Happy Halloween

This fun little pumpkin was taken right from the SU Demonstrator site - great reason to become a demonstrator! Beside a discount and other special priviledges, great project ideas, too. If you are interested, feel free to contact me, love to have you aboard :) Now for our pumpkin...Take 2 sheets of the 'orange' of your choice and decorate. I used Tangerine Tango cardstock and inked up my Jumbo So Swirly wheel in Pumpkin Pie and wheeled across my paper. Cut 1"x11" strips (I used a total of 14 - more strips will kreate less space b/w each strip). Punch hole through bottom and top of strips, using Crop-a-Dile to punch through all layers would be easiest. Knot a piece of Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain (approx 6") and thread through holes; knot top of ribbon and then spread your strips apart to kreate this adorable pumpkin. Embellish as you wish! I used glue dots to adhere an Old Olive bow to the top and added two leaves stamped in Old Olive on Old Olive and used paper snips to cut them out and then place them next to the ribbon. Would be cute little center pieces in different sizes for Thanksgiving too or make them a bit smaller and add some name tags for place settings! So Fun!

Happy Halloween everyone!! Enjoy your day :)

Happy Halloween, Kim.

Fabulous job on the pumpkin. I, too, meant to give that a try, but didn't get around to it.
