This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an inspiration challenge. I’ve been wanting to make these 3D paper strip pumpkins and today I did! It was so easy! These would make beautiful decorations for your Thanksgiving table. Another option would be instead of the stamped sentiment you could do place cards.
I cut 14 strips 1 inch by 6 inch, of DSP then sponged the edges with Soft Suede. I used my Crop-a-dile to make 1/8″ holes on each end of the strips. If you use the Crop-a-dile you can make a hole all at one time. What a time saver! I then used two brads to make the pumpkin. I die cut the leaves using the Leaves #2 die then I embossed them with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. I also used Gold Lame Smooch Pearlized Accent ink on the leaves and on the tendrils. To add more dimension to the leaves I also sponged them with with Soft Suede. The sentiment is from Day of Gratitude and I used the Decorative Label punch to die cut and frame it.
I hope you’re inspired! We’d love to see your project.
