Supersize Me

My daughter has a big Halloween party planned and 
when she saw these pumpkins she wanted some.
BUT, she asked for super-sized ones!!!

We had fun making these!

I just scaled up the design - using 23" strips of orange card, 2" wide.
The card was stamped all over using metallic gold ink and a Hero Arts, Deco Border stamp. So IRL they do have a bit of shimmer.
To support the weight of the card we threaded the ribon through a kitchen roll tube, that was covered with the orange card.

I would like to enter these for the following challenges.

Crafty Ribbons - Boo-tiful Halloween Projects - Pretty Spooky
Make It Monday - Linky Party
Stamp with Fun - Halloween
Crafting for all Seasons - Fall Flowers/Pumpkins
Crafty Creations - Create a Crafty Decoration
