I love love love Paper Pumpkin because it is such a fun surprise in the mail each month that I get to unwrap like a present. It comes with so much goodie in such a small box and it’s the perfect little crafting moment for me where I don’t have to pull out tons of supplies or think up the idea! This May Kit is AMAZING!!!! It comes with cards and gift bags!!! Love it!!! Click here to see the video of my opening the box!
Look at all of these fabulous cards and gift bags!!!! For this Kit, I didn’t do any of the cards like the directions stated. I went all out!!!! Get ready for picture craziness!!!!
Here are all of the gift bags! I did these pretty much like directions but had to modify a few. The blue balloon was created by me tracing it with one of the coral balloons from one of the card bases. The little striped balloon was from a card base and I stamped it on the back to use as a guide for cutting it out! Also, that mini bow in the front bag is so little because I didn’t think there was a lot of ribbon. Who am I kidding? These kits always come with plenty and now I have extra! 🙂
This gift bag is tied up and then I unraveled the ribbon a little! Super cute! Now for the cards…
So both of these cards use the regular card base provided in the kit. For the card on the left, I took some of the tissue paper and used my Fringe Scissors to cut it. Then I layered a smaller piece of the Bermuda Bay strip on top. I stamped the greeting on the circle and attached it with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Bermuda Bay Sequins! For the card on the right, I added the Whisper White cardstock (3-3/4″ x 5″) and stamped the balloons on scrap white and cut them out!!! I used Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine for the strings! Love them!!!
The card on the left uses a piece of Whisper White cardstock (3-3/4″ x 5″) that I stamped the balloon tails in Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Calypso Coral. I stamped the 3 balloons on scrap white and cut them out. I added a little Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine for the bow!!! The card on the right uses the back of the card base (the stripes are on the back of this one). For the white border behind the Bermuda Bay strip was cut from border of the circles (see below).
I love love love this card on the left because it uses my favorite tool – Sponge Daubers!!!!! I used the negative of the punched out Coral Balloons as a template!
For the cards on the right, I cut up one of the card bases where it uses a little bit of front stripes and the back – solid Island Indigo! I cut up one of the Bermuda Bay bands and cut banner tips into it. I also added some Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine and Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim!
These are the final 3 cards. I used cardstock for all of the bases – Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay! I did the fun fringe on the middle cards with the tissue paper again! Here is an up close photo of that!
With a little bit of extra cardstock and ribbon/trim, I created 9 cards and 3 gift bags with this kit!!! I love it!!! Many of the ideas were from Stampin’ Up that they showed in the Sneak Peak Video. I loved it so much then that I added a second box to my subscription. These projects were all made with 1 box and I will be taking the other box with my on an upcoming vacation to do with my Mom and Niece! Crafting on the road since all I need is the box and a pair of scissors! LOVE IT!!!
