Happy Halloween! It’s time for pumpkins, treats and hopefully no tricks! Since there are lots of real pumpkins decorating everyone’s front steps, lawns, windows, etc, I decided that I would tell you more about the orange box in the side bar of my blog that says Paper Pumpkin.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly papercrafting kit that is offered through Stampin’ Up. If you like suprises and crafting, you’ll love Paper Pumpkin. Each kit contains a small stamp set, an ink spot (a new color every month!) and all the supplies you’ll need to make that month’s project….papers, glue dots, embellishments, etc. And if you are a new subscriber, you’ll get a clear block with your first kit….so you’ll be ready to stamp and create!
Every month is a surprise…you don’t know what’s in the box until you open it up! The September kit was a special Halloween kit….all treats! No tricks!
This is what came in the box: special treat bags decorated with spider webs, spiders and orange stripes, Black & silver twine, glue dots, dimensionals, tags, ghosts, pumpkins and scary bats and stickers and the most important thing….directions!
Everything you need to make these little treat bags when you put in your favorite Halloween candy. My favorite is candy corn!
And you can make more spooky treats or cards….because you now have this cute little stamp set.
This kit made 24 gift bags (8 of each design), but I decided to not make all the bags and make a few cards instead with the supplies that came in the kit. These are two of the cards I made:
And don’t forget that every kit is different….but always fun to make!
The monthly cost of the kit is $19.95 which includes shipping. You can sign up for one month or prepay for several months. With Christmas just around the corner you can buy a month’s subscription as a gift! This is a great Christmas present for a friend, relative, co-worker….anyone you know who likes crafting!…..and surprises!
November’s kit is a special Christmas one! I can’t tell you what is in it, because it’s a surprise! But this is the box it will come in. You know it will be special because the box is not the usual orange!
But if you want to get the special Christmas crafting kit, the deadline to sign up is Sunday, November 10th! Your kit will be mailed to you about the middle of the month….in plenty of time for you to make what is in this special kit before Christmas.
