I had seen this canning jar lid pumpkin the other day http://www.simplyklassichome.com/201...d-pumpkin.html and since my DD's wedding centerpieces featured canning jars, we had lots of leftover lids. I didn't really look at the tutorial, just the picture and I took 15 small lids and tied them with twine. I cut two Flourishes and ran them through the Square Lattice ef then used my bone folder to smooth them out somewhat and sponged them. I punched two large tags and scored across the top from "shoulder" to shoulder and then 2 score lines down from the top of each point. I cut out the little triangles that formed between score lines. I ran these pieces through my crimper in 4 directions then smoothed them out and sponged a bit. Used sticky tape to form the stem.
Today's Ways to Use it challenge is to use tags so I made a fun Fall tag to go with my pumpkin art! I cut a tag in Crumb Cake and stamped the Weathered bg in the same color. I inked the large corner flourish with Soft Suede and thumped with Mustard and Cajun Craze. I stamped leaves in Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie and stems in Burgundy. I sponged the edges of the card in Pumpkin Pie and stamped the verse in Early Espresso. I added my chunky twine and called it done!
