Cute Pumpkin!

The other day I saw the cutest pumpkin made by Gretchen Barron. I thought I would give it a try myself. Isn't he just the cutest!

Supplies
Ink Only orange
Paper Old olive, Basic black, Only orange
Accessories Pillow box Sizzix die, dauber Tombow 1, 1/2, 1/4 Inch circle punches as well as the photo corners punch!

Start by cutting out 3 pillow boxes from Only Orange paper. Using only orange ink and a dauber daub edges of the pillow box to highlight. Then glue with Tombow the three pillow box sections together side by side to make the pumpkin body. Also cut large scallop for the bottom. I flipped up the edges of the scallop circle and put Tombow on the bottom sections of Pumpkin. Carefully slide scallop circle from the top of the pumpkin to the bottom and press the glue to the the scallop circle to adhere the bottom to the pumpkin.

To make the face cut three of the smallest triangles from the Photo corner punch from Basic Black and glue together to make the smile. Using a leftover large Photo corner triangle to cut the nose. Then punch out two 1 " circle from basic black. As well as two 1/4 " circles also from basic black. Cut two 1/2 " circles from more mustard and glue all the features to the front of your pumpkin. Cut a old olive one inch strip for the handle and cut a sliver strip at the same time to create the curls. Attach handel with more tombow. Make curls using a thin paint brush to wrap sliver of Old Olive card stock and then attach. Easy peasy with my Bigshot!
