The Great Pumpkin

While most of the items at the swap are cards, there are a few people that just LOVE to make 3D items for us! Here is one of them...
We made this cute pumpkin using the NEW Bigz L Die: Candy Wrapper (#120890 $32.95). We used two of them taped together in a circle. Fold the bottom part in to make a flat bottom and lace ribbon through the holes in the top and pull while pushing the flaps inside of the pumpkin.

You can barely see it in this picture but the other item we got to use from the mini catalog was Glimmer Brads. They can be found on page 36 of the Holiday Mini.

This project had a few cute ideas and tips to go along with it:
#1 - The leaves were made by punched a Scalloped Oval and then running it through the crimper. Put a little fold in the middle and you have a cute leaf!
#2 - The creator of this project, Diana Ball-Seitz, cut the 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in half so that it was skinnier. I love this idea! It gave a little fray to the ribbon that is totally cute!!!
