A Patch of Pumpkins

This is the bonus item I put into the Stamp Club orders. 
Each month there is a surprise in their bag.

 This mini pumpkin is filled with a bag of Decorative Label Punches.

 To make the pumpkin you'll need:
2 scallop circles - I used the 2 3/8" Scallop punch.
One leaf - This is from the Big Shot Leaves #2 Die
A 1.5" scrap of Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon and Sticky Strip tape

Emboss the 2 scallops in the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  Emboss the leaf in the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The 2 folders fit in the Big Shot at one time.
Score 1/2" from one edge to create a flap to fold in for the bottom.  Apply Sticky Strip as shown in the photo.  Lay one circle over the other to create the pumpkin body.  Make sure to align the scallop edges so they line up at the top too.



Attach punch shapes in bag to inside of pumpkin using strip of sticky strip.  A mini candy bar can also fit inside, just score at 3/4"-1" on each pumpkin.   

Lay Old Olive ribbon stem over Sticky Strip before pinching top together,  it will stick up between the pumpkin layers.  See photo.  

Attach leaf to front with a glue dot.  I also added a retired SU button that I tied with Linen Thread and attached with another glue dot.  So quick and easy.  You can make these with any size Scallop circle.  The larger the circle the wider your base needs to be so they don't fall over. 

Happy Stamping!
