Pumpkin Parade

Good Friday morning again, crafty friends!
I have another Halloween home decor item that can
easily be translated into a general Fall display to encompass 
the entire Autumn season :)

Today I'm using the Pumpkin Album Die from
TOP DOG DIES
 and the brand new "Spirited" Collection from Authentique Paper.


I die cut the album shape from a medium weight chipboard and then cut 
matching pieces from the colorful patterned papers.  
Using the 9" Xyron Creative Station made adhering the papers to 
the chipboard super quick!  

To attach the panels together, I folded each of the pumpkins along the 
tab that is in place for binding (if using the cut-out as an album).
The tabs were then glued to the next panel in an accordion fashion.

I accented the pumpkin fronts with use of the Vintage A2 Mat Die and the ghost
shape found in the Halloween Trio Die Set
I used black velvet leaves from a floral pick that I found at Michael's and the 
orange flowers are by Petaloo.


The edges of the pumpkins were trimmed in grape baker's twine and was
also used as an accent for the two labels at the ends of the accordion.

You will find all sorts of really fun Halloween/Fall projects this month at

  1. So, about this cute project here, I must say my favorite parts are those super cute ghosts and the purple twine you used to edge your shapes. I have tried doing that with twine and I ended up all stuck to myself and twine sticking where it was not supposed to. This is an example of where your precision and perfection in crafting comes in!! YOU are a marvel! Hope you have a super fantastic day!!
