I enjoyed February’s Paper Pumpkin since it was a departure from just cards. This month it was supplies to make 5 gift bags with your choice of lettering. I only made 2 so far because I wasn’t sure what I’d want the others to say. (Maybe I’ll give a personalized gift to someone and will want to spell their name.)
What I got:
It came with two round texture stamps, an ink pad, tiny wooden clothespins, ribbon for the handles, 5 bags, cutout circles, raised stickers, and letters.
The Finished Product
I decided to go with “hello” since it was generic enough to give to anyone. I like the polka dot texture but did another with the stripe texture spelling out my husband’s name. (I figure I’ll probably give him a small gift at some point.)
Overall I think this month was probably worth the $20 subscription fee. I’ll see what the March kit brings.
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.
Here are the finished cards:
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:
I was surprised to see it came with another acrylic block. I’m guessing that after this they will just send the stamps since these can be reused.
The project was super simple and took maybe 20 minutes to complete. I liked that they banners and green circles were actual stickers which made them easy to apply. The ink blot stamp was interesting too and gave it a cool effect. These seem like they might make a good gift to give someone.
