  • Start by opening design #33590 in Silhouette Studio.
  • Size down the pumpkin design to 5.6 inches tall by 3.7 inches wide.
  • Now since this 3d pumpkin wasn’t meant to be a straw topper, you will need to change the sizes of all the circles. The standard size of most paper straws is about .26 and if you look real close at the picture above, you can see that’s what I sized mine to.
  • The circles on the leaves will also need to be sized to .26 to fit around the straw.

  • Cut the pumpkin design from orange card stock and the leaves from green card stock.
  • I also cut long, quarter inch strips (wide) of green card stock to make curlicue’s for the tops of the pumpkins.
  • Assembling is easy! Starting with the bottom of the pumpkin, poke the straw through each hole, making a sphere.
  • The leaves simply slide on over the pumpkin and the green curlicue is secured with a teeny-tiny dab of hot glue.

  1. These are adorable, Brie! (I could tell this was your project as soon as I saw the first photo.)

  2. Very cute – great idea 🙂

  3. I can’t wait to make these. They are so cute! I just love 3-D paper crafting and Fall. Thank you!

  4. When you size to the 5.6 x 3.7, is that without the leaves? If so, what do you size those to?
