Pumpkin Rosette with Lori Whitlock Silhouette/SVG files

 Hello there! 

Can you believe it's September already?  Kids are back to school and fall is just around the corner, which got me thinking about pumpkins!

 This pumpkin was made using an SVG file by Lori Whitlock called "Build a Rosette".    (Item # 32782 in the Silhouette Store)
For the top of my pumpkin I used the Fall Leaves (Silhouette File 20959). 

The beauty of making this pumpkin with the Sizzix Eclips2 is that all the scoring is done for you as the file cuts.  The Eclips makes true score lines, so folding is a snap!

To make this pumpkin simply choose a rosette style and cut the following sizes:

Two 12 x 2
Four 12 x 2.25
Four 12 x 2.5
Four 12 x 2.75
Two 12 x 3

Use two strips end to end to create 1 rosette.  You will have two rosettes the same size of the 2.25, 2.5, 2.75.    Begin stacking the rosettes according to your liking.  I used the smallest on the bottom and worked my way up with one of each size up to the 3", then started stacking in reverse decreasing as I got to the top.

I was thinking an apple for the teacher would be a super fun gift!  Or how about a pineapple for a tropical party?  The possibilities are endless!
