Hello & Welcome to Scrap It Girl’s site.

My real name is Kimberly Congdon and I live in Wisconsin. I am a paper craft instructor, designer, retailer and party planner. I started Scrap It Girl January 2008, after hosting my 1st paper crafts class in my home classroom. Ever since that first class I have expanded my studio and classroom space, added a mini store, and I now teach between 3-5 classes per week. I also sell kits, place orders, teach at other locations, host parties, crops, and have 2 other crafty websites. The best way to reach me is through my facebook page or email me at scrapitgirl@wi.rr.com Thank you

Today’s craft project using Tuesday Morning’s orange, green, & brown cardstock is this paper rosette pumpkin.

This paper pumpkin idea has been around for years.   You can find many variations of it all over pinterest, blogs, websites, etc…

I have no idea who came up with the original design.. but they are a paper genius!

This rosettes can be made using many different products
Here are a few different tools you can use to create the rosettes.

Martha Stewart Score Board
Scor-Pal
Basic Paper trimmer w/ the score tool instead of a blade
Basic Paper trimmer w/ a bone folder
Ribbons and Rosettes Cricut Cartridge
Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge

Tim Holtz Rosette Dies work for smaller rosettes
or the good old fashion fan folding technique using your fingers

Of course I am sure there are many other things you can use to create a rosette.. this is just a list of ways I personally make rosettes.

Which ever way you decide to make your rosettes you will get the same effect as long as you have multiple sizes of rosettes.  Layer any way you want.

My stem was created by rolling brown cardstock.  I have also made them by using sticks or rolled burlap.  Add real burlap, twine, sticks, or rope for more textures.

Mine is inked w/ vintage photo distress ink and finished off with a spray or two of glimmer mists

Get creative make it as big or small as you want.  Stock up on orange cardstock from Tuesday morning.  You can get 25 sheets for $1.99 that is a deal you can’t beat.

Here is another pictures of some of their holiday paper craft products you can stock up on .
