My May Paper Pumpkin Kit!


It came! My Paper Pumpkin kit arrived!

It was so exciting to get my May Paper Pumpkin Kit! Inside I found a bright & cheerful Birthday kit! It has 6 cards and 4 good sized gift bags ready for me to assemble.

Everything I needed was in the kit except for adhesive & Scissors. But the 6 card bases & envelopes, punch outs, stamp set, mini ink pad, 8 sheets of tissue paper, dimensionals, and cord were all in the kit. What a great deal for all that you get!

As soon as I saw what was all in the kit, I was already getting some ideas on what to do with it all. I decided to make some just as the instructions indicted, and some I would use with my ideas.

That's what I like about Paper Pumpkin, you can use your own creativity if you want!

So this is what the instructions tell us on how to make the cards (except I added the Calypso Coral around the circle edges).

And here are the variations that I made.

The stamp set has a balloon so I took some Whisper White scraps, stamped balloons and cut them out, tied Calypso Coral Baker's twine on them and tied it to a knot just under the sentiment circle. I also lowered the band to allow for the balloons.

For this card I used the back of the card, added Whisper White behind the band to make it pop more. I took two more of the punch-out circles and stamped balloons on them.

I decided that I would take one of the gift bags and cut it up for the card. That's where the dotted paper comes from. The two holes are from the top of the bag and I used some of the bag cord to take advantage of the holes.

For this card, I took the top curved flap of the gift bag and one of the large balloons to create this card.

I again used the back of the card for this one and cut the front of the bag with the die-cut balloons with one of the banners and popped them up.

Let's ave a look at the bags. This is how they turn out when you follow the instructions. I made two like this.

Because I had cut up one bag, I was left with a third one. This is what I did to it using some left-over bits and pieces, and adding to to them.

Here is the Stampin' Up! video for the May 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit. Enjoy the fun!
