July 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternative: Fun in the Sun

For this kit, we created a handmade gift card holder and a chapstick holder. For the gift card holder, we used Melon Mambo for the card base and followed the score lines provided below. We then added elements from the Paper Pumpkin kit and created our own Designer Series Paper form the envelopes. For the chapstick holder, we used Melon Mambo again for the base and scored at the measurements listed below.

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!
