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 November Paper Pumpkin kit: Winter Gifts.
I know it seems impossible but the Paper Pumpkin kits just seem to get better every month! I think this kit is amazing and the projects are pretty much perfect as they are but since this an alternative ideas blog hop I had to change things up just a little bit. I made the tags pretty much as instructed with just some minor changes like placement of the leaves and sequins and adding ribbon bows instead of the silver cording. The biggest change is I mounted the tags on an easel so instead of tags on a package it is a piece of home decor. I think this is going to look cute on the mantel.
The easel was purchased at one of the big craft stores and come 3 to a pack, already painted and with an easel back. They were inexpensive and I like to have them on hand to make quick home decor items and gifts.
The only thing I added that wasn't included in the November Paper Pumpkin kit was the "Merry Christmas". This was cut out of Poppy Parade cardstock using the Merry Christmas dies. If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber of mine and want to recreate this project, email me and I will cut the sentiment out and send it to you.
There are refills available for this kit (both the full kit and refills) but you need to be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to order them.
