Fall Tag Tutorial by Lucy Chesna
I love to create tags and especially involving fall colors.

Here is a tag I did with a tutorial on how to create your own pumpkins out of circle punches. It’s fun and so easy to do.

6 1/4 x 3 1/8 tag (office tag or cut one out of cardstock)
Patterned Paper
Orange cardstock
Spray mist
Wooden fence from craft store
Circle punches (1 ¼ and 1 ½ inch size punches)
Pop dots
Ink (optional)


Step 1
Cut a piece of patterned paper smaller than the tag ; ink it and adhere it to the tag

Step 2
Lay wooden fence on the tag half way and mist it with your choice of spray mist; Pull its up and let it dry.

Step 3
Punch out (3) 1 ¼ circles and (3) 1 ½ circles from the cardstock; Ink them
Step 4
Assemble the 1 ½ circles together shown here; Repeat the steps with the 1 ¼ circles.

•What they look like after assembling them

Step 5
Cut out (4) small squares from patterned paper or a scrap of cardstock; Cut (3) thin strips of patterned paper to make swirls.
•Hand cut the items to look like this for the top of the pumpkin

•To make the swirls

Step 6
Attach it to the pumpkin shown here

Step 7
Add the pumpkins to the tag; add pop dots to the smaller one and add your swirls

Step 8
Add your sentiment and you are done
