Wednesday's "Belli" Challenge - place settings


This week's Belli Challenge is table decorations for either Christmas or Thanksgiving. I made this pumpkin using 1" x 6" strips of Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper. I put a brad through each end and spread out the strips to make a ball. I added Wild Wasabi Designer Paper (discontinued) leaves made with my Big Shot and vines. To make the vines curly, I just wrapped the skinny strips of paper around a pencil. The tag is made of Naturals Ivory Card Stock stamped with a personalized stamp and sponged around the edges with Chocolate Chip Ink. I used both of the tag punches and attached the tag with a glue dot. To see more projects from this week's Belli Challenge go to these blogs:
