3D Pumpkin #1 Gold emb flourish sparkles

Made this 3D Pumpkin: heat embossing a flourish pattern using orange cardstock & gold embossing powder, cutting 10 strips of the heat embossed paper measuring 1" x 6" each, stack the strips 5 at a time, use Crop-a-dile punch to make holes at each end center for both ends for all strips, use brads to insert in holes to keep the strips together, flex the paper to get ready to make pumpkin, spread apart all strips so that you have what looks like a pumpkin and then decorate with pumpkin stem, leaves, tag, etc.
