Crafting Out of the Box

Some folks like to follow a recipe and others enjoy creating something from scratch: With a Paper Pumpkin kit, you can do either…or both!

The June Paper Pumpkin kit was fabulous for summertime celebrations (see the video I shared on June 19th)…here are the projects as shown in the kit~ it had supplies for 6 cards and 4 bags:

Then it was time to try mixing it up a little! What else could I do with just the items in the kit, but not make them all the same? Let’s see…

Made a few different tags and cards, then put the banner on the INSIDE of the card to pop up when the recipient opens it!

Once you’ve created all the projects in your kit, you still have the stamp set and ink spot(s) left over, so add a little more card stock, a different color of ink and maybe a few accessories and keep on creating:

It’s almost MORE fun to find different ways to use the supplies than it is to follow the instructions! Should you need more inspiration, may I suggest joining the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club group on Facebook? You’ll be blown away at the creativity shared by other crafters with their kits~ and find hundreds of ways to get the most of your Paper Pumpkin kit!

Subscribe to Paper Pumpkin before July 10th to get the next awesome kit for yourself or a friend.
