Paper Pumpkins for fall decorating!
It’s so simple to create these Paper Pumpkins – perfect for fall decorating!
I used the “Color Me Autumn” Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (page 41) and cut the 12″ x 12″ paper into 1″ x 6″ strips. Stack 6 strips at a time and punch a hole at each end (about 1/4″ from the edge) with the 1/8″ Circle Handheld Punch. Repeat for the other 6 strips (you’ll need 12 total for each pumpkin) and then stack all 12 strips and add a brad at each end. Begin separating the strips until you have them all fanned out to create the pumpkin shape.
I used some of the green paper (from the same Color Me Autumn DSP) and die-cut some leaves using the Autumn Accents die. You can die-cut 3 pieces of the paper (2 if you’re using cardstock) at the same time too. I folded the leaves in half to crease them down the middle for a little extra dimension and added them to the paper pumpkins with glue dots.
I doubled up the Linen Thread and tie a bow and added it to the yellow paper pumpkin with a Glue Dot. I used some thicker twine for the orange one. If you want to see the other side of the designer series paper, just use less strips (6-8) and they will be spaced further apart.

Here’s another picture showing some of the other patterns from the “Color Me Autumn” Designer Series Paper:
Do you see the smaller one in the front? I used 8 strips of the patterned paper (3/4″ x 4″ ).
It’s also pretty easy to slide the strips open and close so you can add candies inside and give them as treats
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you’ll create some of these paper pumpkins as gifts for family and friends or as decorations for the fall season
