Tuesday Tutorial: 3D Pumpkin Thanks Card

Happy Fall Y'All!! For today's tutorial, I thought I would show you how to make a cute 3D pumpkin, which is just perfect for a Thanks card or a Thanksgiving placecard or any of your Fall projects. 

First, gather together your supplies. I wasn't exactly sure which papers that I would use, so I just grabbed all the papers and stickers that I thought would work well for a Thanksgiving card.

Now for the instructions.

1. Use your circle cutter or die cutting machine to cut out four 2.5" circles. Then cut out a 1.5" circle out of the center of each.

2. Chalk the edges of the circles. After they dry, use your scoring tool to score the center of the circles from top to bottom.

3. Fold the circles in half and attach them together, except for the last two sides.

4. Use your quilling tool to twist two 5/16" thick strips of green paper.

5. Add a 4.25" by 4.25" piece of rust colored cardstock to a brown square baroque card.
6. Add a 4 1/8" by 4 1/8" piece of Haunted Manor Gallery of Ghouls paper on top.
7. Add a 3 6/16" by 3 6/16" white cardstock.
8. Cut a brown stem and place leaf stickers from Thanksgiving Headlines around brown stem.
9. Add 3D pumpkin and curly vines.
10. Cut and notch a 3/4" by 3" strip of green cardstock. Add Bubblegum Teensy Type Cardstock Stickers and tuck behind leaf sticker.

Hope you enjoyed!
