Gratitude Paper Pumpkin

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.
