Halloween Week: Paper Pumpkins

This is probably my favorite project of Halloween Week. I have been seeing all sorts of super cute fabric or paper pumpkins out there & had been wanting to give it a try. Then I got my Stampin' Success magazine in the mail (a magazine that Stampin' Up! demonstrators receive monthly) & they had some paper pumpkins right on the cover. And they even gave you a few tips for making them yourself. I decided to try them out. They were very easy & I love how they turned out. I used some old Halloween & Autumn designer papers I had. I love the fall colors & will be able to leave these out for a couple of months through November.

Here's a close-up of the teeny pumpkin:
The only thing I'm not crazy about is that my designer paper was double-sided & so the inside of each pumpkin is white with some design on it. But you can really only see that up close anyway. These would be cute with solid card stock though too & then it would be the same color inside as well.
