Flora & Flutter – Paper Pumpkin Fun!

I love the surprise each month when my Paper Pumpkin Kit arrives each month in the mail – it’s like Christmas all over again!

The December kit, Flora and Flutter was fantastic with the laser cut outs and glimmer paper. I loved the projects as soon as I saw them!

And last month when we got together at my Paper Pumpkin Craft Time my friend Shirley and I decided to play a bit and come up with an alternative idea for one of the projects. Want to see it? Here is what we came up with.

The kits came with a ton of goodies in it! and typically there are always extra pieces to work with after you finish the kit as they instruct.

How’d we do it? Basically all I added was a Berry Burst Card base, everything else was in the box. I took the Peekaboo Peach slated piece and cut the longest slat from the circle.  And then I cut down the card itself to 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ for the focal point.

Once I did that I did the following


1. Cut a Berry Burst card stock base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″; scored on 4 1/4″ and folded in half.

2. Adhered the circle piece, minus the slat onto the front of my card base.

3. Adhered the Glimmer Paper to the Peakaboo Peach layer with adhesive strips provided.

3. Then I adhered the laser cut piece that I’d cut down to the Peekaboo Peach/Glimmer layer. (The Glimmer Paper is slightly smaller than this laser cut piece so it didn’t peak out.)

4. Stamped the butterfly in Berry Burst onto precut butterfly piece and attached it with a glue dot.

5. Stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst onto the precut banner.

6. Adhered the slat pieces to either side of the finished banner and trimmed as desired. Then added it below the focal point.

Voila! a beautiful full sized card simply by adding a piece of Berry Burst card stock!

These kits are fantastic for the beginning crafter and are wonderful for all ages since everything is included.

But hurry you’ll want to sign up before the end of the day January 10th (11:50 pm MT) so you can get your January Kit!!!

Paper Pumpkin Cute Conversations!

Check out these quick and easy treats I made for friends and family using the supplies I found in my January Paper Pumpkin Kit – Cute Conversations.

The kit came with a ton of stuff – along with a great stamp set, ink and adhesives! I love the Watermelon Sequin Trim included in this kit. What fun!

Paper Pumpkin Cute Conversation Kit Contents

So after watching the quick little video I set to work. (You can see it below) I liked the projects as designed but the cute little pouch that was created using two of the hearts wasn’t big enough for all the treats I had bought.

Here is the original little pouch I made for my daughter.

Paper Pumpkin January 2016 projects Cute Conversations (8)

As you can see it holds these cute little tic tac mints that have little sayings printed on them – I couldn’t resist!

What’s the chocolate?

Paper Pumpkin January 2016 projects Cute Conversations (5)

A favorite in our house and as you can see our little Mini Treat Bag made with the Thinlits Dies holds a lot since there was plenty of room to add a little something more to this chocolate. If you’d like to see all the variations of the little treat bags I made you can stop by my face book page HERE.

And my final project is this cute little candy holder I made as a little goodie for my Technique Class yesterday.

Paper Pumpkin January 2016 projects Cute Conversations (2)

It holds, a piece of Dove chocolate – Want to know how I made these? Well it was easy with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334).  I scored down from the top of the heart 1 1/2″ and then again at the 3″ mark. And scored again 1″ in on each side of the heart.Next I stamped the sentiment I wanted in the space created by the fold lines. Folded the sides in and added a touch of Snail Adhesive to hold the candy and then folded the Folded the top (rounded part) of the heart over candy and adhered the point with a Glue Dot (103683)! Decorated it as desired and voila! A sweet little treat!

Want to see the kit in action? Here is the video –
