I had a fun evening with my May 2019 Paper Pumpkin! It arrived via the mail in a pretty little box that matched the cards inside. And of course everything inside was beautiful! I had my own acetate card boxes and decided to create individual gifts. And those, I can store in the beautiful box in came in. Here’s what that box looks like. No wonder I want to keep it! It may well become a gift box itself some day.
Wouldn’t you like getting that in the mail? It was a nice surprise. And fortunately I had some time last night to put it all together. I mostly followed the designs in this kit. I don’t always do that. But, last night I just wanted to sit down and create for fun. And coming up with designs can take time. What I did do as an original, is create little gift boxes by adding the cards to an acetate box and decorating the front of the box. You make 3 of 4 designs and the small acetate boxes are perfect to hold them. Who wouldn’t like getting this as a little ‘thank you” or appreciation gift?
Decorating the outside of the boxes is easy to do as you usually get extras of everything in a Paper Pumpkin kit. You can buy the acetate boxes that fit the A1 cards at ClearBags.com. The style is FBP118. I also have to say this month’s stamp set was worth the price of the kit. The designs are beautiful! I don’t have the stamp images yet. But I can show you April’s set, which was just as beautiful and gave me the idea to create more gift boxes this month. As a nice bonus from Paper Pumpkin, each month you can download a case insert for your Paper Pumpkin stamp set and store them in clear DVD Cases. Here is a sample of April’s Paper Pumpkin and the download:
As you can see, they give you a nice print of each stamp, which is true to size(depending on your printer). And then there is an image of the project so you can remember what the project looked like if you want to duplicate it later. I don’t store my Paper Pumpkin stamps this nicely. But I think it is great they provide this for those who like to!
The upcoming June Paper Pumpkin looks just as exciting. We don’t get to see the kit before it ships, but they do give us hints about what the project will be. June’s kit has a seaside theme. The idea behind June’s kit is to “spread kindness” and give away lots of little note cards. The kit includes a little card carrier you can keep with you to spread they kindness! This is truly the stamper’s way of paying it forward! Here is a sneak peek and a video below to show what fun you could have with this set.
