Happy Sunday, peeps! This post is photo-heavy, just to warn you! Anne Marie is our hostess today at the Paper Players and she has a fun challenge for us:
Oh boy! Or maybe I should say “Oh girl”, because naturally, I wanted to try to include Cassidy in my project! I had seen these really cute, simple pleated pumpkins on Pinterest and I wondered if Cassidy could make one – with my assistance, of course!!! So here is Cassidy's project:
I found some glittery orange and green cardstocks in my stash and we went to work.
First, I copied the patterns and cut them out on scrap paper, tracing them on the back of the card stock. I cut the pumpkin out for her, since she still can’t use scissors….although we’re working on that skill! I scored them for her and told her how to fold them:
Notice, she is using a bone folder to make the creases nice & sharp!
I helped her punch the holes in the folded pumpkin:
Then we went outside to find a stick, and we threaded it through the holes:
Now back inside, we put the Autumn Accents die and some green sparkly paper in the Big Shot and she cranked it through:
And we have our leaf:
Another hole, threaded it on and we are almost done!
Later on, I had her stamp a little image from Gift Givers and she actually colored it in herself with a Pumpkin Pie marker….now she doesn’t want to color with her kid’s markers, she wants MY markers!! Of course!
