Sept. 2018 Paper Pumpkin

My favorite day of the month is the day my Paper Pumpkin arrives from Stampin’ Up.   Since Halloween is my favorite holiday I was hoping the kit would include some kind of treat container and I wasn’t disappointed. I didn’t need 24 treat bags that came in the kit, so I came up with some alternatives by adding Stampin’ Up’s Toil & Trouble Designer Series paper and some basic card stock from my “stash”.

Check out this amazing spider web from the Cauldron Framelits set, it was genius to make the die in a quarter circle so you can make 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or a full circle by putting them together, and the spider trinket and you have a card no one wants to throw away…ever!

Paper Pumpkin kits have been arriving at my home in the middle of the month for over a year now and I have loved every one of them and the price is so reasonable at only $20.00/month (including shipping). Kits are complete with EVERYTHING you need to complete the projects on the instructions including adhesives, you don’t even need scissors. It’s easy to add some of your own supplies to change things up a little like I have. You can cancel anytime, and next month they promise an fun Halloween project, I can hardly wait!
