Hey there blog readers! How are you this fine Tuesday?
If you haven’t heard, it’s Martha Stewart week at Archiver’s and Archivers Annex! All week long we’re celebrating the queen of crafting.
For today’s Martha Stewart themed blog post, I thought I’d share an adorable idea that was passed along to me from our lovely store in Indianapolis, Indiana (Thanks Monique!). It’s a rosette pumpkin!
Isn’t it just adorable! Check out the project idea on our website for all the items you’ll need to make a rosette pumpkin and directions on how to put it together.
You can definitely play around with the sizes of your papers and rosettes to make all sorts of different pumpkins. I made two smaller ones and just messed around with different sized rosettes until I found the combination I liked the best. I used Bazzill cardstocks to make this pumpkin:
I made the second pumpkin with patterned paper, just to try a different look. This paper is from the Authentique Glowing collection (I also used some more Bazzill cardstock for the stem and vines). Again, I just tried different rosettes until I found the combination I liked best! Here it is:
Here’s a shot of both of them together, next to a standard sized pair of scissors, so you can see how big they actually are. The biggest rosette on the orange pumpkin I made is from 2 1/2″ x 12″ strips of cardstock.
The great thing about pumpkins, is that each pumpkin looks totally different than the one sitting next to it. Make a bunch of different sized rosettes and layer them however you want to create a whole patch of pumpkins!

Happy Martha Stewart Week!
