~paper pumpkin tutorial~

I got so many good ideas at the
flea market this past weekend.
One of them was a pumpkin
made out of a book,
{this one is an apple}
So, I came home and tried to
find directions on how to make one.
Guess what?
I did! Go here for the step by step instructions.
I also have something to confess.
I didn't bring my camera to the show.
Bad, bad, bad!
However, so many people took pictures and I will share the links with you as I find them.
My friend Isabell took some great shots and you can see my booth in one of the photos
{the one with the book page wreaths on the wall}
You can see them here.
Let me know if you make one of these pumpkins, or apples.
I am thinking I will do these for the kids' teachers for a Thanksgiving gift.
Out of an old dictionary perhaps?

I have seen this idea in the craft books using regular white or colored craft paper but I like your idea better using the old book pages, I think I shall have to give it a try.

This is so clever! I have to say I never gave any teacher of my 3 girls a Thanksgiving gift. Was I suppose to? Oh well, the last one just graduated from high school so I can't do anything about it!
Enjoy your evening,

Hi Melaine,

I love this and your idea to use a dictionary for a teacher gift! I think it's completely sweet. (huh hmmmm I usually get them a LCBO gift certificate... figure they could use it after spending all day with my offspring : ) ~Stacey

Hi Melaine! I saw those paper pumpkins at R&R, they were so fun! Maybe one of my student's parents will make me one of those, hee! I enjoyed chatting with ya at your booth, I got my pillow home and it was perfect (I posted about it on my blog! ;)
Thanks so much and I hope you were able to take a few restful cozy days to recoup!

This brought back a memory I haven't thought about in a long time. When I was a kid, we made angels by folding Readers Digest magazines and adding a styrofoam head. Funny.
