I can't even tell you how excited I am to share with you these fun ideas I created with the contents of the March 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit: Pocketful of Cheer. It almost kills me that I created them a week ago, but with the amount of time it takes to record, edit and upload the videos (and then photograph, edit and watermark photos, etc.)…well…I am just on pins and needles by the time I get my ideas to you! Hahaha! (I may do a series of shorter videos next month so I can bring them to you as I make them. Still thinking about that, though. Any thoughts?)
I really love Paper Pumpkin kits!!! (Those of you who know me already know that, though.)
Did YOU get this March kit that came in the beautiful Bermuda Bay box?
The gift card holders in it are so beautiful (love the colors, too!). But with every kit I like to "think outside the box" and come up with lots of alternate ideas so I can share with you (and my Paper Pumpkin subscribers) other options for what to create.
Today I am sharing with you:
- An elegant alternate card
- A cute and simple basket
- A treat pouch that I then turned into a water bottle hanging treat pouch
- And a fun 12×12 scrapbook page
Tomorrow I'll have more. So here are 1/2 of the fun ideas I created with this kit. Watch the video to get tips, measurements and directions. Then scroll down to see close-up photos of these projects and a list of extra supplies I used to make them.
Here are close-up photos of the cards that the March 2016 kit directions instruct you to make. (This kit had enough supplies to make 4 of each of these great "card & gift card holders" combos.)

Here are close-up photos of the alternate projects that I created from this kit that are shown in THIS video. (I'll share the second set of projects tomorrow.)
ELEGANT ALTERNATE CARD

CUTE & SIMPLE BASKET
I hadn't decorated the basket in the video, but felt it needed something before I photographed it for my blog. For the tag…
…I put masking tape over the word "just." Then I inked up the stamp, peeled away the masking tape, and stamped it onto the backside of a round tag from the kit. I didn't add this item to the product list below because I didn't demonstrate with it in the video, but I used a 1-3/8" Circle piece of Cucumber Crush cardstock behind this label. Click here to see that cardstock in my online store.
