I always love getting my Paper Pumpkin year round but there is something extra fun about the ones you get for September through November – it’s usually something fun for Halloween in September and holiday-themed for October and November.
If some of you are asking what Paper Pumpkin is, here’s a quick description: a monthly subscription box of awesomeness and creativity. Or….an all-inclusive kit that allows you to create fun paper-crafting projects.
Here are the 3 cards as designed in this month’s kit:
All of the designs are really adorable. If you’ve been following me for a little, you know that one of my favorite things to do with my Paper Pumpkin kit is to create alternative projects. Why not, right? You have all the supplies right there – go for it! Well, when I think all the projects are perfect the way they are, it’s a little hard for me to do this. So this month, I made a whole different type of project.
Next month’s Paper Pumpkin will coordinate with this one and the rumor is it will be tags. I guess that bit of intel put gift tags in my brain – so I came up with this:
I used the stamp set and few other items I had to make this tag.
- Cut a tag out of a piece of Basic White and Poppy Parade DSP
- Stamp ‘Merry’ in Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green ink on the white tag; stamp ‘Christmas’ in Early Espresso on a scrap of Basic White and fussy cut
- Stamp stars in Coastal Cabana along borders of the white tag
- Fold a 24 inch length of Whisper White seam binding over 4 times and loop through the tags hole (lining up both the white and DSP pieces) Using a 12 inch length of twine tie a bow around the white ribbon to secure it. Trim the tops of the white seam binding
- Adhere the Christmas to the white tag using Dimensionals
I think this was a fun one!
