Happy Fall Ya'll (A Craft)
Scroll to the bottom for the Poem!
Once dry, make a little pumpkin like above and add your own message. This is a close up of my pumpkin, I chose to do just black markings over the orange. They are just quick pen strokes and curly lines. I'd thought about using a dark green but I couldn't find the right pen.
This is the poem I printed and attached to the card. I wrote it myself, isn't it cute!

Glue the tubes into rolls and let them dry, then glue one end. There is a better tutorial on here by Skip to my Lou, I think she covers all the right bases but here's my version. Oh, and these are made from half sheets of paper.
Then, seal the other end. I did it in the opposite direction like Skip to my Lou (her button is to the right), but you could do it the same direction, too.
Here's the little Poem I wrote...
My thumbprint is so little There’s not much it could be But when I paint it orange A pumpkin you can see I pressed my little thumbprint I wanted it to be A special little pumpkin Because it’s made by me.
