The other day I said I was just about finished with my Fall cards and would be starting on my Christmas cards. Well, I forgot about Halloween, the Hello, Pumpkin Paper Pumpkin, and Thanksgiving. I don’t know what I was thinking!
For those of you who don’t know, Paper Pumpkin is the perfect way to jump into the world of papercrafting and get your creative “me-time” every month. The kit come with all the stamps, ink, and paper you need to create a fun project, without any stress. Everything is precut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun part of crafting! It’s the perfect way to always have cards and cute gifts on hand for every occasion. Your first kit includes a free gift—a clear stamping block. You’ll also build a collection of stamps and ink to use on other projects. Every month you will receive a special stamp set and a mini ink pad to keep. There’s no pressure—you can cancel or suspend at any time. Subscribe by the 10th of the month to get started!
The September Paper Pumpkin is fabulous! You can make the little cracker treat boxes as shown in this video or you can use the contents of the kit to make Fall, Halloween, or Thanksgiving projects.
Here is the cracker treat box I made with the Paper Pumpkin instructions. There are enough supplies for 20 of them, which I will be making for my granddaughter’s kindergarten class.
I also want to show you 3 cards I made with this kit. There is a ton of pre-cut paper pieces in this kit-pumpkins, black cats, colored leaves, flowers, tags, etc. If you don’t want to make the cracker treat boxes, You will be able to make many cards!
I used a Pumpkin Pie Cardstock base with a piece of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper on top of it for this card. The little wheelbarrow comes from the Autumn Goodness Stamp Set and was cut out with the matching die from the Autumn Wheelbarrow Die Set. The pumpkins, leaves, and the greeting where all included in the kit. The Pumpkin Pie Cardstock label behind the wheelbarrow was cut out with one of the dies from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies Set. (I love the stitching around the edges of it!) Usually I don’t normally use many more items than those that come in the kit, but the plaid paper and wheelbarrow where leftover from another project and were just sitting on my desk, so I decided to use them. I colored the Rhinestone Jewels with my Dark So Saffron blends to match the card.
This second card is made with a Cajun Craze Cardstock base with an embossed Whisper White panel on top of it. Everything else, except the Rhinestone Jewels came in the Paper Pumpkin Kit. The kits even come with Glue Dots and Dimensionals to complete your projects!
