Lis Ljung held a meeting for her down line last Saturday.  She was recruited by Beth, who is my personal recruit.

Everyone who came brought great trades and ideas.  Here is a pumpkin treat that was made by Sue Franco.  I took pictures of and recreated to the best of my ability!

This is the original idea.  The tag will be the only thing different because I don't have the original set used.

Isn't this just WAY CUTE or what!!!!?!!!

Now for how to make it.

  • Using the #114525 Ovals Bigz Die, cut out 8 of the largest oval.
  • Punch out one ##119860 1 3/8" Circle. Center it onto the cut out oval and punch it out. Then I laid the first punched out oval over each of the other 7, traced the circle with a pencil and punched out all eight of the circles.

  • Fold the ovals in half with the smooth sides being folded together so that they touch.  This will be the side that will show
  • I used regular adhesive on of the ovals.  If any place looked like is wasn't sticking, then I put some Sticky Strip in those places.  Before you put the last two together, slip in a lolly pop. This picture only has 7.  (found another one on the table that I had forgotten to put in initially)
    • PumpkinTut

    I used a pair of wire cutters and cut the end of the lolly pop down to about 1 1/4". Cut a 1"x 1 1/4" piece of Early Espresso card stock.  Put a piece of Sticky Strip along each of the 1 1/4" sides.

  • Wrap the c/s around the "stem", pull off the second piece of Stiky Strip and finish adhering the c/s.
  • PumpkinTut3
  • To create the "vines", cut two pieces of Old Olive c/s that is 5 1/2"x 1/8".  I tied the first one around the "stem".
  • PumpkinTut4
    Here is what the second one looks like.
  • PumpkinTut5.jg
    Wrap them around a pencil end to curl the "vines".
  • PumpkinTut6
    Use the #117191 Bird Builder Punch to punch out one leaf stem.  Then cut down the length of the stem a little before you add some #110755 Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the end of it.
  • PumpkinTut7
    I stuck the glued end of the stem down into the middle and let it set.
  • I didn't have the saying used originally, so I used the saying from #115370 Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I stamped it in black, punched it out with #119849 the Modern Label Punch, mounted it onto #115953 Punch Windows (goes with the Movers & Shapers Bigz Die), punched a 1/8" hole in the left end, and tied it onto the stem with some #100982 Natural Hemp Twine.
  • PumpkinTut8 
  • I ran the greeting through the #120889  Spider Web Embossing Folder just for fun.  Might not do it again.  Then again, I might!

     Well, what do you think?

  • I'm not sure who created this originally, so I have no clue who to give credit to.  So thank you to whoever had this amazing brainstorm!
