My largest is made of twenty 1" x 12" strips through which I punched a small hole with my Crop-a-Dile at each end and threaded with brown ribbon. For my centerpiece I doubled a 14" long ribbon strip, threaded it through a 2-hole button at the bottom, then through the top holes. Then I simply tied a knot at the desired spot, and flared out my strips. Since I used wired ribbon, once I pushed it down and fanned out my strips, I merely added 1/4" Scor-Tape to secure my ribbon "stem" together and cut it diagonally. On my leaves, left over when I used the flower on another project, I used Dried Marigold distress ink, then sprayed with Mimosa Glimmer Mist for a bit of sparkle and inserted the stems between the pumpkin and my taped stem. I airbrushed pipe cleaners with Copic E57, curled around a crochet hook and then around my stem.
Super Sale, so picking a stamp was easy! Since I don't yet have their Nested Frames Dies, I used the large frame as an accent border along my sentiment's left edge. I LOVE it! I die cut a Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream CS scrap (ALWAYS on my craft table!) with Spellbinders' Fancy Tags Two, masked the edges and stamped the little border and sentiment. A bit of Antique Linen distress ink, followed with a spritz of Mimosa Glimmer Mist and my sentiment tag simply slips over the stem. Once the holiday is over, you simply remove the tag/leaves/tendrils and fold all the strips under each other to easily store your pumpkin until next year!
My little place card pumpkin uses 3/8" wide strips cut 3 1/2" long and secured with orange brads at each end. A name tag for each dinner guest is made again using Spellbinders' Fancy Tags Two and the Nested Frames border, plus JustRite's 50 pt. Curlz Alphabet letters for each guest's name. I cut the fancy right end off my tag as it seemed a bit long -- don't be afraid to make your dies "work" for your needs! I also added a small leaf cut from Spellbinders' Foilage die and cut a wire stem from a paper rose, again using my E57 Copic marker to color the wire's paper wrap, curled it and added it to my tiny pumpkin.
Hope the shimmer shows on my tag/leaves as it really adds a nice touch, kind of like "frost on the pumpkin" which I never see here in the AZ desert!
