Happy 6th birthday to Paper Pumpkin kits!
It’s amazing that Paper Pumpkin has been around that many years now. Oh my, how the kits have improved with age. And so have my videos! LOL Here is the first set of alternates I made. And here is the first video. (Don’t laugh.) I’m still making alternates for each and every kit AND videos for pretty much all of them as well. Click here to see my archive of all my past Paper Pumpkin posts on my blog.
I like to think outside the box…see what else I can come up with, and create alternate cards and other project ideas to inspire others. I added the extra supplies in the product list below to the above kit supplies to create my alternate projects that I’m sharing with you today:
- two fun cake/candle cards made from 1/2 of a kit card
- two counting books (a fun gift idea)
- two tulle shaker anniversary cards
- and two yummy donut birthday cards
Watch my video first to get to get measurements, directions, and tips (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog). Then scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned at the beginning of my video, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my creations.
Here are photos of the cards the kit instructs how to make.
Aren’t they fun!?
And here are close-up photos of the alternate projects I made and shared in my video. (Remember to watch the video first to get measurements, tips and directions.)
TWO FUN CAKE/CANDLE CARDS
I used just 1/2 of a kit card and some extra cardstock to make these two. And as you can see, you can add many or just a few candles to the cake to personalize it for the person you are giving it to.
These make a great gift for a young kiddo. You can create yours with personalized photos of your own.
TULLE SHAKER CARDS
These would be great for birthday or anniversary cards. They are MUCH flatter than the typical shaker card. And there is no static when putting them together!
Yep! The sprinkles looked like donut toppings to me. So I had to make donut cards. Hahaha!
I hope you enjoyed what I shared today!
April’s Paper Pumpkin kit will introduce you to Stampin’ Up!’s brand new Distinktive® photo-realistic stamp images.

Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colors are: Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Mint Macron, and So Saffron.
