August 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternative: Meaningful Flowers

Welcome to our monthly “A Paper Pumpkin Thing” blog hop! Check out this month's Paper Pumpkin alternatives that we created and scroll down to join us on a blog hop to see what our creative friends have made with the contents of the August 2023 Meaningful Flowers Paper Pumpkin kit. Registration for the next Paper Pumpkin is closing on the tenth of September so make sure you sign up so you don't miss out on the creativity that is literally delivered to your front door.

August 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternative: Meaningful Flowers

For this kit, we created a fun fold card and a treat box. For the fun fold card, we used Azure Afternoon Cardstock for the card base and followed the score lines provided below. We then added elements from the Paper Pumpkin kit and embossed a piece of Basic White Cardstock using the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder. For the treat holder, we used Azure Afternoon Cardstock again for the card base and die cut the box out using the new Tricks & Treats Dies. The front of the box was decorated by cutting down one of the cards in the kit.

What's Paper Pumpkin?

Paper Pumpkin is the perfect way to jump into the world of paper crafting and get your creative “me-time” every month. Each month, we deliver all the stamps, ink, and paper you need to create a fun project, without any stress. Everything is precut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun part of crafting! Our subscribers always have cards and cute gifts on hand for every occasion. Your first kit includes a free gift from us—a clear stamping block. You’ll also build a collection of stamps and ink to use on other projects. There’s no pressure—you can cancel or suspend at any time.

Every kit includes an exclusive stamp set, ink spot, and embellishments to create a predesigned project. At least six times a year, we send an all card kit with eight or more cards. Sometimes the kit includes cards plus gift bags, banners, treat bags, or boxes. Other times, it’s home décor, giftables, or just treat packaging. No matter what it is—we promise you’ll love it, or we’ll make it right!
