The January Paper Pumpkin Kit can be used for Valentine’s Day. Cute Pillowbox Treat Holders with all the supplies to make them. There are 24 Pillow boxes-enough for a small elementary school class. Starting Wednesday, January 30, my friend Deborah will be making a Paper Pumpkin Alternate project for us. She really enjoys doing the alternate projects.
JANUARY PAPER PUMPKIN KIT
January Paper Pumpkin Kit
Stamp Block G
1. Choose sentiments to stamp on the White die cut Banners. Stamp using the Melon Mambo ink pad. Notice there are two sizes of Banner die cuts.
2. Punch out either a Pool Party Circle or a Heart, and either a Kangaroo or the two Chameleons. Lay out the animal(s) with the sentiment banner to decide where you need to put your adhesive.
3. Attach your sentiment Banner first to either the Pool Party Heart or Circle die cut with the Glue Dots from the Kit.
4. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of your animal making sure the Stampin’ Dimensionals will only be attached to the Pool Party Heart or Circle die cut.
5. Decorate the Tag with either the die cut Heart and/or the small enamel Hearts.
6. Make your Pillowbox.
~Decide whether you want the red or the Pool Party side to show. Fold all the score lines.
~Attach the adhesive strip to the side flap of the color you want to show.
~Peel off the adhesive backing. Match the side tab score line with the edge line on the other end. Press together firmly and rub with your Bone Folder.
~Fold in the bottom flaps: first the half-circle flap, then the flap with the notch cut out. Put in your treats or small gift.
~Fold in the top flaps: first the half-circle flap, then the flap with the notch cut out. The notch makes it easier to open the flaps.
7. Attach your Animal Tag to the top of the Pillowbox with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Would you like your OWN Paper Pumpkin Kit in your mailbox every month?
My Paper Pumpkin is a Monthly Craft Surprise in your mailbox! It has everything needed to make the project(s) included except adhesive for only $19.95 plus tax. You must sign up by the 10th of the month (TODAY) to start getting your own Monthly Craft Surprise Kit in your mailbox!
These are the cards I made with the Welcome Kit. When you join My Paper Pumpkin you will get the Welcome Kit the first month, then you will get the Kit of the Month the next month. You cannot catch up on missed Kits. If you decide to upgrade or embellish your Kit, you can use your own supplies from your stash. If you make all four cards in the Welcome Kit the same it will take you about 30 minutes. It took me about an hour and a half to make these four cards. Part of the time was spent thinking of how to use all the supplies in the Kit but make the cards look different.
These things are included in the Welcome Kit: 4 envelopes, 4 gray/white card bases (already scored), 4 light-colored card fronts, 1 sheet of self-adhesive die cuts, 4 buttons, 2 Clear Mount stamps, 1 Clear Mount Block D, 1 Basic Gray Stampin’ Spot ink pad (you can reink Stampin’ Spots with ink refills so you can use them for a long time.), Instructions in 4 languages with a Photo on the front.
Card 1. Here is the card I made following the directions included in the Kit.
Card 2. I used the Honeycomb Embossing Folder. (Note: you will have to trim either the top or bottom of the card because the embossing will distort it and make it look crooked.) Cut the light card front paper at 2-3/8″ x 4″. Stamp “Hey there” on part of the light colored print that is leftover. Punch out with a Large Oval Punch. Punch an Extra-Large Oval out of Lucky Limeade. Adhere to card front with Dimensionals. I also used Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine to tie the bow in the button. I adhered the Button with Glue Dots. Card 3. I embossed the light card front with the Chevron embossing folder. I also stamped the “Hey There” on part of the left over card front from Card 2 and punched it out with an Extra -Large Oval Punch. I sponged the Oval with Lucky Limeade ink and then adhered it to the card front with Dimensionals. I also used Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine in the Button. Card 4. I used the Window Frames Framelit to cut the card front this time. Then stamped the “Hey There” directly on the Window Frame. I also used the Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine to tie a bow on the Button again..
