Oh My Goodness! is last months Paper Pumpkin kit AWESOME or what? I don’t think I’ve ever used up all the extras that come with every kit. This is a long post. All the extras I used were from what I already had in my craft room. I didn’t buy anything extra. Now the only thing I need to do is fill up my box with everything “yellow”. Who am I going to send this to?
This is how the kit was meant to be done. I made 4 of the eight cards, and decorated the box with the stickers that came with the kit.
But look at what I did with the other 4 cards.
First I made this gift card holder. I went to Paperpumpkin.com to get this idea and the next. I ended up on Elizabeth Price’s blog. She made a gift card holder as one of her alternate projects. All you do is cut a slit 2″ up from the bottom. Fold it over to the inside for your gift card. Genius!
And then I saw this cute Water Bottle Treat. I just happened to have some Country Time Lemonade and that striped straw. The straw was in my “crafting” stash. It worked perfect for this project.
I added some of the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and some of the Flowers for All Season Gems. The clear ones look like water droplets.
And then I saw a shaker card by time4stamping.com. There was no directions, so I figured it out. It uses the Mason Jar Shaker Domes.
I know, it doesn’t look like the pineapple is big enough, but it is.
Now you need a hole for the straw to go in. Probably should have done this BEFORE I put it together, but it worked out fine doing it last. Use your Paper Snips to make a hole in the dome. Put the straw through it.
And here are some more cards I made with the left over pieces and my own card bases. I used the colors in the kit, Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce & Crushed Curry.
I used the Greenery Embossing folders on a couple of the cards. Tasteful Label Dies too.
And this is what is left of my kit. Sticker sheets & a few sequins. Not bad. I’d say I got my monies worth, don’t you?
This months kit is looking like another one that you won’t want to miss. And there is an add-on kit too. WHAT? I wish last months kit had an add on. You only have until July 10th to sign up for this kit.
