Punch 311

Paper Pumpkin

It's my favorite time of year…pumpkin everything!!!
Today's project is a Pumpkin made from punched paper strips, laced with washi tape.
 
To begin I cut 8 strips 12x 3.5 inch strips from cardstock. I punched both sides with Kreaxions punch #311. Then I unrolled a 13 inch piece of washi tape, folded it in half, and laced it through the punch marks.
 I covered a toilet paper tube with matchin paper. I used brads to fasten the ends of the strips into one end of the tube. Then I folded those strips outward and over and connected all of them together at the top with another brad.
To form the stem I rolled a 3×3 piece of paper into a tube. I folded one end of the tube back into itself and cut four slits into the other end of the tube. These pieces I adhered to the top of the pumpkin.
To add to the charm of this home made pumpkin, just add a battery operated candle and let it glow all night. Check my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.
 
Scrap On!
