It's hard to see in the pic, but I made a stem by cutting out a 1" by 4 1/2" piece of Old Olive cardstock and cutting little slits across the bottom. This gives it a base to adhere to the pumpkin.
|Fold the edge where you cut the slits in, then curve into a stem shape and adhere with a glue dot. I didn't want the middle to show so I placed 1 3/8" circle in the bottom of the stem and glued it in around the edges.|
|Sorry about the blurry picture! This is the bottom of the stem. I put glue dots on this part and stuck it to the pumpkin.|
