Workshop was yesterday and this is the first chance I have had to share it with you. Two of the projects you have already seen, but this cute little pumpkin is new.
I had the opportunity to attend one day of a scrapbooking convention with all kinds of lovely things to see, touch, and of course buy. One of the many make and takes available was this cute little pumpkin. When my friend and I would go by this particular area, there was always someone using the stations, but I knew I wanted to try one out. I took a few photos of the samples and did my best.
There are a few other pumpkins on my counter, but this is the one I ended up making for my workshop ladies to play with. I used a piece of dsp cut at 6 x 12 and cut strips measuring 3/4″. You get 15 strips from the sheet exactly, no waste at all. They were stacked, clipped together, and punched with the ever handy crop-o-dile at both ends. A hearty brad was used to keep the strips together, then you just fan them out. Promise, they fan out nicely and curl into this pumpkin. Then stamping and die cutting the fun leaves and place them where you like. Some of the samples had ribbon, you could top it how you like.
Have a creative evening, since the day is pretty much done.
