Sugar Sweet

My oldest daughter has been enjoying anime in conjunction with her first year Japanese Language class. It's resulting in new hair styles and edgier clothing. Of course that boils down to more photo ops for me!!!

To give the roses dimension I spritzed them with water them crumpled them and let them dry. I used hot glue to adhere the irregular shapes to the photo mat area. I also added a line of stitching to anchor the roses to the paper.

Paper Pumpkin

It's my favorite time of year...pumpkin everything!!!
Today's project is a Pumpkin made from punched strips, laced with washi tape.
To begin I cut 8 strips 12x 3.5 inch strips from cardstock. I punched both sides with Kreaxions punch #311. Then I unrolled a 13 inch piece of washi tape, folded it in half, and laced it through the punch marks.
 I covered a toilet paper tube with matchin paper. I used brads to fasten the ends of the strips into one end of the tube. Then I folded those strips outward and over and connected all of them together at the top with another brad.

To form the stem I rolled a 3x3 piece of paper into a tube. I folded one end of the tube back into itself and cut four slits into the other end of the tube. These pieces I adhered to the top of the pumpkin.
 To add to the charm of this home made pumpkin, just add a battery operated candle and let it glow all night.
