Fall is my very favorite season!
Something about the crisp air the crunch of fallen leaves and the anticipation of Thanksgiving and Christmas just makes this time of year extra-special to me.
I wanted to share one of my favorite fall projects with you. It’s something you can make and use year after year.
It’s paper pumpkins! (Not to be confused with My Paper Pumpkin! ha ha!)
These paper pumpkins have been made into a garland, but they also look great as decor in other ways, like arranged in a bowl. Here is the full view of the garland hanging. See more detailed photos below.

A really close view!
I’ve included the instructions for making these pumpkins as a download for you. Enjoy!

Have you noticed all the shiny metallic accents in fashion, décor, and crafting? It’s all the rage!
You can easily and affordably add the beauty of silver and gold metallic with the high-quality Foil Sheets from Stampin’ Up! These 12” x 12” sheets are thick, to make them sturdy enough for you to use for a variety of techniques, without worrying about them tearing.
One of my favorite things to do with the Foil Sheets is to dry emboss them with the Big Shot and Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. You’ll love how rich and amazing just a simple strip of embossed foil looks!
4 Foil Sheet Techniques for you to try today:
- Dry emboss with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders & the Big Shot.
- Die-cut with any Big Shot dies or Framelits or punch with Stampin’ Up! punches.
- Heat emboss with Heat Tool and Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Silver Embossing Powder on Silver Foil looks like pressed tin and gold on gold is beautiful, too. Heat embossing in other colors creates a great on-trend look with the shiny foil and shiny embossing.
- Stamp with Black or White StazOn ink.
So many fast ways to add beautiful and affordable Foil Sheet accents to your projects! Which will you try first?
TIP: Punch or die-cut a shape from a Foil Sheet and then emboss it with a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create a fast, beautifully detailed accent.
