When I prepare for holidays and gift giving, I always appreciate holiday helpers. That is exactly what My Paper Pumpkin is. Sometimes they are cards, other times they are project ideas. Either way, to have something come to your door once a month and be your salvation is always a good thing. Because the holidays are so close, Stampin’ Up! is offereing a great deal on two great MPP kits, 15% off while supplies last. The Frights and Delights from last month and 2017’s November Back in Plaid are available for purchase at the discounted price, if you are a My Paper Pumpkin subscriber.
I know Halloween is next week, but it’s a great sale to pick them up for next year or a last minute option. Here is the Frights and Delights subscription kit, and refill option.
Here is the Back in Plaid kit from November, 2017. I really think the little stockings are so adorable and you can decorate them any way you like. Here is the kit and refill option.
Treats are always welcome and the packaging just kicks it up a notch. If you are not a My Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can subscribe here now and be able to purchase these kits as well. One great benefit of the My Paper Pumpkin subscription is having it delivered right to your door. No muss, no fuss. Another benefit is the “all in one” feature of the products and directions. Open the box and go. The kids love them because they can make projects for their class. The instructions have step by step instructions and pictures to make it easy for the kids to participate. Get either of these kits from my online store.
Happy Friday! This week I am sharing another of the recent class projects, a First Frost Baker’s Box. The Baker’s Boxes are a great size for adding a treats or other small gifts. One of my favorite embellishments for boxes is to make a belly band and add embellishments so naturally, I decided to use one for this project. For embellishment, the First Frost Bundle coordinates beautifully with the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP).
To decorate the Baker’s Box, cut a 1-3/4″ wide strip of Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create the belly band. Since the DSP will not fit completely around the box, cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock using the large Layering Ovals Framelit to connect the DSP and to act as a base for the embellishments.
The stamped floral uses the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Markers to color the stamp, then “huff” by blowing your breath over the inked stamp to keep the ink moist and stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. Cut using the Floral Bouquet Framelits. Also use the Framelits to cut Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Vellum images. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock using the large oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Stamp “enjoy” (from the Takeout Treats Stamp Set) using Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad on the right side of the oval. Attach to the Blackberry Bliss oval on the baker’s box belly band. Layer the cut embellishments onto the left side of the oval. Finish by adding a doubled Linen Thread bow and scattering Basic Rhinestone Jewels around the paper.
