Today is the last day to sign up (or have an active subscription) for Paper Pumpkin so you get in on this next kit titled Peaceful Christmas. Ooo ahhh…right!? (Information on this kit can be found at the bottom of this post.)
So I thought I’d share a few more projects that I put together with some of my leftovers from last month’s Haunts & Harvest kit. And today I have my blog post linked to posts from those in my PPX exclusives video crew. So see what I have to share. Then scroll down and click on the names of other hop participants to see additional creative alternate paper crafting project ideas with this Paper Pumpkin kit. (If you are receiving this blog post by email, click HERE to see the hop.)
My first two are simple little 3″ x 3″ mini cards made from 3″ x 6″ Basic White cardstock folded in half. (I recommend using 12×12 cardstock if you plan to make several this size so you don’t waste paper.)
This sunshine is composed of leftovers that I cut from boxes in the kit when I made my September 24th scrapbook page. The smile was cut the same way I cut shared with the pumpkins for my page layout using the Snowman Builder Punch. But a 3/4″ or 1″ circle punch would work, too. The whites of the eyes are from the white labels in the kit, and the black parts are from the small Black Matte Dots.
Did you see trees in those “leaf vein” stamps, too! I stamped this one in the Soft Succulent Ink from the kit, added the ground image from the kit stamps in the same ink color that is first stamped off onto scrap paper to lighten it, and then added the sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink.
Extra products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.
The next set of projects are things you may want to make to decorate your Thanksgiving Day table. I doubled the boxes in the kit by cutting them in half to make 24 3-sided tower boxes.
The napkin ring is made simply by twisting the wire piece into circular loops on each end, wrapping it around the napkin, and then tying the ends together with ribbon for a colored accent.
The boxes need a bit more explaining, so I took a bunch of photos during the process of me making them.
- Cut your box as shown – in half, remove rounded tabs, and delete the base leaving a tab shape in its place.
- Cut the loop end off the tab as shown.
- Score about 2″ from the base of each tab.
- Trim about 3/8″ (1 cm) out from each score line.
- Stamp the leaves and sentiments. Connect the loop to the top of the sentiment strip.
- Score that cut off box base piece down the middle and fold in half.
- Discard the rounded ends that were cut off.
- Add the box base piece to the section that doesn’t have its own tab. This will create a tab. Then add glue and connect the sides together using the tabs.
- Close up the 3 small tabs on the smaller ends and glue to secure. (The other end will just get folded to close.)
- Miter the larger tabs on the wider end, add candy or coins, and fold shut.
- Put boxes upright. Add a couple stacked Mini Dimensionals on the back corner and a Glue Dot or two on the front edge. Add a wide leaf or a couple skinner leaves as shown.
- Add about 10″ of ribbon and tie a bow.
- Then adhere the message/bow with Glue dots.
