Fall is in the Air and It's Pumpkins, Apples and Football Season

The leaves are starting to change color and I wanted to add some fall color to my house.  I decided to create paper pumpkins, apples and a football with my Cameo Silhouette.



Here are the .Studio file for the pumpkins.  I used cardstock but you could use regular scrapbooking paper for both the pumpkins and apples.

There are twelve images to an 8 1/2 x 11 page.  I used 6 images to create my pumpkin.  You could use more if you would like.  Fold them in half and apply glue to one side of each pumpkin as shown in the picture below and attach in a circle.



Here are the .Studio file for the apples.

Again there are twelve images to an 8 1/2 x 11 page.  I used 6 images to create the apple.  You can use more images if you would like.  Assembly is the same as the pumpkins.  Fold in half and apply glue to one side of each apple and attach in a circle.

Here is the .Studio file for the leaves for both the apple and the pumpkin. There is also a twirly vine for the pumpkin. Curl the four narrow strips of paper like curling ribbon to create the vine.

Here is the .Studio file for the football.  I used cardstock for a sturdy football that can actually be thrown.  My husband threw a spiral with it.

The football is a little difficult to put together.  I recommend gluing one side at a time and letting it dry before proceeding.  Otherwise, you will get frustrated.  I cut the laces on the same brown cardstock as the football.  I painted the laces with white acrylic paint.  If you don't have paint you could cut it on white paper but I thought it would be more fun to paint it.
