Hello SILVIE here with a fun Pumpkin tutorial to share.
Those 3D pumpkins will be
perfect for your Halloween projects as well as for festive Thanksgiving
White and green cardstock

Die cutting machine
* STEP 1 *
several pumpkins and stems with vines with your LLLC pumpkin die. You can use as many die cuts as
you want but to obtain a certain dimension, the minimum is 10. I’m using 20 pumpkins and 10 stems here. If
you use a lightweight cardstock or patterned paper, you can cut 2 shapes at a
time to go faster.
* STEP 2 *

* STEP 3 *
pumpkin in half, align the edges as precisely as possible and make sure they are
even. Make crisp folds with your bone folder.
* STEP 4 *
on one side of your folded pumpkin and adhere your next folded pumpkin to it.
Make sure to line up the shapes along the straight edge where the fold is.
* STEP 5 *
same and adhere all your folded pumpkins together.

with vines to your pumpkin. As those are really tiny, using a pair of tweezers makes it
easier. It’s better to glue stems once the pumpkin is finished as you can
decide where exactly you want to put them.

* STEP 8 *
pumpkin is now finished. You can glue
the back of the pumpkin to your card by applying glue to both finished ends of
the pumpkin. Or you can make it a standing
3D object – in this case apply adhesive on both finished ends and bring them
Below you can see my other two projects using the pumpkins in 2 different ways:
