Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...World's Greatest


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 August's Paper Pumpkin kit: World's Greatest.


I love a pretty plaid and decided to cut one of the card bases to 2 pieces measuring 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  Why?  This gave me more plaid paper to work with. I am also a fan of stripes and when I saw the medal ribbon holder stamp I knew I had to use it.  My dilemma was I also wanted to use the trophy. So,  I stamped the striped medal holder twice, cut out the ribbon part only, and adhered it to the card front.  The trophy base fit perfectly and covered up the gap between the 2 ribbons.  The trophy was attached to the card front using dimensionals (also included in the kit). I tucked in a couple of the vellum leaf die cuts behind the trophy to act as a frame.  I attached the vellum with tiny dots of glue.  The glue is behind the trophy and  hidden by the star sequins,


To create the stopper for the easel I cut  a tail at the end of the gold banner piece and attached it to the inside of the card with dimensionals.  On the circle I stamped in Bumblebee ink the #1 and friend in Pacific Point ink.  


Since I had another plaid layer I decided to make another card.


The ruffled ribbon stamp is perfect for making award ribbons.  I thought about what kind of awards I give out and came up with one that would be fun to send or give out at my next team meeting.  I made a small shaker by creating a frame from one of  the stitched rectangles designs in the kit.  I used a Stitched Rectangle die and cut out a window.  I used a clear envelope and put some stars in it and trimmed the envelope to fit behind the frame.  I closed up any open edges to prevent star leakage and attached it to the back of the frame.  I punched 2 holes near the top edge of the frame.  This is where the pin is attached to the card.  Place dimensionals around the edge of the frame except near where you punched the holes.  


The sentiment is from a stamp set available to demonstrators called Stamping Your Way to the Top.  I inked the sentiment in Bumblebee ink.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White "demonstrator" was inked in Pacific Point ink and punched out using the Classic Label punch.  The ends were trimmed and placed over the Bumblebee "demonstrator" using dimensionals.   The other banner sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  

This would work fabulously using the World Greatest stamp set.  You could have a ribbon for World's Greatest friend, Teacher or #1 Friend.  

For this variation you will need:

  • stamp set (I used Stamping Your Way to the Top)
  • Bumblebee Ink Pad
  • Whisper White CS scrap
  • Stitched Rectangle dies
  • Clear Envelope
  • Classic Label punch
  • pin back
