Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: A Little Smile


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog hop.  We are hopping to share with you alternate ideas on ways you can use the June Paper Pumpkin kit, A Little Smile.

This month's kit is all about sharing a little kindness and appreciation.  I decided I wanted to make a little gift card holder for my hairdresser who is going on a little trip.  She is going somewhere tropical so this kit was just perfect and I had the perfect gift card too.


You know what really made me happy?  The Paper Pumpkin kit had everything I needed.  I didn't use anything other than what was in the kit and it is a quick project!  Follow along and we can make it together.



I took 2 envelopes and attached one flap of one to the other.  You now have two pockets to use.  


I cut one of the little card in half and used the die cuts and stamps to decorate the cards.  There are a lot of different die cuts to use and I love the variety from vellum to glimmer!  This kit has a generous amount of die cuts.


A gift card fits perfectly in the envelope!  Remember you have 2 pockets so 1 can be used for a gift card and the other for a little note or even another gift card.

Now it is time to hop on over to see what the talented Janey Backer has created for you!


I hope you enjoyed my alternate idea on how to use the A Little Smile Paper Pumpkin kit.  If you are not currently working with a  Stampin' Up! demonstrator and have some questions and/or are interested in Paper Pumpkin, I would be happy to help you.

This is adorable! I almost went on this path myself and did something similar, but got sidetracked and went a different way! I love what you did, and may be CASEing it!

That is so very cool! Perfect in every way! It was meant to be! I love how you used only stuff from the kit! That's always the best alternate for those that don't have all the "extra" stuff we have! 😉

Candy Ford
