The One with the Paper Pumpkin

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

I've got a project featured on the American Crafts blog today! I should have posted this hours ago... but better late than never I say.
A little bit about the paper pumpkin: It's no secret that I'm in love all of the new Elements by American Crafts. Pearl brads, glitter brads, jewel brads, glitter buttons...what's not to love? It's a fun challenge trying to find a way to use these new Elements on everything I make. For this fall-themed project I wanted to make a pumpkin with "bling" for a beautiful piece of front door decor.
