Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...Jolly Gingerbread


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities 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 the November Paper Pumpkin kit: Jolly Gingerbread.


The Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin kit includes everything you need to create 15 gift card holders and envelopes.  From the stamp set to the cutest little candy stickers, everything is there!  For my project I wanted to add a little sweet treat and yes, there is a stamp that says that too!  The 3-1/8" x 3-1/8" Acetate Card Boxes was the  perfect package to house a little bit of chocolate.  

I dismantled one of the envelopes and found the cute striped paper.  I cut the striped portion  into 1" strips and joined them together to form the band around the box.   I followed the directions and stamped the tag and sentiment rectangle. Instead of adhering  the house portion of the card, I cut the tab away to make it more of a card.


I stamped the inside of the card using Calypso Coral ink and attached the gift card to the inside of the card with a glue dot.  The little house is attached to the striped paper with some glue dots and further secured in place with some Calypso Coral ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon pack.  The sentiment panel secured down with dimensionals also holds the ribbon in place.  

What do you think?  Wouldn't this be a fun little gift for the chocolate and coffee lover on your list.  I plan to make more of these so I am glad that there are 15 of these cute cards in the kit!

Thank you for joining us, now hop over to  Darla's blog to see her fun creation.
