Paper Strip Pumpkins
Here's what you need for these: orange paper strips 1 x 6 inches, brads, brown cardstock 1/16" strips, small square of green cardstock for stem and leaf, if desired.
Line up 12 orange paper strips with design (if using scrapbook paper) all facing the same way. Punch holes in both ends about 1/4 inch from the end.
Secure the strips with metal brads with the tops of the brads on the patterned side of the paper.
Start bending and separating the strips, gently pulling them around into a ball shape. I love those little girl hands ;-)
Separate and arrange as necessary to get coverage all the way around the pumpkin.
Twist the brown strips of cardstock around a pencil to create the tendrils. Roll the green cardstock into a loose cone shape and secure with a hot glue gun.
Apply a dollop of glue to the top of the pumpkin and adhere the tendrils.
Then, adhere the green stem on top of the tendrils.
