cutie pa-pumpkins


so i got this idea from Carol on the Midnight Maddness blog. Altered it a bit, and the lil girl down the street who I teach crafts to, her and her mom and our friend and I all made them for craft time this week! Our friend is her piano teacher, I'm the craft teacher, and her mom is well mom! Hehe. So my friend made the base of the front left pumpkin, and I made the base of the back right pumpkin {it alternates darker and lighter orange shades} and then I made both the stems and curlies. Ok, and I just realized now that the green stems and such don't show up well against the green background- sorry! All paper is DCWV. I made the curlies by cutting the paper really thin using my craft knife and then wrapping them around a bamboo skewer!
