What are you most proud of? Creating the burlap stem! I love how that turned out. The existing stems on the pumpkins were very very short. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Expect to get messy! Use thin strips of paper. And if you plan to use scrap booking paper, avoid the double sided stuff. It's thick, and you can get it to work, but it takes a lot of mod podge. The single sided paper was much easier.
