orange glitter with glue and brush each strip with glitter mixture. Let dry.

Punch two scallop circles from any printed paper from kit.

Start gluing each strip edge in a circle pattern onto the backside of one scallop circle. Make sure glue is dry before repeating with the second scallop circle and watch as your pumpkin takes shape.

Cut a strip of green houndstooth paper from kit 1” x 12” and run through crimper.

Mix light green glitter with clear glue and brush strip with glitter mixture. Let dry.

Roll into a circle, pull into an elongated stem and glue in a couple of places to keep in place.

Punch large scallop circle from same stem paper, brush glitter, let dry, glue stem to circle and circle to top of pumpkin.

Draw or trace four fall leaves from same stem paper, repeat glitter process, let dry, adhere back-to-back to create two 2-sided leaves and attach one to each side of stem.

Punch 4 scallop circles from orange dot paper, wet, scrunch and let dry.

Pull apart to create flower and adhere each layer together and then attach to front stem of pumpkin.

Double back 3 different pieces of paper 1” x 12”. Trim a few skinny strips from each piece (they do not have to be the same width). Wrap each around a pencil to create curls.

Glue each randomly around the stem of the pumpkin. Carefully stuff inside of pumpkin with excelsior.

Tips

Seasonal paper crafts if properly packed can be reused year after year.
