I'm completely in love with the September 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' Up! titled "Something Good to Eat." It's one of my favorites!!! I finally got to dive in this past week. On Monday I created. On Tuesday and Wednesday I recorded my tutoral video (that I share here on my blog and on YouTube) and took photos of my projects. On Thursday I edited my first of two videos and all my photos. And on Friday I continued editing and creating my blog posts so I could share with all of you.
I was hoping to get all the editing done, but I didn't. And we have a birthday boy in our house that will need some attention this weekend. :) So I'm sharing half the projects today…
- Several test tube gift and treat ideas
- A couple different holders for the test tubes
- And a set of 4 note cards
…and the rest by hopefully Tuesday morning. (Part 2 will include 12×12 Scrapbook pages, a Project Life layout and a few more test tube ideas.)
As some of you may know, with every kit I like to think "outside the box" and come up with lots of alternate ideas so I can share with you other options for what YOU can create with your kit contents. Watch this 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 alternate projects that I created from this kit that are shown in this video.
THE INTENDED KIT PROJECT
HOT COCOA MIX GIFTS WITH TAGS
CHRISTMAS COOKIE DECOR GIFT
A great gift idea for the someone who hosts a cookie exchange event
CLEAR TINY TREAT BOX TEST TUBE HOLDER
FOLDED CARDSTOCK TEST TUBE HOLDER (inspired by a pattern I found on Pinterest by Ellen Hutson)
The first couple shown below each hold one. But by changing the width of the cardstock, you can increase how many test tubes this holder can take.
Yes, you can stamp on the tubes with StazOn ink!
A SET OF FOUR NOTE CARDS
The trick for adding the looped thread is demonstrated in the video.
