Thanksgiving Pumpkins

Only one more week before Thanksgiving.  Mmmm...turkey, mashed potatoes, wine, and pie!  Hello!  Doesn't get much better than that.
I just wanted to share some small decorations I whipped up quickly. 
Punch out 20-30 2" circles of paper.  I used the gold print paper from this month's Moroccan Spice kit.
I added a few brown circles for bulk and interest.  Fold circles in half and burnish edge.

Gather up circles back to back with the fold at the top.  Place between binder clips and brush on Bookbinding Glue to folded tops. Let dry. After drying I took a craft knife and sliced off 1/4' of one rounded side so the pumpkins would sit flat.
Release clips and fan out circles.  Glue the first and last circles together to create the pumpkins.
Take brown paper ribbon and twist in half, glue to top.
Add leaves or embellishments.  These would make cute place cards!

When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
