What's Paper Pumpkin? It's an all-inclusive kit of creativity that is delivered directly to your mailbox each month so you can have a 30-minute creative escape and make fabulous cards, gifts and home decor (depending on the kit).
All you need is a scissors. The kit includes pre-cut and scored card stock, embellishments, envelopes, stamps, ink, accessories and special adhesives. Directions for making each month's surprise projects are included, but if you follow me on YouTube or my blog, you will see lots of other ideas to create with each month's kit.
Let me share with you a few alternate ideas I created with last month's (May's) kit. First of all, did you see the ideas I shared on April 19th? I hadn't finished one of the cards shown in that video at that time, so here is the final finished version of that navy and yellow card. (Extra supplies and tools that didn't come in the kit are listed at the bottom of this post.)
On Monday I shared another alternate project idea as I broadcasted live on Periscope. Click here to watch that recording…
(Congratulations to "CardsbyBev!" You won the prize this time!!!)
I was inspired to create my treat pouches demonstrated in the video from this swap by Anne Oshiro that I recently received.
Here are a few step-by-step photos to help you recreate the treat pouches I shared in my Periscope video above. (Watching the video will help give you more specifics. But sometimes a photograph helps, too.)
I didn't share this "belly band" in the video, but wanted to give you yet one more project idea.
This one is my favorite.
To make the simple treat pouch, cut the corrugated orange paper to 1-3/8" x 4-1/4".
Lay the cover on the base piece…line up the top edge of the cover with the top edge of the base piece. Then stamp your words.
Decorate with stars, fill with treats, close up your treat pouch, and give to your recipient.
I have a few more projects that I am creating. So come back Friday to see my scrapbook layout, project Life layout and more.
