August Paper Pumpkin Cards

My Daughter-in-law came over Friday and we worked on our August Paper Pumpkin Kits together.  She finished hers while over here.  I finished mine later.  I helped my grandson make a Wooden Crate using the Big Shot-he did most of the work himself.  My 2-1/2 year-old granddaughter made a card using some of the leftover Paper Pumpkin Pieces.

Here are the cards.  The only additional thing I used was regular Glue Dots from Stampin’ Up!  I am just not coordinated with the ones that come in the Kit.  My older grandchildren (age 5+) find them easy to use.
