It's starting to feel like Fall here. I do not have my Fall decorations out yet so the file I chose for today's post is something that can be easily made to use as Fall decor. HERE IS A LINK to the 3D Pumpkin Trio
This shows how you can fold them up and store them.
Here are a few different photos in different parts of my house.
This file is easy to work with. I cut 6 of the pumpkins out for each size, small, medium, and large but you can make them fuller if you would like to by cutting a few more. The most difficult part for me was choosing what papers I wanted to use but it was also fun to look through my patterned papers. I used some patterned and some solid and many of them were scraps I had. Instructions are included with this file. Then I cut 6 half sides out of the patterned papers to glue around the inside of the pumpkin.
You are just going to be gluing the pumpkins together and then gluing the patterned papers where you want them. Then you will cut out the stems, leaves, and curly thing (not sure what that is called) :) I cut a small slit in the bottom of the stems and slid them over the top and used a drop of glue to glue down. Then you glue the curly thing to the leaf and the leaf to the stem. If you get this file and have any questions, please feel free to contact me here or on Facebook and I'll be glad to help you. I used Brutus Monroe glue and I am extremely happy with it. It dries super quick!
You can also decorate these pumpkins with Halloween papers. I think tying some black tulle around the top would look awesome. You can put accessories on it such as spiders, etc. I considered doing this but I need to get Fall projects out of my system first before Halloween.
There are also some printable sentiments included with this file.
If you are here then you came from Tina Goodwin's blog and I am your last stop. If you would like to start from the beginning, here's a link to Regina Easter's blog, owner of The Cutting Cafe.
