The January 2021 Sending Paper Pumpkin Kit. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I’ve already shared some other alternate projects using the contents of this kit on January 23rd

  • How to turn eight cards into twenty!
  • A few variations with the coordinating Love Boxes Add-On kit (available while supplies last)
  • And a couple two-compartment treat boxes

CLICK HERE to check them out for more ideas.

Today I am sharing a couple bookmarks and a shaker card with you.

I find that I’m doing a lot of reading before bed nowadays. Sometimes I have more than one book going at a time, too. So bookmarks were on my mind when I sat down to create. And these are very easy to recreate. In fact if you are someone that does your kits with your kiddos, these may be a fun project to try.
