Eek! Just as Stampin’ Up! promised us, the September 2019 Bone Appétit Paper Pumpkin kit DOES give new meaning to the word “handmade.” ☠︎It’s a fun one for Halloween fans and for those who just love skeletons in general.
As many of you know, I LOVE getting these monthly kits! This month’s kit included supplies to put together 20 food-safe treat boxes. And it included the supplies shown below.
But I like to think outside the box…see what else I can come up with, and create alternate cards, scrapbook pages and more. So I added the extra supplies in the product list at the bottom of this post to the above kit supplies and created my alternate projects that I’m sharing with you today:
- THREE fun fold cards
- A non-halloween card
- Wedding favors
- A “house” Halloween treat box
- And a tombstone treat box
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). Scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned in my video, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my creations. Then be sure to visit my blog again soon, because I have many more alternate projects that I’ll be sharing in the coming week or so. 😁
Here are the treat containers that the kit instructs how to make.
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.)

A PEEK AT OCTOBER’S & NOVEMBER’S PAPER PUMPKIN KITS
Christmastime papercrafting with Paper Pumpkin has become an annual tradition! So to deliver more of what our subscribers love this holiday season, in October and November we are offering back-to-back coordinating kits, one with Christmas cards, the other with Christmas tags. Both kits make it easy for you to add a handmade, personal touch to your holiday giving—without a lot of fuss. It’s Christmas made easy with Paper Pumpkin! The October 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit makes ten 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ cards and includes envelopes. The November 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit makes 24 holiday-themed gift tags of 4 various sizes and designs. Both kits include coordinating colors: Early Espresso, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Shaded Spruce. The October and November kits coordinate; however, each kit is all-inclusive and can stand alone.
