On Sunday I hosted a super fun event called Paper Pumpkin Palooza. Those that came received gifts, prizes, treats, special shopping deals, and these adorable make-n-takes.
This first one was made with the stamp set from the June 2015 Happy Thoughts kit. We turned the flower stamp image into a fried egg. And the pan and egg yolk are created with 3 simple punched pieces of card stock. I know, right?! So fun.
I kept the make-n-takes simple and quick. But if you would like to recreate this, the yolk is crying out for some Crystal Effects to make it shiny and to round it out a bit.
The Whisper White card base is 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" and the striped designer paper is 4" x 4".
The other two make-n-takes were two gift tags. We used the November 2014 Simply Snowflake kit and nothing else. I LOVE that kit! (It's no wonder it sold out right away during the first day of the Online Extravaganza sale.)
Here are a few photos from the set up around the room before the event began. This is where I had past kits & past refill kits set up to purchase.
(Our washer and dryer make great tables!)
There were pumpkin flavored treats.
And each person that attended received a decorated box filled with some of my past Paper Pumpkin creations and the supplies needed for the make-n-takes. Each box contained different creations. It was fun to see everyone check out each others' gifts.
I decorated each box with an image from a past "demonstrator only" stamp set (one of our past business supply items) and the items listed here.
And because each box was from a Paper Pumpkin kit that had been mailed to me at some point, I covered all the mailing labels with a piece of Watermelon Wonder card stock. I thought this color worked pretty well being that the kits aren't really a true red.
Everyone had a great time. I can't wait to do it again next year!
Thanks to all who attended: Brenda, Julie, Vicki (shown here)…
