5 Thankful days of Thanksgiving projects from papermadeprettier, project #5

Are you enjoying these projects? I hope so! If you missed the first 2 projects, click here: 5 Thankful Days Project #1.  I will post two projects a day for 5 days so that when you love them and want to make them, you will have plenty of time to make yours before the turkey comes to town! 

DAY 3:
Project #5
Paper Pumpkin

This paper pumpkin was originally designed by Julie Davison, another very talented demonstrator. It is just so clever!  AND simple to make!
Stampin' Up supplies used:
paper: 8 1/2"x11" old olive card stock, sweater weather designer series paper. 
Big Shot: autumn accents bigz die
embellishments: glimmer brads (brights collection), linen thread, candy dot brad base
tools: paper piercing tool
adhesives: glue dots

Cut Designer paper into 10 strips 6"x1". Stack papers together, punch a small hole centered about 1/4" in from the end through them all (I use a large tool called a cropadile for that - not Stampin' Up). Stick brad through the end of one hole, colored glittery part facing up. Then fan out the pieces, bring them down to meet at the bottom and fasten from the bottom with the other brad. Cut olive colored leaves with Big Shot and autumn accents bigz die. Crumple and un-crumple the olive colored leaves.  Attach the leaves with glue dots and then tie the linen thread to the leaves. See? Simple!
