Today’s craft project using Tuesday Morning’s orange, green, & brown cardstock is this paper rosette pumpkin.

This paper pumpkin idea has been around for years.   You can find many variations of it all over pinterest, blogs, websites, etc…

I have no idea who came up with the original design.. but they are a paper genius!

This rosettes can be made using many different products
Here are a few different tools you can use to create the rosettes.

Martha Stewart Score Board
Scor-Pal
Basic Paper trimmer w/ the score tool instead of a blade
Basic Paper trimmer w/ a bone folder
Ribbons and Rosettes Cricut Cartridge
Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge

Tim Holtz Rosette Dies work for smaller rosettes
or the good old fashion fan folding technique using your fingers

Of course I am sure there are many other things you can use to create a rosette.. this is just a list of ways I personally make rosettes.

Which ever way you decide to make your rosettes you will get the same effect as long as you have multiple sizes of rosettes.  Layer any way you want.

My stem was created by rolling brown cardstock.  I have also made them by using sticks or rolled burlap.  Add real burlap, twine, sticks, or rope for more textures.

Mine is inked w/ vintage photo distress ink and finished off with a spray or two of glimmer mists

Get creative make it as big or small as you want.  Stock up on orange cardstock from Tuesday morning.  You can get 25 sheets for $1.99 that is a deal you can’t beat.

Here is another pictures of some of their holiday paper craft products you can stock up on .

What’s your favorite paper crafting punch to use?  I have a few that I use more than others, but that doesn’t mean I want to get rid of the ones I don’t use that much.  Punches are easy to bring with when going to a crop or teaching a class.  I also love how easy they are for kids to use.  I love my Martha Stewart punches and tend to reach for them the most.   Here are just a few punches that some of the design team enjoy using.

Cigar Box Love!

I only collect a few things.. the #2, vintage frogs, vintage scissors, and cigar boxes… all of these items can be found in my studio.

I think the best way to display a boring old cigar box is to decorate it to match your room.  I took one of my boxes and did just that.  I used 3 of the mixed media banner shapes from Linnie Blooms.  I just painted all 3 of them pink.  I like how they added the texture that I needed for my box full of other crafty goodies.  I used a page from a Genuinely Jane Studios Banner book for the large banner shape on the cigar box, along with a few fun items from Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, and my favorite Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  These are basically the colors on one side of my studio.. I love the soft colors near my desk and office area.. I have bright, fun, and cheery colors in my painting area of the studio.

Just Scor-It !

Today over  at Practical Scrappers they have a list of 9 things you can do with your scoring tools.  I use both the  Scor-Pal and Martha Stewart’s  Scoring board.   Here is the layout that I turned in to Practical Scrappers, please check out their site to view the other great ideas.  The team of crafters over at Practical Scrappers are so talented and I love their ideas for today’s post.

What have you done with your scor-pal lately?  I love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment any time.

My niece and nephew.
I created the back ground with my scor pal, then sanded the scored areas.

This is an old layout I did. I created the white score lines in the back ground, for texture and a denim jean look.
