Pumpkin Patch

These little balls are super easy and quick and fun to make. You could make a whole patch of them or use different paper and hang them from your Christmas tree. 

To make them, cut 12 1 x 6" strips of paper. You get two balls out of one sheet of decorative paper. Stack the paper. Use a Crop-A-Dile or some other strong punch and punch through all the sheets on either end, going in about 1/2" at one time. Thread ribbon through. I used our new In Color ribbon in Lucky Limeade. I like the curly edge for giving a more realistic look. Thread and knot the bottom, make a knot on top, or a loop to hange. I have seen where you leave a long tale on the bottom and thread beads or other punched pieces when it is an item you want to hang, not sit on a table. Sponge the edges of the paper for more dimension. Store ball by sliding paper back into a stack.

Also depending on where you place one of your knots can change the look of the ball. I chose to have my bottom knot a shorter distance from my top knot giving my pumpkin a more squashed look. You could leave a longer length for a more elegant look.
