Technique Tuesday!

Hello everyone!! Sarah here with another Technique Tuesday.
Now these fall kits were packed full of pretty papers by Echo park and BoBunny and they were all perfect for fall layouts, cards and home decor.
Now what I'm sharing today I made for some place setting cards for Thanksgiving. They are so simple and fast you can go whip some up for yourself in just a few min!

So what you'll need is the circle punch or punches in the sizes you'd like, I used a 1 inch and a 2 inch punch for the different sizes. You'll need a bone folder, mine came up missing so I used a larger paint brush I had and adhesive. I would suggest a dry adhesive rather than glue, with the glue it will take longer because you'll have to hold it till it drys.

I started with a bunch of the circles I punched out and then folded them all in 1/2. Now when you fold them, remember that you'll want to make sure the side you want showing is on the inside

To stare getting the pumpkins put together, you'll put adhesive on one side of the outside of the circle, lay them next to each other and press them together, continue this until your happy with your pumpkins shape. 

For a card I did about 5 circles in 1/2, this way it would have a flat place to sit. and for the ones for my table I did about 7, but before I adhered my last circles together I cut about a 1/8 of an inch off the bottom so that it would be flat and sit on my table.

I also cut a small piece of paper for a stem of the pumpkin added a little bit of taped to it and slid it between some of the circles I adhered them together. Then they were done! There so cute and make great little festive pieces around the table, cant wait to use mine on Thanksgiving!!

Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!!!
