Paper Pumpkin Introductory Box

I had recently been searching for gift subscriptions to see what other box subscriptions were out there, and stumbled upon this stamping subscription called Paper Pumpkin.  I wasn’t sure if I’d like the projects since I’ve already been into stamping and have tons of supplies already, but thought I’d give it a try since I haven’t had many inspirations lately for projects.

Here was my experience with the trial kit.

I have never used a stamping block like this before and was a bit confused.  The instructions weren’t very detailed or clear, so I went to YouTube and watched a quick tutorial on how to use the block and how to attach the label when done.

The steps were basic and extremely simple, and I finished the whole project in under 5 minutes, not counting the time it took me to figure out the stamping block.

Overall, it was nice to have a project with all the supplies, but it really only took 5 minutes of my time and did not seem worth it.  The instructions were very light and I felt they could have given more tips.  In the picture the butterflies were lifting off of the cover, but I couldn’t get them to stay that way and just stuck them on flat.

I’m considering signing up for the subscription with the hope that the later projects will be a little more involved but I’m not sure.  Does anybody have experience with them or have a recommendation?  I found this code for 50% off for the first two months, so I think I’ll give it a try: NovHouseParty.
