Paper Pumpkins (w/tutorial)

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday :-)

I recently saw some fall decoration with pumpkins made of paper and I loved the idea.
So I tried to do some myself. These are really small (almost 2'' wide) but you can do them any size you want.
It all depends on the diameter of the circles you use for it (you also can use ovals to create the pumpkins.. I think this looks even more 'real' than the circles)


Ok.. I thought I'd put together a little tutorial on how to make these cuties.. they are really super easy and quick to make!


1 - punch (or die cut) 15-18 circles or ovals from plain orange or patterned papers
I only used 12 circles for these samples, but I think it would look even more nice with more circles or ovals
The circles can be any size (mine in this sample are 1.5'' inches)

2- fold the circles in half with patterns on the inside (refer to picture)

3 - put adhesive on one half of the outside of each circle (refer to picture - upper row)
 4 - glue the half circles all together side to side (except for the last one!) and this is what you have:


5 - roll a piece of rectangular brown or green paper to create the stem 


6 - put the rolled paper 'stem' in the center and glue the last circle halfs together



I know this little tutorial is anything but perfect but I hope you got the idea :-) It's really super easy!
