Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop...Broadway Star


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use  this month's Paper Pumpkin kit: Broadway Star.

This month's Paper Pumpkin kit is the first time the kit also coordinates with  a product suite in the Stampin' Up! Annual catalog.  Can you guess what suite it is?  It is called the Broadway Bound Suite and can be found on page 69 of the catalog.

When I opened the Paper Pumpkin box I was so happy to see a black and white striped card bases.  You know I have a thing for black and white and stripes.  


The first thing that came to mind was to make a box.  This box and lid were made from 2 card bases.  In fact everything I used on this project was in the Paper Pumpkin box except for the Black Satin ribbon which is part of the Broadway Bound suite, the purple star candle, and the surprise inside of the box.


Now you can see a little bit of what is inside.  I decorated the package with some of the many elements in this month's kit.  


Have you figured out what the package is?  It is a packet that makes an individual brownie cake in the microwave.  The person who gets this will be able to make themselves a little cake and use the purple star to make a wish.  Honestly I have no idea what the cake tastes like.  I just think it is such a fun little gift.

I love this project! Would you share the instructions for how to make the box out of the card bases? I would appreciate that so much, and I am sure others would too! ;-)
Thanks in advance!
