Echo Park - A Perfect Summer & Scoot Col. / 3D Pumpkins

Hello Everyone!!! I hope you all have had a great weekend! We have a fall and I decided to make a few 3D Paper Pumpkins. I love the pumpkins very much, they've got many colours, many shapes, each of them is an original and make me happy. They decorate our home and garden in the fall.

Firstly I drew and cut various pumpkin stencils using paper and scissors. Each 3D pumpkin was made with several die cuts. I used 12 die cuts per pumpkin but you can use more die cuts to get more compact pumpkin. When I folded all of the pumpkin pieces, I put the halves together creating a small stack. I added adhesive to one side of the stack and I adhered it to the other side to create my 3D pumpkin. I added wooden stick and twine in the top. If you're interested, please see my video bellow.

I also join my projects into the challenges:
I wish you a Happy Fall.

Paper Smooches - Deco Bag Die / Advent Calendar 2016

Hello my creative friends!!! I have just finished the second ADVENT CALENDAR for 2016. My first one you can see here

In this case I decided to fill a black wire basket with 24 small bags. The bags were cut using my fave Deco Bag Die from Paper Smooches. The bags were bent and stuck and I sang LALALA.... :-) When the bags were finished I put them in our handmade press tool (my husband made this one two years ago for our personal use). And it was a great time for my next step: fishtail tags and numbers cutting and their completion. The tags with numbers were added on the top of the bags and small bars of milk chocolate were added inside and bags were closed. A double Sided Tape is perfect for it.  

I also decided to add a pocket with card. The card includes DEC days from the 1st to the 24th.  I don't think that waiting for Christmas Eve have to be all about eating chocolate but maybe it could be fun to cross day after day in the small calendar like this.

Have a creative day!!!
