I hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving! I took a little break. We had our daughter and grandkids for brunch and then the kids went to their dad’s for the week-end. So hard to share…….Got most of my Christmas decorations put out, just need to work on my porch and a few other things. Now I am back to work (like you can call this job work……) and getting ready for my Stamp Club Class tomorrow night. My craft room looks like a bomb went off. How does that happen? As hard as I try, it always ends up a total mess.
This kit is AMAZING! I put together a few of the tags, and love all the layering. I know I will have lots of left over pieces too. Watch the video and see how easy and elegant these tags are.
Each Winter Gifts kit comes with 14 sheets die-cut elements, 3 sheets laser-cut elements, 4 sheets silver foil die-cuts, 1 sheet silver foil die-cut elements, 3 yds. 1/4″ cotton ribbon, 8 yds. silver twine, 72 sequins (2 colors), 175 mini dimensionals, and 150 adhesive dots. And don’t forget the exclusive stamp set and Shaded Spruce ink spot!
The weather outside is frightful, but inside it’s so delightful.” Q: Why? A: Because for creative folks, cold weather is crafting weather. Of course! So dig into this month’s kit and see what kind of alternate projects you can come up with while you let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Don’t forget to post your creations online using the hashtags #paperpumpkin and #wintergifts. We want to see your “cool” projects—and so do thousands of other Paper Pumpkin subscribers!
A Gift for You Tag
Here’s a Paper Pumpkin challenge: Make a spiffy handmade box and tag for a super-special friend this holiday season—and maybe include a treat and a prepaid subscription code inside! Best Christmas present ever! *wink*
To make the box, score 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper at 7/8″ on all sides. Score an 8″ x 8″ piece of Shaded Spruce Cardstock at 1-15/16″ on all sides. Snip the ends and adhere the box and lid sides using Tear & Tape Adhesive. So easy and sure to impress!
To make this winter wonderful card a “standout,” we added dimension to those chilly-looking tree branches using Snowfall Accents Puff Paint, then sprinkled on a few “berry” red rhinestones for sparkle and shine.
How is this for fast and easy? Step 1: Make a tag from this month’s kit. Step 2: Adhere it to a piece of beautiful cardstock. Instant card! Besides enjoying your thoughtfulness, the lucky recipient can regift your handmade tag!
