Hi my crafty friends! I have a really fun project for you today! While I was visiting my local Archivers this past weekend, I found this project sheet at one of their display tables. I knew I had to make this! It is sooooo super cute! It does take a lot of paper..8 sheets...but I think it is worth it!
In the video below I show how to put the pumpkin together, but you will need the dimensions of the paper pieces, which I will list below. The video is a little long, but I hope you stay with it...I think you will enjoy the finished result!
Now on to the video!
Here are the dimensions for the paper pieces:
You will need to cut the following from double sided paper of your choice. I will start from the top of the pumpkin to the bottom.
2 strips of 1 1/2 x 12 inch (top layer)
3 strips of 2 3/4 x 12 inch ( 2nd layer)
3 strips of 3 x 12 inch (3rd layer)
3 strips of 3 1/4 x 12 inch (4th layer)
3 strips of 3 1/4 x 12 inch (5th layer)
3 strips of 3 1/2 x 12 inch (6th layer)
3 strips of 3 1/4 x 12 inch (7th layer)
3 strips of 3 1/4 x 12 inch (8th layer)
3 strips of 2 1/2 x 12 inch (9th layer)
2 strips of 1 3/4 x 12 inch 10th and bottom layer)
For the stem you will need to cut 3 strips 1 1/2 x 12 inches
I hope you have fun and send me a link to your pumpkin if you make one!
Have a fun week!
