With the paste thus formed, a ball of 1.5 cm diameter approximately.
With the help of the great picnic in the wood (with the pointy ends have been cut using the cutting pliers), make a hole in the dough ball to a thickness of 2 mm.
With the toothpick, make a small hole in the dough ball to the opposite end of the previous financial hole, and make grooves all around the ball, at regular distances, by pressing lightly with the toothpick positioned "flat" on the ball. These grooves need to go on the big hole to the small hole to its opposite.
Roll out roughly a piece of green dough (by hand) to have a plate thickness of 1.5 mm approximately. Use the cutter of precision to cut out a shape of a leaf.
Rework the outline of the shape to the hand for giving him more the aspect of a sheet, and then use the sharp pointed tool (or toothpick) to draw the veins of the leaf.

In the black paste, make two small balls and flatten them to get round 2 mm diameter and 1 mm thick.
Place the black circles on the round white without the center to form eyes funny, and put together on the pumpkin, between the leaf and a green buckle.

Using the pointed tool, draw a rounded ranging from one hole to the other to complete the mouth of the pumpkin.
In the red paste, forming a small oval, 6 mm long, 4 mm wide and 1 mm thick. Cut one end with the cutter for precision and make a notch in the middle without cutting completely through the dough. This form of the language, it only remains to place it in the middle of the mouth toward the bottom.
