Pumpkin with Prima!

Create the pumpkin with a paperback book and Prima flowers!!!
 
 
I LOVE all the Prima flowers here!

 
Plan at least a couple of nights to create this pumpkin!
 
Supplies:
Old book
Cutting tools Craft Knife
Ink Orange
 
 
 
Choose a paper back to cut... preferably one you have already read!!!  This book is 650 pages and took a lot longer to cut than I expected.  Remove the front and back cover.


Use the cover the create a template to use when cutting the book.  Gently with the craft knife cut through a few pages at a time.  Use the Kai Scissors to snip into the corners when they won't release from the book binding.  

 
 
Ink the edges of the pages with orange Ink, optional ink each page (this will take sometime... my book was 650 pages and a lot of ink!)
 
 
When all the pages have been inked, glue several pages together at the front and back of the book with Tacky Glue.  Make sure to get the glue in the center of the pages to keep them from pulling out of the binding.  Let the pages dry.  Glue the front and back pages together and put under a heavy object to dry. (no photo).
 
 
 
Once the pages dried you are ready to decorate the pumpkin.
 
 
 
I got a twig out of the yard for a stem... added Prima leaves!
 
 
With Tacky glue adhere the flowers to the pumpkin.
