Directions:

  • Cut the card stock into roughly 4″ x 3″ size
  • Using the orange quilling paper, make a circle and pinch both ends to create a diamond. This is the center of the pumpkin. Glue shut if necessary.
  • Using the orange quilling paper, make two more circles. Gently pinch both ends to create a diamond. Then pinch the center of one side and round slightly to form a crescent. Glue shut if necessary.

  • Carefully position the pumpkin pieces on the card stock to make your pumpkin.
  • Add the person’s name to your card or if you prefer, you can print out their name on the computer onto white card stock before applying your design.

  1. I love these for name cards! We do Thanksgiving every year and are always looking for creative things to do to dress up the table!
  2. These are so cute! Does it take a lot of time to do each one? I never did quilling- add it to my list
  3. Never even heard of quilling, how cool! I'll have to try it too some time.
  4. I've seen quilling on Craftsy but never tried it. It does look easy though and I love the cute pumpkin design. It doesn't look like supplies cost too much either.
