Paper Pumpkins using the DT Trail Set


Using Happy Trails, Tiny Shapes, Tiny Holiday, & Tiny Accents. Paper by My Mind's Eye

Here are the steps to create your own paper pumpkin.

Step 1: Cut and ink the happy trails strips - 16 full-size trails for the large pumpkin and 7 full-size trails, cut in half, making 14 for the small. I used 2 patterns of double-sided paper to make the trails.Step 2: Cut 2 circles out of chipboard - Tiny Shapes #7 for large pumpkin / Tiny Shapes #3 for small pumpkinStep 3: Hot glue each of the strips to the circle one at a time like the picture below.
bend the strips up and hot glue to 2nd circle...one piece at a time.

Step 5: To create the top, decide on the shapes you would like to use and cut them out. I used Tiny Accents & Tiny Shapes. After you have inked them and adhered the pieces together,
cut a slit in the top.
