The Perfect Pumpkin - LYB & Xyron Swap

Little Yellow Bicycle and Xyron teamed up to bring you some fun all week long over on their blogs. Today, we are showcasing my fun little pumpkin on the LYB blog.

I was pretty excited when I got the box containing my new Xyron Create a Sticker product that they sent to the Little Yellow Bicycle design team! It is so easy to make your own sticker from whatever paper design you are working with. I just so happened to use the Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow goodies for today's project, which is a paper pumpkin.
I cut the pumpkin using my CAMEO and a cutting file I downloaded from their store but you could easily do this by cutting multiple circles and then perforating the inside edges to form a triangle. I also cut a stem and set it aside. Once the circles were cut I ran them through the sticker maker.
They came out on a long strip as shown below and all I had to do was peel them off. Instantly I had a great little sticker.

Next, I folded the circles at the edges and adhered them, sticky sides together, to each other, turning the perforated flaps up. I continued to adhere them to each other until they formed a "ball". I added the stem and some ribbon to top off the project.

I think these would look great with two more pumpkins in different sizes, perched on my table in the entryway.

AH-102 Pretty Plaid/Flowered Dot
AH-103 Brown Berries/Textured Walnut
