I’m sure you’ve seen these around, right? An easy, cheap way to make some cute fall decor. gotta love that! PLus, Sadie helped me with these. Well, she handed me strips of paper until she got bored and wanted to use the hole punch by herself.
“SADIE DO IT!”.
We here that a lot around here these days. That, and “me? mine?” Mostly when we go to the store. She thinks anything with Belle or Cinderella on it was made for her, and her only. Anyways, getting off the subject!
2 sheets of matching scrapbook paper
Cut 1″ strips of paper from your sheets. I cut mine different lengths too, so they’d be different sizes. The white strips are 8″ long, the brown are 10″, and the orange is 12″.
Punch a hole in the ends of each strip. Smaller hole punches work better if you have one, if you just have a normal sized one, I’d use wider ribbon.
Tie a knot in one end of your ribbon (cut it about 10-12 inches, you’ll cut some off in the end though), and string it through all the holes on one end of your strips. It helps to cut the end at an angle and then use a lighter to seal the edge. That way you have a nice little pointy part to
poke people with use.
If there is texture on your paper like there was mine, make sure it’s facing out.
Then, put the ribbon through the other set of holes, like so.
Then, tie a knot. Ignore the green bow please. I ditched that. Then, fan out your little strips until they make a “pumpkin”, adjust your knot placement if needed, and tie on a ribbon bow/stem. I like the brown and orange one best, little squat pumpkins are too cute!
Arrange and enjoy your cute decor that you made, all for a couple bucks!
Place on top of hubby’s desk in hopes of a “hey, cute pumpkins!”
Nope, nuttin’. That’s ok. That’s why I have you guys!
And P.S. I had so much fun seeing the shirts you guys made for the sew along! I think I’ll do a post showcasing them on Friday-that’ll give some extra time for those still working on them or want to make one before then! I think I’ll have to do some more sew alongs soon 😀
