Tuesday was our monthly Paper Pumpkin Craft Time for open crafting – if you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me this time is for you – It’s my way of saying thank you for choosing me as your demonstrator.) So we spent the morning crafting together and sharing alternative ideas for the March kit.
If you haven’t seen the March kit it is super cute!
The kit always have a quick video in case you don’t want to read the instructions. LOL!
And I love the fact that Stampin’ Up! shares alternate projects for the kit if you don’t like the instructions included.
I’ve even seen the muslin bags whip stitched across the bottom to create a sachet filled with potpourri! Cool right?
So today I thought I’d share with you my alternate project that I made with the kit. I love to give little 3d gifts but don’t tend to use 3×3 note cards as often so I simply took one of our 2″ x 8″ Cello Bags (141703) and put some pencils I had picked up as basket stuffers for the kits and voila!
Cute? I’ve taken some quick shots to show you how I did the ears. I simply punched out a face using the punch 1 1/2″ Circle Punch (138299) and Whisper White Card stock and stamped the face I wanted. There are all kinds of cute combinations you can make with this kit. Then stamped the ears I wanted to use.
I fussy cut the ears and then stamped the floppy ear onto one of the stickers and cut it out before adding it to the ear.
A couple of the glue dots to attach the ears onto the face and added it to my note card that I turned so the opening went over the cello bag. The staple is covered by the bunny. I love the baker’s twine in the kit, so I tied a little bow to put on this little bunny with another glue dot.
The kits always come with lots of stuff that can be used for additional projects! AND these kits are great for all ages!!! Since they contain everything you need except scissors they are great gifts or even kits to take on the road so you can craft. It’s a surprise each month so there are all kinds of different kits.
