Amber Autumn Paper Pumpkins + Video

If you learn anything for me....please remember this one thing.
Always keep a camera in your purse or car!!
You really never know when you are going to have a perfect photo opportunity!!
Like this one...
a little fall spot set up outside of a store I was going to.
Quick moment, perfect memory!
Get it? Got it? Good. :)

So how cute are these pumpkins? I have seen different versions from different blogs that people have made and then my son came home from preschool with them...I knew I needed to try making them myself and WOW, were they easy!!! I think they are so cute because of the Amber Autumn Paper that I used :) See my video HERE for an exact how-to....

Don't you love the cute leaves that were carefully cut out from a sheet of patterned paper? These are way cuter than the ones my son came home from preschool with :)

Supplies used: 
Buttons (Bag-o-Buttons/Autumn Leaves)
Big Brads & Crop-a-dile (WeR)

So watch the video and try them out yourselves!!! You won't find a more perfect stack of paper for these than the Amber Autumn Stack. Love it!!

Have a great Monday! See you soon :)
