Paper Pumpkin March Box

I finally had some time to sit down and do some of my craft boxes and started with Paper Pumpkin.  For this month, it was a kit that made 8 cards in total.  There were 4 congratulations cards and 4 thank you cards.  They had a sort of 80’s vibe to them with the colors and gold glitter dots.  It felt like something I would have made in my pre-teen years.

What came with the kit:

It took me maybe an hour to finish the whole project.  I tried to make each one a little different, and also had fun adhering the gold envelope interiors.  They made the plain envelopes seem so fancy.

This month’s paper pumpkin arrived and I think it was my favorite so far.  This month, they sent a bunch of supplies to make Valentines but it was much more of a “use your own creativity” project than the last ones hand been because you could mix and match any of the supplies to create some different cards.

I ended up spending about 45 minutes working on these, because I was playing around with the different stickers and stamps to see what could be done.  I really enjoyed this months project.

Paper Pumpkin December Review

My first actual Paper Pumpkin box has arrived and it took a little longer than the trial kit to complete.  Here’s what was included:
